The Family That Crochets Together…

on April 19, 2012

…stays together? Amen to that, Daddy-o.

I am very fortunate to have had a really happy childhood. And I remember that crocheted garments were definitely a part of that childhood. Lately though, I have been wondering how much better my childhood could have been if someone had bought the Patons Crystal Family Crochet patterns and got to work on the Jumpers, Cardigans, Suit, Vest and Singlets. (Uh huh, a crocheted Suit.)

But maybe it’s not too late! For less than $4 on etsy, you can get your hands on these patterns and make sure your family is the best dressed in town. People won’t be able to tell if you’re being retro or ironic or, like, totally hip, groovy and fashion forward. And I really want to wear that crocheted suit to work (although am guessing it wouldn’t be quite the thing for a rainy day). If only to get the look of appreciation that Crochet Daughter is giving Crochet Mom in the black and white photo here…

With seven different patterns for men, women and children, you can crochet your way to family happiness in no time. But don’t limit it to your family – this crocheted goodness should surely be shared with colleagues, neighbours and random strangers on the bus. Stitch it up with this collection, or one of the many other foxy patterns from SparrowFinds.

      Marcie, I would love to – but I can’t guarantee it’ll look anything like those photos! Maybe I could start with a crocheted hat and work my way up to a suit for you too?

  2. You crack me up! 🙂 Awesome post!

    Is that you in the red singlet and are you still getting royalties from that?

      JM, I think the red singlet kid is a boy, although it is hard to tell. And I did have a polka dot top similar to that one. But I really wish I was one of the people in the black & white photos – they are too funny!
