Easy crochet star stitch sweater: Marin d'Odouce, crochet pattern by Sylvie Damey

This marinière style sweater has been on my mind for a long time… Cascade yarns went along with my project and sent a batch of lovely “wool 220” for me to play with.

The idea was there, but I swatched with all sorts of crochet stitches to find the perfect textured stripes: I wanted an interesting texture, which would not obscure the overall design.

Then it struck me: that famous crochet Star stitch, which you see everywhere on Pinterest and in those pretty japanese books ! I never really tried it as it often looks too busy and compact for my taste. But hey, how about trying it only for discreetly textured stripes ?

I swatched and loved the result !

So, here it is: a classic top down sweater, with a shoulder opening closing with beautiful porcelain buttons made by french local artisan Camelir creations, and soft textured stripes which both make the sweater enjoyable to crochet and interesting to wear…
