Price increase for Loup and Léontine crochet patterns, and the reasons why

Posted: Monday, April 4th, 2016 @ 4:40 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | 2 Comments »

I’ve been thinking about this for a long while now: writing crochet patterns which are getting more and more detailed, with 12 pages of step-by-step instructions, tons of in-progress pictures and 3 pages of tutorials unanimous praise for “clear and easy to follow” instructions in my patterns and yet, it’s still difficult to make ends meet seing the […]

Happy New Year !! My year is starting with a new design: Léontine, crocheted hooded jacket for women. Tons of fun working the Braided edgings.

my older daughter has been asking for a long hood for ages. and ages. i did need a sample garment to photograph each step of the construction of a tailor-made cardigan for my workshop. this seemed like a good occasion to make her something. work on the basis of a regular top-down cardigan, and add […]

Posted: Friday, June 12th, 2015 @ 10:30 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | No Comments »

I’ve had requests for larger sizes for my patterns ever since I published Loup. Seemed like a good idea… except I didn’t know where to start, having heard many times you can’t just keep on increasing the sizing exponentially. Plus sizes are specific, and while my designing method is usually to create the garment directly […]
