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 […]

Floralie cardigan crochet pattern now in PLUS SIZE: size XL to 3XL

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 […]

Turquoise for me please

Posted: Thursday, June 4th, 2015 @ 9:42 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | No Comments »

Funny how I used to loathe the color turquoise as a teenager. Turquoise was everywhere at that time, THE hot color ! Bracelets and jewelery, t-shirts and whatever. It was too much and I kind of swore to myself I’d never wear turquoise. BUT. This is precisely the reason why I try never to say […]

Playing with this floral motif for various other designs, I had the basic idea for the “Floralie […]

Just like the baby version “Lutin Marguerite“, this new elfin cardigan “Lutine des Fleurs” is crocheted top down in one piece with worsted weight yarn. It features […]

WIP wednesday, and testing !

Posted: Wednesday, April 1st, 2015 @ 5:16 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, WIP | No Comments »

Bulky flower cardigan now has buttons… large enameled coconut shell buttons !! Took a moment to photograph this sleeveless version, and will now continue to add sleeves. Only downside being that I should have remembered: Filz = felt in german/related nordic languages if I’m not mistaken… Which explains how this “Filzy wool” is not really […]
