“Camargue” is a triangular area of Provence in the south of France. With the Rhone delta and salt wetlands, it’s famous for its pink flamingos, white Camargue horses and black bulls.

Marin d’Odouce sweater – Discover the crochet star stitch with this marinire style striped jumper

Posted: Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018 @ 10:57 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | No Comments »

This marinire 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 […]

Ravelry prices of my crochet patterns will soon be in €uros

Posted: Saturday, March 31st, 2018 @ 10:06 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Etsy | No Comments »

I’ve seen it coming for a while, but I waited as long as I could: Because the rate of the $ (USD) keeps going down vs the €uros, because designing and selling crochet patterns, along with translation of knitting and crochet patterns, is my main job and only source of income I have finally decided […]

New crochet pattern: Bucheron socks for men.. or kids and women socks too

Living in the french Alps, it can get pretty cold around here in the winter… And instead of buying my husband yet more woolen socks, I decided I could make him some, armed with my new sock making skills :-) So here they are: the Bucheron socks (= lumberjack in french). Classic hardwearing socks, with […]

New crochet pattern – Open Spaces coat

Posted: Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 @ 12:49 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | No Comments »

The Open Spaces coat is the perfect mix of style and comfort, when you want to be nice and cozy in the winter. Crocheted with Super bulky yarn, it is amazingly quick to crochet with all these “open spaces” (chains are soooo much faster to make than full stitches). The hood is totally optional, so […]

New crochet pattern: Marguerite socks, also available as KITS

Posted: Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 @ 4:56 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | 5 Comments »

Starting something completely new (to me)… Crocheted socks ! Socks… I tried to knit them ages ago. Then tried to crochet them. But that never worked out, too fiddly to knit, too thick and not enough comfortable when crocheted… I could not picture socks crocheted in single crochet, even elongated sc… Yet I still kept […]

Every once and again, crocheters will ask me how they can crochet one of my designs.. but in another size. Let’s focus today on how to do that for kids and pre-teens. For instance, this week, Karine S. asked: “Hi Sylvie do you sell a pattern for a dancing poppies sweater in sizes 6 years […]
