New crochet pattern: Marguerite socks, also available as KITS

Posted: Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 @ 4:56 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet | 4 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 […]

Tired of winter ? My new hooded “Boréal coat” – named after its pretty Noro colors reminiscent of northern lights – is sure to light up any bleak snowy day, and bring a smile to anyone you meet. As usual it’s crocheted in one piece from the top of the hood down. A textured edging gives it […]

Nothing beats bright colors to get through the winter… At the beginning, there was this superb yarn in yummy shades of blue and green, and my brand new Jimbo’s hook I HAD to try since it promised to be amazing (which it totally is). A tiny swatch proved those 2 were made to work together […]

Summer’s gone… and I finally retrieve the pics from my phone: A sunhat crocheted using the “Funshine” pattern by Tara Murray / Mamachee. Surprising at first how she uses the “wrong side” of the hdc as right side of the hat, but I end up really liking that look ! And still in the theme of summer: […]
