Amazingly confortable, these slippers follow the natural curves of your foot like a glove. And I like granny squares so much that I had to insert them in those!
I love their look, somehow between morrocan Babouches and the pointy shes of Louis XIV (hey, I'm french ;-) )
I hope you will also find them fun to crochet (may customers did, making at least 2 or 3 pairs!), as their construction is a bit unusual using shorter and longer stitches to do the shaping.
A seamless project, they are also very fast to crochet. It takes me an evening to crochet one.
The babouches are sized for a medium's ladie's foot, with detailed notes on how to very easily alter pattern for longer or shorter feet.

Bonjour! I'm Sylvie Damey, french designer living in the french Alps. I learned to knit as a child. In 2004, the birth of my first daughter was the occasion for me to start publishing my own designs, learn to crochet, spin yarn...and even sew again. And, that's how ChezPlum started. My patterns have also been published in Knitty.com and the book "1000 hats" by Annie Modesitt.
