Pattern Description:

The Roselette top is my all-time bestselling pattern.. and many mums asked about a larger version of this design for themselves...

The violaine top is crocheted in one piece from the top down, is very easy to make (was the first sweater for many) and fits great all body shapes !

This top closes in the back with 2 oversized buttons for a bit of vintage flair.

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 and the book "1000 hats" by Annie Modesitt.
