The Plucky Knitter Fingering Weight Pattern Inspirations

 
 

We find that when you come to a trunk show with some ideas before you walk in the door (a hat for your sister, a cardigan for yourself, a shawl for your daughter’s wedding in the fall), you’re much more likely to make smart purchases. When you have specific patterns in mind, it’s even easier to decide what to buy–the only decision left is which colors to choose.

We’ve picked 20 of our favorites (at the moment!) for fingering weight below. We encourage you to spend a bit of time over the next week studying these patterns–as well as searching for others, of course! Click on the links below and you’ll visit each pattern’s Ravelry page, where you can read descriptions, determine exact yardage amounts and plan your ideal color schemes. We won’t have the time during the trunk show to purchase/print these patterns for you in-house–please support these independent designers by purchasing their patterns now, directly from them.

Sarah will be bringing a variety of yarn bases with her on Saturday, May 28th–while we don’t know exactly what’s coming, here are some of the Fingering Weight bases we requested specifically for our trunk show that would work well with any of these patterns.
