The Plucky Knitter Worsted 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 is which colors to choose.

We’ve picked 20 of our favorites (at the moment!) for worsted weight below. We encourage you to spend a bit of time over the next two weeks 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 feel free to purchase them now directly from the designers.

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 Worsted Weight bases we requested specifically for our trunk show that would work well with any of these patterns.
