Plucky Knitter Capsule No. 1!

Dear Friends,

It is with the utmost delight that we bring you our latest collection of knitwear patterns. Introducing Plucky Knitter Capsule No. 1!  This focused collection of six patterns is just what we all need to get us through this last stretch of Winter. With a fabulous mix of colorwork, cables and texture, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

As with previous collections, this is truly a collaborative effort and I could not be more grateful to my partners in crime! My heartfelt thanks go out to Hayley, Jill and Michele for their talent, time and dedication. We only hope that you enjoy knitting this collection as much as we did creating it. Now for the big question…what will be the first thing to hit your needles?!

 

 

To Celebrate the launch of this capsule collection release we are offering patterns and the yarn at the same time!

  • Be Steel My Heart: Steely. Smokey. Inky. Blue-ish. Charcoal-esque. Neutral with a twist that is magical with Royal Icing. Slightly more blue than Gumshoe, but still charcoal leaning.

 

 

 

 

  • Royal Icing: Shades of light pink with subtle icy lavender undertones. Slightly lighter & much more cool leaning than Cloche. Leaning more lavender than Dreamy.

Special Announcement: Michele Wang

 

 

2018 is off to a stellar start here at Plucky!

 

For starters, we are beyond delighted to announce that Michele Wang has been appointed Design Director for The Plucky Knitter! Not only is Michele a fabulous designer, but she is also one of our favorite people and we are so fortunate to have her join our little crew.

 

Michele began designing knitwear when she couldn’t find the exact cowl she wanted in stores. After playing around with a few stitch patterns and cast-on numbers, the Eternity Scarf was born, her very first design. Drawing from her background in fine arts, fashion design and business, she left the corporate world in 2011 to pursue designing knitwear independently. Since then she’s been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave’s knit.wear, Pom Pom, Amirisu, along with her plethora of gorgeous independent designs.

Michele has always been a lover of texture and cables, but her love of colors emerged when she came across The Plucky Knitter. In 2014, she designed her first piece using Bello Worsted in Signature Cocktail and aptly named it Corvina. Soon thereafter, Verdea, Treccia, Seaview and Quadri, to name a few, were released – all designs driven and inspired by the color of the and the textures the yarns created.

While we have our own distinct design styles, we have found they dovetail beautifully, and together we’re committed to developing patterns for you that are unique, modern yet timeless, and showcase Plucky yarns beautifully.

Please join me in welcoming Michele, our new Design Director, to the Plucky Crew!!

 

 

Goodbye Nifty


Going, Going, Gone!
2018 is off to a great start here at the Plucky Barn, and boy is it invigorating! We’re making room for some new things, which means we need to say goodbye to some old friends (Cambridge has already begun its departure) to make room for the new. So, without further adieu, it’s time to send Nifty on its merry way.

Nifty is a beautiful 4 ply fingering weight yarn, comprised of a blend of 60% Merino, 30% Cashmere and 10% Nettle Fiber, with 310 yds per 115 g skein. Nifty is regularly priced at $30 USD/skein, we’re now offering it for $22. The merino/cashmere blend keeps it oh so soft and provides a lovely drape, while the small amount of nettle fiber gives the tiniest bit of sheen and textural finish to your fabric.  This unique base is simply perfect for all of your Spring and Summer knits! We’re rounding out the update with a handful of our other favorite bases for warm weather knits, plus a selection of colorways that we love for not only for Spring, but for how they translate onto the various fibers.  So now is your chance to stock up on a gorgeous (and, don’t forget, luxurious) base at a very special price!

 

 

Bases Offered:

  • Feet
  • Halo Worsted
  • Nifty ($22 Discontinued Pricing)
  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Sweater Aran
  • Traveler
