The clever center spine on this shawl adds a unique design element that flows into an eye-catching chevron border. The Center Lane shawl is designed to be knit in your favorite Plucky Knitter fingering weight yarn. Directions are written for two sizes. A larger, 4-color design or a smaller version written to be knit with any Plucky Knitter Gradient Set. Either option gives you a fun knit with stunning results that is sure to be your new favorite!

April Snow – a Knitterella and Plucky Knitter exclusive!

PK-AprilSnow-Promo-WaxPoetic

 

We love warmer weather, we love lighter bases and we really love this new design from Knitterella.  Our great friend, Jill Zielinski, (aka Knitterella) has scored “a knitter’s trifecta”, combining Lodge fingering, an easy breezy accessory, in a three-color exclusive Plucky kit.  April Snow is a great way to accessorize sleeveless tops, cropped jeans, and little summer dresses.  This is a super quick, easy, and fun knit, combining intentionally dropped stitches and garter bands of color, in an airy asymmetrical shawl.

 

AprilSnow-Collage

 

April Snow calls for Lodge Fingering and we have a great line-up of Plucky fingering weight bases for you to choose from!  Although it’s not written for sport weight, can you just imagine this in pure Cashmere or with Traveler (that yak & silk..oh, the drape!)?!  We think it would be gorgeous and are offering sport as an option too, should you feel intrepid and want to give it a go!  Just keep in mind, it will effect your yardage (so the sport kits will each have an extra skein of MC)!

Bases Offered:
Bello*
Cashmere*
Crewbie
Feet*
Lodge Fingering
Oxford
Oxford 2.0
Primo Fingering*
Primo Sport*
Single*
Traveler

*Please keep in mind that the combos featuring Small Batch colorways will only be available on these select bases!

Hayley and I are already knee deep in planning great color combos and base options that we think will be super fun… and maybe just a wee bit unexpected!  Here’s a little taste of the combos you can expect to find on Wednesday, but you never know what I might sneak in at the last minute!:

*This bears repeating!: Please keep in mind that the combos featuring Small Batch colorways will only be available on these select bases!

If your weekend plans include a trip to Wool and Honey, in Cedar, MI, you will find a Plucky trunk show to help celebrate their “Sweet Sixteen” anniversary. Hayley and I will be on hand (along with a very nice selection of Plucky yarns) to help you select colors for what ever you are planning and to take additional pre-orders for April Snow!  We are really looking forward to saying “Hello!” to old friends and meeting lots of new friends!

Please join us on the Plucky Blog, Wednesday, May 25th, at 9:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m, EDT.  As per usual with our “mystery kits”, you may leave us a note in PayPal prior to check-out if you have a preference for colors or bases.  We’ll do our best to accommodate your request with what we have available!  If all goes well, mystery kits might ship early, depending upon what Hayley and I put together for you.  You will find an option to choose your base and then drop down menus to choose your color combination.  We may even sneak a few mystery kits into the update, too!    

A few important housekeeping items to note!:
  • This is a pre-order update and will ship within the normal time frame (approximate ship date:  Week of June 27th).
  • You can plan ahead by visiting our April Snow kit detail spreadsheet.
  • Each kit includes the yarn and the pattern.  Great news!!  Jill has offered to gift your extra pattern to a friend should you purchase more than one kit. She will be providing you with your exclusive pattern via Ravelry download within 24-48 hours after the update concludes.  Please allow her this time to respond with requests for gifting your extra pattern purchases!
  • Shipping costs of the kit will be added at check-out.
  • April Snow will remain a Plucky exclusive for six months.  Be sure to get your perfect summer knitting kit while it’s available!

Sophisticated Traveler – KIT UPDATE

SophisticatedTraveler-PROMO

I am so excited about Cassie Munksgard’s newest design, the Sophisticated Traveler Shawl, and to be able to offer it in kit form as a Plucky exclusive! You might know Cassie as Firedancer41dmb, on Ravelry and in the The Plucky Knitters group. Cassie brings us a shawl that is the perfect shoulder season wrap. The time of year when the air is still a bit chilly, yet there is the risk of encountering unexpected air conditioning, is fast approaching! You will want to be ready for it all with at least one Sophisticated Traveler. The generous size of this shawl allows you to wear it in a variety of ways, wrapped around you for warmth or casually tossed over your shoulders for the perfect accessory.

 

SophisticatedTraveler-Pattern-Collage-2

 

Though generous in size, this shawl is so light and airy and is written with two options for mixing bases (#mixthosebases)!  Using two different weights and fibers, each knit separately in some sections and then held together in others, gives you three different textures throughout the shawl. The pink version shown above was knit in Traveler Sport and Sophisticate in the colorway, Bellini. The different fiber content of the two bases lends itself perfectly to a subtle, tonal color change as well!  This is the perfect opportunity to dip your toes into mixing those bases. Cassie and Plucky have taken the guesswork out of what to mix together for you!

 

SophisticateTraveler-Splendor_2532

 

Shown in Splendor, this sample was knit with three skeins of Cashmere and one skein of Sophisticate.  You may have spied it in my pic on my own travels just a few weeks ago!  The grey version mixed two skeins of Oxford 2.0 in Brume with one skein of Plucky Lace.  We’ve put together some incredible possibilities for mixing your favorite Plucky sport weight with Sophisticate or your favorite Plucky fingering weight with Lace!

 

SophisticateTraveler-Brume_2531

Please join us on the Plucky Blog, Friday, April 15th, at 12:00 noon, EDT.  You will find an option to choose either the sport/sophisticate version or the fingering/lace combo.  Once you choose the base, you will find drop down menus to choose your color combination. Each combo will be a tonal selection with the exception of mystery kits.  So, if you choose Campari in the Cashmere/Sophisticate combo, you’ll receive 3 skeins of Cashmere and 1 skein of Sophisticate each in the colorway Campari.  If you’re an adventurous traveler however, perhaps one of our mystery kits may be an option for you?  The mystery kits may be tonal OR the bases may be contrasting colorways Hayley and I think will be perfect for playing together in this pattern.  If you’d like a tonal or contrasting mystery kit, there will be a button for each. As always, you can leave us a note in PayPal prior to check-out if you have a preference for colors or bases.  We’ll do our best to accommodate your request!

Let the planning begin with a few collages of the colorways that Hayley and I think will be positively smashing as Sophisticated Travelers!
