Friday Faves: Single Ply Fingering Sweaters

I have 4 skeins of MadTosh Tosh Merino Light and I started searching for garment patterns for it.  I realized there weren’t *that* many that fit my requirements of simple but with a little something extra.  I don’t want a simple top down raglan but I also don’t want the fuss of a complex stitch pattern.

These designs fit the bill.  Some of them use biased stitches to show off the variations of hand dyed beautifully.  A few have asymmetrical shaping to show off the yarn.  A couple have big cowls as the starring role.  And most have a looser gauge so you can take advantage of that gorgeous TML drape.

Be sure to look at the FOs as well – there are a few stunning examples done in TML.

What did I miss?  What are your fave tops for this type of yarn?  Given the crazy popularity of TML I’m sure you’ve all seen some beautiful FOs.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.

    I personally love all things Lisa Mutch. I haven’t tried her sweater patterns yet. But, I am a huge fan of her shawls. Check out Virago. Simple yet striking! She also has some terrific fingering weight and DK weight yarns on her Etsy site.

    I love them all but I’m not sure I would ever have the patience to knit with fingering weight ~ I might have to live vicariously through you :)

    So, which one did you choose? Oh, I see, from your next post. Can you tell I’m behind in my blogging?
