To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Dorothy Siemens

for Fiddlesticks Knitting   2006


This sporty vest is a more elegant version of your favourite fleece vest and will look great with dressier slacks as well as jeans. The easy-to-knit slipstitch pattern gives it colour and textural interest, and the zippered front gives it a clean, fresh look.

The vest is worked by knitting in one piece to the armholes, where the work is divided for fronts and back. After shoulder seams are sewn, simple seed stitch edgings are worked at armholes and fronts, and a seed stitch collar is knitted on. Finally, a separating zipper is sewn in (photographic instructions in the pattern).
