To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 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.

for Nashua Handknits

NHK43-3 Flared Vest

Explains Bingham: "The vest is worked in one piece from side to side, beginning at the left front edge, and ending at the right front edge. Because sideways garter stitch will stretch around the body, the vest is intended to be worn with negative ease. For the close fit shown in the photographs, select a finished size about 1” to 2” [2.5 to 5 cm] smaller than your actual bust measurement. The vest can also be worn with a wider gap between the fronts at the bustline to accommodate larger sizes." Lots of adjustment is possible here, and we love the little wrapped short-row flares that flirt up the hem.
