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.

Ane Cecilie Tofthagen

for Dale Garn (formerly Dale of Norway)

Bondegard (6 - 36 months)

It's hard to imagine anything more enchanting for a tiny child for spring, or any time you're nostalgic for spring. Here-- knitted in the round and steeked where necessary-- are classic drop-shoulder gingham patterns and utterly winsome geese, rabbits, spades, and carrots, all in fair isle. The pullover is steeked (that is, knit in the round and cut open) at the armholes, and worked in rows for the fronts and back neck openings. The buttons are fastened with crocheted loops. Cardigan is steeked down the front and at the armholes. The cap is knit entirely in the round, except of course for the ear flaps, from brim to crown.
