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.

Linda Socks (Toe Up)

My mom was the inspiration for this sock design. She was excited to get her first pair of hand knit socks and loves butterflies so I thought it appropriate to design a special sock just for her.

Knit from the toe up, the lace pattern creates a stretchy sock that knits up quickly. And, when the butterfly pattern is added to the back of the leg, the sock becomes extra-lacy making it great to be worn during the warmer times of the year.
