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.

NHK48-1 Chestnut Cardigan

An absolute knockout. Just what you look for-- something you can wear in any decade and have people's jaws hit the floor (your own not least). Wear it open or belted or closed with a shawl pin or whatever: it just looks fantastic. Make it in many colours and styles of yarn. All body pieces-- it has two sides, too, in addition to a back and two fronts-- are belled out at the hem. Generous, lush, rich-- the modern-day equivalent of a traditional mink coat, really, and yet quite easy to make. Collar is shaped with increases within short rows, but no wrapping. From Nashua Handknits Book 48, Day Into Night.
