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.

NHK31-1 Zig Zag Cardigan

Ah, beauty. The back is plain st st after the same little eyelet treatment you see on the cuffs. The sides are straight. The sleeves are set in with a proud high cap. But the fronts, my doves... nothing but mirrored simple cables, barely framed with more eyelets, along the opening; the cable continues on up the sides of the V neck to the shoulder. The front and back neck edgings are just a couple of rows of crochet (which makes the button loops). The result is exquisite simplicity. Quiet glory. Perfection, even. From Nashua Handknits Book 31, North American Designers 6.
