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.

Libby Mills

for Green Mountain Spinnery

120 Islanders' Vest

Libby designed this vest after a visit to Scotland’s Outer Hebrides Islands, famous for their sheep and traditional knitting. The stitch pattern is based on Elizabeth Lovick’s book Patterns for North Ronaldsay Yarn. Knit in one piece, with careful placement of knit/purl motifs, it is appropriate for gals or guys.

(Oh, we are so in love. We have fallen in love from a great height. For whom do we make this first?-- Ed.)
