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.

8986 Sweater

A beautiful hybrid. This sweater is made in standard pieces, flat; then all the pieces are joined at the yoke and finished with shaping interspersed evenly among the cables-- but still worked flat. At the end, you sew the back left shoulder and neckband seams, and side and sleeve seams, and that's it. The result is a lovely, comfortable, tunic-length, ethnic-looking sweater that looks like it was knitted in the round, although it wasn't. Quick to make and always in style. Hug is no longer available, but possible substitutes abound-- just get gauge. A similar style in a DK weight of yarn is Sirdar 8959.
