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.

Robyn Gallimore

for Red Bird Knits   2012

Bavarian Shawl

A full sized shawl knitted from the neck down in fingering or lace weight yarn. Lace motif is borrowed from a Bavarian sock.

Companion to my Bayern Small Shawl which is knitted from the bottom edge up.

Combine several coordinating colours or use just 1 - options are many.

(Gallimore instructs: "A whimsical attitude towards colour and a lack of fear of colour matching is a good thing to have." She's used 4 coordinating colours of fingering weight yarn to create the shawl you see in the main photo, and, no, the yarns are not all from the same company. This is the perfect stash project for the shawl knitter who has remaining bits of her favourite yarns tucked away or just one precious skein waiting for the right project--ed.)
