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.

After Sunset

This shawl takes inspiration from Sonnet 73 by William Shakespeare, a poem which conveys both the beauty and the melancholy of autumn. The lace motifs here are reminiscent of boughs full of leaves, but still sparse and simple. Sweep into fall – or any season of lace – with this gorgeous, generously sized triangular shawl. Shown in Nimue Sock from Wooly Wonka Fibers, this is perfect for your favourite fingering weight wool or wool/silk blend.
