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.

NHK33-6 Shawl Collar Vest

We are thrilled to see this, because it is equal parts so handsome and so useful. We use the word 'handsome' advisedly; this looks to be an indispensable piece for dudes, too, as part of your outerwear (maybe adjust the bottom ribbing). Back and front are of course shaped the same, with a large cutout on the front neck to accommodate the shawl collar (this is not knit separately, but picked up and sewn down at the neck's base with no extra shaping). Back neck is dipped, shoulders are sloped. Body fabric is presented in reverse st st, but of course you could make it st st if you liked just by flipping the fabric before assembly.

This design is from Nashua Handknits Book 33, Quarry.
