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.

NHK26-3 Felted Cabled Bag

This is just a fabulous felted bag for many reasons. First, you make it in long strips (so you could customize the handle lengths if you want them longer), which makes it ideal travel knitting. Second, there is a variety of cable stitches, so it's hard to get bored. Third, the design is subtle and beautiful, and allows for a tremendous amount of colourplay. Fourth, because the strips are not very wide, you could practice knitting back backwards (KBB: knitting from left to right and then right to left, without turning the work; instructions on the net), a useful skill. And it fits anybody! A great gift, too. This marvellous feltable yarn is now produced by Rowan. From Nashua Handknits Book 26, Designer Bags.
