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.

First Frost

"Here is a fun combo for those "almost cold" days-- a pair of free-finger mitts and a headband to match! They are worked in the Mosaic Basketweave color pattern... don't fret about the color work, you only work one color at a time! Shown in Bonker's hand-dyed merino (main photo), in Henry's Attic's silk/wool with a hand-drafted silk cap from Ellen's Half Pint Farm (left in photo with two mitts) and in Jo Sharp's wool tweeds (right in photo with two mitts) ... or try some handspuns!" -- Jeanne Abel

This pattern is extremely well-presented, with many photos and tips-- including how to do the Magic Loop technique. From 2008.
