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.

New Canaan

New Canaan is the re-adaptation of my pattern "Canaan" which previously was only available as part of the e-book "The Basics".

New Canaan is a worked-in-the-round infinity style cowl with instructions for 5 different yarn weights: Fingering, Sport, DK, Worsted or Bulky. So you can use any yarn you would like with this pattern!

New Canaan is simple enough that you can enjoy it while you are watching a movie or sitting with your knit group, but because of the texture stitch pattern it will still keep you interested. It’s also a good pattern if you are a beginner because it includes YouTube videos, including one that shows you how to “join to work in the round” (in case this is your first in-the-round project).

Sample in photograph is the sport-weight version using The Fibre Company’s Road to China Light (and it only took 2 skeins).
