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.

53 Color Me Pretty Sweater (1-14 years)

Color Me Pretty Sweater is the second design in the series of fun Fair Isle garments that I have designed.

(The Color Me Pretty Skirt for ages 2 - 10 is available here; the Color Me Pretty Hat is available here; the Color Me Pretty Scarf is available here-- Ed.)

You could use the neutral color combinations shown here, or you could use black as a background to showcase a variety of bright colors, which in turn creates a gradient rainbow effect in the Fair Isle colorwork design. The Fair Isle design lends itself to many possibilities of various color combinations; the version shown is just one of them. You can work with as little as one contrast color and with as many as you would like.

Color Me Pretty Sweater is worked entirely in the round from top down and has an A-line shape; the lower section features a colorwork design. Since children significantly vary in height, the top’s length is easily customizable.
