To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 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.

8561 Slipover

We firmly believe that vests should be a part of any well-dressed man's wardrobe, and this one is an undisputed classic. This looks great worn under a blazer or on its own over a shirt or tee. Armholes have a good curve, but still leave you enough stitches to cover the shoulder well; back neck is straight. Back of the garment is pure st st, with the cable detailing appearing only on the front. The patterning is simple, but emphatic enough that it would show well in a heather or tweedy yarn, too.
