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.

Ilga Leja



Like the musical symbol for increasing volume, the Crescendo shawl gradually grows wider at both ends.

It does so with a series of short rows which add volume and drape, creating a shawl with unique shaping. Its versatility also allows it to be worn as a capelet when pinned at the side or front.
