To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 15 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.

Celtic Fichu

•FICHU: a woman's light scarf that is draped over the shoulders and fastened in front or worn to fill in a low neckline.

This is a shaped Shawl that can also be worn as a hooded scarf. The shawl is started from a shaped back piece that the “wings” are picked up from and then knit out. Most of the edging is knit on as you go with only the very ends of the wings and the edges of the back needing the edgings knit on.

The collar is shaped at the back of the neck, starting from one edging and shaped up and then down to the next edging on the other side of the neck.

None of the lace techniques in the shawl are unusual or difficult, but, except for the edgings and wings (which are mirrored), every row is different.
