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


Squash Blossom

With its use of turquoise and delicate lace patterning, this shawlette is reminiscent of the elaborate necklaces typical of Native American jewelry.

Just like its source of inspiration, it uses an image commonly found in Native American jewelry, the squash blossom.

This piece is worked from the top down. Increases embedded within each RS row cause the piece to grow and flare quickly. The result is a shawlette with a squared bottom border and generous coverage at the shoulders.
