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.

What can I say? This pattern sprang, fully formed, from the yarn ball. (See more preview information on my blog). She’s been called a lot of things since…Corn Goddess, Tonantzin…but “Maize” stuck. Like ripe corn in a summertime field, with cabled furrows running around the body. You can also omit the sleeves for a tunic-length vest.

The color of Malabrigo used in the yellow sample is called “Frank Ochre” and it’s a stunner -- a lovely, deep yellow with hints of green if you look very closely. Fresh from the field! The green sample is knit in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in color Green Tea Heather.


Knitpicks Wool of the Andes (100% Peruvian High- land Wool/110yds/50g) 10 (12, 14, 15) skeins

or, as used in original yellow sample:

Malabrigo Worsted Merino (100% Merino wool, 210 yds/100g) 5 (6, 7, 8) skeins knit on US#9/5.5mm circular needle
