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.

Elizabeth Fallone

for Elizaknits   2013


Designer Elizabeth Fallone: "This easy-to-knit cowl will have you spiralling out of control! Due to the unique construction, the colour blocks stack on the bias."

Fallone has used garter stitch and eyelet rows plus easy, no-wrap short rows to create a dramatic long or short cowl knit in the round. Trapezoid's colour blocks stack on the bias. This looks and sounds complicated, but isn't. Just imagine how cheery this would be to put around your neck on a chilly, grey, winter morning.

Trapezoid uses one 100g skein of Shelridge DK (approx. 265 yds, 243m) of the main colour and 1/4 to 1/2 of a skein for each of the other colours depending on whether you choose the shorter or longer version. To make scarf gifts, just one additional skein of the main colour is needed for each.

(We are marvelling at how perfect this would be for all the physicists and engineers and scientists out there-- Ed.)
