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.

2013-07 Fender Hat

Because the men in your life need hats, but they insist they don’t want anything fussy. No bright colors. No fancy patterns. No design flourishes. But those sorts of things are boring to knit. So we have an interesting hat in disguise: it looks like a manly browny-black, but it’s actually a fantastic dark purple. And it seems to be a simple ribbed watchcap, but the ribbing is irregular and interesting. And it can be worn either way out – decide which side of the ribbing pattern you like the best – or just be assured that if you put it on inside out you won’t look like an idiot.

(This pattern is also available as part of The Rock 'n Roll Collection, bundled together with the Hofner Socks, Rickenbacker Shawl, and Gibson Mitts for the astoundingly low price of $12!-- Ed.)
