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.

HST312 Winter Solstice

This charming pair, first published in The Sock Journal, provides a little tutorial in a couple of valuable techniques. First, most noticeably, in the quilting stitch used to decorate the legs of the pieces. Second, in the peasant heel, which is very useful and easy to replace should you ever want to employ it in an actual pair of socks. Otherwise the construction is straightforward and beautifully explained. Our favorite thing besides their innate delightfulness is that you only have to make one of each! First gauge is for stocking, second for ornament.
