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.

002 Spiral Bag

This Spiral Bag is worked in a strip but this is joined as you knit. The pattern has clear diagrams to show you how.

The bag can be worked in any yarn because you knit to measurement not stitch count. You can work it in self-striping or multi-coloured yarn, a hand-made Multi-yarn made from your stash (instructions included), or in stripes.
The bags in the photos are worked in DK hemp yarn and a hand-made Multi-yarn made up of odds and ends of yarn. Buttons are tied onto the knots for decoration.

Pattern includes: clear step-by-step instructions for joining the strip, stitch diagrams, instructions for handle options.
