To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 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.

Rushmore Cowl

Rushmore Cowl is knit in the round in one piece. Its unique texture is created by staggered pleating of horizontal purl stitch bands. The purl stitches can be further emphasized by working them in a contrast color, but the design is effective in either one or two colors. The pleats make Rushmore warm and cozy and, as one tester described it, “the pleating is addictive!”

This is a quick and easy knit, requiring only knit and purl know how. The technique for pleating is fully explained with a photo tutorial. Pattern is easily modified into a longer infinity cowl or a flat scarf.

(The matching Rushmore Hat is also available as a separate pattern for $6, or you can purchase the Rushmore Hat & Cowl as a set here for $10 and save $2. Naturally we recommend the latter option, since you'll obviously be knitting both pieces in many different yarns and colourways for years-- Ed.)
