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.

Kim Hargreaves



While you will look lovely wearing this intriguing vest on its own in warmer weather, we dream of it as a layering piece throughout the year: the deep cut of the armhole and the plunging V want to dance with other garments. Hargreaves is the mistress of detail and shapes not only the waist but the shoulders to fit your slightest curve, and the asymmetry of the left and right fronts is beautifully judged; this is shaped with wrapped short rows within the moss st (USA: seed st) fabric. To perfect the fit for your body, you can place the button loop and button anywhere that suits you best.

Please note that the pattern is A4 size and landscape-oriented; North Americans should pick "shrink to fit" in their printer options if accustomed to letter size printing.
