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.

7056 Ladies' Waistcoat

Super-easy, super-fast, super-flattering: you'll find yourself wearing this waistcoat all the time. There's no armhole shaping to mess about with, so that's really simple knitting. This could have made it look undesirably boxy except for two things. First, there's waist shaping; second, the shoulders are sloped so much that your eye draws an imaginary diagonal between shoulder end and your waist, which actually slims. And of course you can place the button loop and button anywhere you want for a perfect fit. So in fact, 4 - 6 balls of the Super Chunky With Wool are a ticket to not only contentment, but pride and good looks too.
