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.

01-2014 27 Knots

27 Knots are DK weight boot socks. I liked the cable because it looked kind of like it was blowing away… so I thought of the Beaufort Wind Scale. It’s measured in nautical m/p/h. They call them…knots! 27 Knots would be Gale Force, which could certainly blow away a cable. So there is the complicated story of the sock name. They are a quick knit in Sweet Fiber Merino Twist DK.
