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.

8557 Waistcoat

This is an extravagantly simple, waterfall-style vest with straight sides, nicely curved armholes, and a magnificent cabled collar. It's one of those things you see in the poshest stores because it doesn't need to explain itself-- everyone seeing it just says to themselves: "Oh. Of course. That's exactly right." It goes with everything and looks as appropriate with jeans as it would over a dress. The collar is knit separately and sewn on to the piece. No short rows, no folderol; there's just elegance and confidence here.
