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.

Need A Circular Yoke?

Here, in the glorious tradition of Elizabeth Zimmermann, is an empowering, teaching tool of a book that every knitter needs to own. Choose your desired finished size first (anywhere from 37" to 60"); then your yarn, anything in a standard weight from sport (24 sts to 4"/10cm) through chunky (14 sts to 4"/10cm); then all the components of the style you want literally from the neck down (choices abound). Detailed instructions guide you through the completion of the garment. There are tips galore. Even experienced knitters might gasp at the logic contained in just this one, for optional waist shaping: "Even if you don’t have a waist on the Front, you probably do at the Back. You can work the waist shaping on the Back only." Includes instructions for easy, wrapless short rows using Alice Yu's Shadow Short Rows technique. Gemmell and Fallone are each very experienced designers and teachers, and their years of answering questions make this the most informative, inviting, irresistible book we've seen in ages. All pieces are worked top-down.
