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.

The SWTC Design Team

for SWTC   2008


There are many layers of exuberance in this sock. There's the power of the yarn's variegation and extravagant colour; the texture of the 3 over 3 stitch cabling; the little lacy columns offsetting the cables and displaying the yarn's changing tints in a more open and diffuse way. The short-rowed heel does not use wraps, but rather k3 tog and p3 tog tbl to close gaps-- easier for some. The toe is a classic one, with decreases at the sides, not round. Altogether a powerful design, emphatic and dramatic and strangely personal.
