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.

6081 Oscar and Little Oscar (age 5 up)

We had a dream of a sweater we'd like to see a man or boy wear, and this is just about it. Men in gansey styles look just fantastic, and this one has traditional elements (the split garter welt, the patterned yoke) without any of the ones that make them more challenging to knit (underarm or neck gussets or saddle strips at the shoulder). Originally, of course, ganseys were worked in a 5 ply tightly-spun wool, to throw the stitches into high relief; this version, in a luxurious Egyptian cotton, accomplishes a more lustrous result in less time. An absolute classic.
