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.

Leventry is a sophisticated shawl worked in two colors of fingering weight yarn. Starting with a garter tab, the shawl is worked from the top down and begins with two-color stripes that combine the textures of stockinette and garter stitch. The lower portion is highlighted by a band of geometric lace, and the border is finished with an additional stripe of color and a lacy picot bind off.

Roughly 400-420 yds./366-384 m of each color is needed for this shawl. The sample used less than one skein of each color of the recommended yarn.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:
- do a provisional cast on and pick up stitches along a garter edge (for the garter tab),
- knit and purl when working flat,
- do directional increases,
- work lace stitches from a chart or written directions,
- do a centered double decrease, and
- do a cable cast on (for the picot bind off).

The lace portion of this shawl is both charted and written.

This pattern has been professionally tech edited.
