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.

4481 Sweaters (birth - age 7)

"Dagnabbit," you might be thinking. "I love the look of fair isle but am (insert either 'frightened' or 'worried') about doing it. How can the beloved child's sweater be livened up with my simple skills?" Ask not for whom the Snuggly Baby Crofter tolls: it tolls for thee. This is an intensely simple design with lightly set-in sleeves and either a crew or V neck, and all you have to do to get the look is to switch from one solid yarn to a self-patterning one, and you're off. We love the soundness of using the Baby Crofter at the hem and cuffs and yoke; these are the places likeliest to show wear or spills first, and the yarn's lively interest makes those things much less noticeable over the long term, in addition to just looking great.
