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.

A sleek fingerless mitt featuring all-over twisted ribbing and a central cable panel reminiscent of little owls, peeking out through the trees. Strigidae is the proper name for an order of owls across North America. The wee saw-whet owl is my favourite.

Keep these handy for indoor comfort all fall and winter long, or outdoor layers in the transitional seasons!

Instructions include a charted pattern for the back of the hand. Knitters should be comfortable working from a chart and working twisted stitches. Pattern instructions are 3 pages long and include tips on working cables without a cable needle.
