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.

One of my favourite things in my garden is Clematis Montana. It twines around our front door, creating a glorious spectacle as it mingles with a deep red rose. Montana awakes from its winter sleep in the middle of spring and when I see those fat buds starting to form, for me it signals the beginning of summer.

This toe-up sock has a panel of leaves growing up from the toe, up the foot and front of the leg, with flower buds appearing as the pattern moves into the leg. These leaves are bordered on both sides with dainty cables. The back is plainer and has a mid-section of rib to pull the fabric in, above an Eye of Partridge and cable heel flap. It makes use of Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Architecture, which is reproduced here with Cat’s kind permission.

I’ve graded this sock as “intermediate” mainly because of the construction of the sock, which may not be familiar. The design on the sock is fully charted and should not be too challenging, especially to anyone familiar with cables. A few cables will need to be worked from the reverse on the heel flap, but the instructions are given how to do this.
