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.

Gone to the Dogs Purse for Right-Handed Crocheters

This tapestry crochet purse is basically a cylindrical basket with a strap. A flat spiral base is crocheted first, then when the diameter of the base is no longer increased, the edges of the spiral move upwards to form the sides. The motif is twenty-four stitches wide, so the base of the purse is a multiple of twenty-four stitches. It is possible to make a variety of sizes with the same design motif simply by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches in the base. You could, of course, also substitute another motif. The instructions and graphs are for right-handed crocheters (there is another pattern for left-handed crocheters; see Gone to the Dogs Purse for Left-Handed Crocheters).
