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.

Turn Again Tote

"Here's a bag with pockets," announces Abel, "inside & out! Lots of places to stash your stuff. It can be large enough for a knitting tote (of course) or small enough for a handbag. The construction is unique; the entire bag is knitted as one unit, so no seams! Shown in Cascade Eco Wool (largest in brown), Cascade 220 (medium in green/blue), and a mix of sport weights (small in red/black), with wonderful handles from Homestead Heirlooms." An ingenious pattern, intriguing and with lots of tips, photos, and diagrams for 3-needle-bind-offs, felting, and knitting up stitches. Gauge varies depending on size; gauges given are sport, worsted, and aran/chunky yarns respectively, pre-felting.

For more bags using the same technique, see Circling Infinity, Twist & Shout and Around 'N Around.
