To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 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.

Fisherman's Cowl

Top off your favorite fisherman's sweater ... or your favorite tee shirt ... with this cozy neck warmer. The slip-stitch waffle rib is reversible and dense, and the cable edging allows the cowl to hug the neckline beautifully.

Fisherman's Cowl is worked flat in one piece from side to side, and grafted or seamed to form a cylinder - wider at the base, narrower at the top. This shaping doesn't require short rows, but is a natural result of the difference in row gauges between the waffle stitch and the cable.

(Shown with the gorgeous Fisherman's Daughter sweater-- Ed.)
