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.

2434 Cardigans (ages 2 - 13)

In which the road to comfort is paved with traditional great looks. The scale of this Aran patterning is smaller than is often the case, befitting the smaller size of the wearers. Therefore the kids wear the cardies, not the other way around. Bobbles are tamed inside 'O' cables, neat and linear. Raglan sleeves feature one panel of these right down the middle. The rest of the stitchwork is either 1/1 cabling (find a resource on the web to tell you how to do this without cable needles!) and knit/purl work. Choose between a straight-up crew neck, or a hood-- either version would appeal to either sex.
