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.

Trisha Paetsch



The Blawl blanket or shawl is the ideal gift or travel project as the middle section is fairly mindless to knit. The lace border adds interest, and doesn’t take long. Worked in the round from the centre out, it is easily customized for size or gauge, and since it is a square, it is easy to fold. It can be worn as a shawl, or tucked in around a sweet baby. Chose complimentary colours for the stripes and a bold contrast for the lace, as shown, or do the lace to match.

It is entirely possible to make Blawl in any weight yarn, from lace weight for a lighter shawl to chunky for a cozy blanket. The striped section can be worked to the size desired, and the stitch count required for the lace border is included below. The stitch counts used in the pattern are for fingering weight yarn. The fingering weight version shown (pink, brown and blue) measures 45” along each side of the square.
