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.

Color Tamer Scarf

This scarf was inspired by my desire to find a project that lived up to the potential in a highly variegated skein of Socks That Rock.

Color Tamer combines an easily memorized slip-stitch pattern with an integrated I-cord edging to transform even the wackiest variegated yarn from something spilling out of the circus clown car to a toned-down delight ready to take its place in the center ring.

The scarf starts uses a provisional crochet cast on and an I-cord bind off.

My sample uses Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test for the main color and Snowflake as the neutral contrast color. Make yours with the wildest Socks That Rock colorway you can find!
