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.

LEDAS-16 Super Bulky Winter Vest

A basic wardrobe piece for those in cold climes, thought out so well and so thoroughly that we are lost in admiration. First of all, there are lots of sizes for men or women. Second, you can choose to leave it open (i.e., with no closure as in the picture), or use one big frog or button, or insert a zipper (brown model). Third, there's a high neck, so it's self-scarfing. Fourth, the words 'if desired' run all through the pattern-- make it longer or shorter or however you like. Fifth, it's knit in one piece with no seams. Sixth, it's extremely quick to make. And very easy. Are you happy yet? We are! First gauge is for the Magnum; second for the Biggy Print. Plus-size version appears here.
