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.

Fernweh is the sentiment of longing to be someplace far. A bit like homesick, but with a twist, longing for a far away place and not necessarily one you have actually been to.

This shawl is the same way, familiar and different at the same time. A simple garter stripe shawl, but with a twist.

This asymmetric shawl features a mosaic slipped-stitch border and is especially designed for all of us that would rather use up as much of the yummy yarn on hand, this shawl does not have a main and a contrast color, but rather 2 equals.
Only one color is used per row, the intricate looking border pattern is all done in a slip stitch/mosaic technique, no stranding yarn or working with 2 colors at one time required!

The pattern shifts colors and uses up as much of both yarns as possible!
