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.

for Cherry Tree Hill   2009

CTH-300 Fine Cable Brim Hat

This hat won honorable mention in the first Cherry Tree Hill Design Contest of 2009. Charming, disarming, the scale of it is quite perfect: you have a dainty little cable (worked back and forth in a strip to start) encircling your head, tiara-like. Joining this band is the only sewing. Then you pick up stitches around its perimeter, a lot of them, for a bloused beret-style effect. You work up from there and then decrease at the crown. You're advised to make the initial cable band 22" long, but of course you make it long enough to fit the intended head, just pick up at the recommended rate, then bingo... bespoke millinery! See the other winners here, here, and here.
