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.

Laura Bryant

for Prism Yarn   2016

8601 Goldilocks Ponchos

In which Bryant makes even the most unskilled knitter look like she stepped right out of Vogue: this piece is as easy to knit as it is spectacular to look at. Except for the first couple of rows, it is all knit in the round, with the neck picked up afterward in the delicious furry Plume and worked out a little from there. For the longer sizes (Mama and Papa Bear, shown in the darkest and blue/brown colourways respectively), work a round or two of Madison or Symphony every 2 - 4 rounds, alternating with the Full Stuff in the body. Aim for a gauge of 14 stitches to 4", but don't fret about it. Every garment will be different, and every one a marvel.

N.B. The main yarn for these garments is Full Stuff. While a member of the fabulous Stuff family, it is so new that a description for it is not yet available even on the Prism Yarn site. We will provide a proper yarn listing as soon as Prism makes it available.
