To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 15 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.

FD-141 Promise of Spring

There’s no explaining it. I took one look at the tulip border and the sundial stitches that I found while looking for ideas for this cowl, and simply had to use them together. How could I resist? Obviously, I couldn’t. One thing that we need most during cold and dreary winter days is the promise that spring is around the corner with its longer days, sunshine, and flowers.

Cowl is worked in the round with seed stitch along both edges to help keep it from curling. There are more rows of seed stitch on the edges of the larger cowl. The larger cowl is big enough to pull over the top of your head, and still keep the back of your neck warm.
