To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 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.

129.38 Sweater & Necklace

It's the shape and the scale. We know, it's a plain slightly scoop-necked sweater with stripes. Then why does it look so perfectly right? Because of every tiny shaping and placement detail. The waist and shoulders and back neck are all shaped. The sleeves are carefully set in. The neckline is astutely judged. All welt (ribbing) widths are perfectly calibrated. There's an art to tailoring with which most people are unfamiliar-- but the French were the first to perfect it, and it shows up here brilliantly. Finished measurements given below in inches are correct.
