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.

Red Cliff Mittens

The Red Cliff mitts are as lightweight as they are warm. The stranded colourwork pattern creates a dense fabric that blocks out the wind, while the use of fingering weight yarn prevents them from being bulky.

The colourwork pattern is worked on both the palm and back of the hand, as well as across the thumb gusset. Because it is both vertically and horizontally symmetrical, it flows seamlessly up the outside of the thumb and cleverly down the inside of the thumb using a section of horizontally mirrored charts.

These mittens are knit in the round, beginning with a ribbed cuff. The rest of the mitt is worked in a stranded two-colour zigzag pattern. Thumb gussets ensure a great fit, and side marking stitches eliminate the jog that occurs when knitting stranded colourwork in the round.

Stranded colourwork patterns are relatively dense. As a result, these mittens are worn with less negative ease than plain knitted mittens. Be sure to select a size based on the sizing information given on this page.

Red Cliff colourwork pattern is charted only (no written instructions).
