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.

Lucy Neatby


475 Fishtail Scarf

"Flared scarf ends give a dramatic appearance with a slender section to wrap cozily around your neck," says Neatby. "This design is a cousin to the Emperor's Scarf but requires no additional time to finish!" It's knitted widthwise in garter stitch, with the designer's astonishing imagination providing a netlike effect through increasing many times into a double YO, and lots of corresponding cast-offs. A marvel of engineering and full of intrigue for the knitter. No one will be able to tell you how you did it afterwards! The Spindrift Capelet, with a similar look, is available here too, as is The Emperor's New Scarf. Gauge given is over garter stitch.
