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.

K2.15 3 Button Vest

"This stylish vest knits up easily in a one-piece construction with minimal sewing," says Love. "Using two strands of sport weight yarn, the body is worked in a seed stitch for shape and texture. The 3-button closure and a K1, P1 rib help define the waist while the ever-so-slightly capped shoulder shaping and deep armholes give the vest balance and proportion. The edge is crocheted with a single strand slip stitch for a smooth finish. This is a V-neck classic that is sure to become a year-round standard." Note that the sport-weight yarn is used doubled for the body of the piece, and the gauge given reflects that.
