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.

Jil Eaton

for Jil Eaton/ Minnowknits   c.2001


Just about the sweetest, dearest, simplest little summer sundress (or winter jumper) imaginable. It's a dapper little double-breasted affair, creating a crossover V effect with two buttons for embellishment: one is functional with its own buttonhole, the other just for balance. The skirt is knitted in the round, then split for the back and fronts. Shoulders are cast off together, which minimizes finishing. Original yarn unknown; Eaton recommends her super soft MinnowMerino for this design.
