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.

Bon Bons

Perhaps you are a very new knitter who has learned to knit and purl. Or an expert looking for a rest. Make these hats! They're playful, versatile, fun, and are a very good introduction to both intarsia-- for the dots-- and plain st st. They're knit flat and then seamed, so you can practice just on the knitting (and not managing double-pointed needles, or DPN's). They offer a lot of scope for expressing personality through colour-- your own or the child's-- and you can embellish the dots by sewing buttons in their centres, if you like. Original yarn unknown; try Eaton's own.
