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.

Chris de Longpre

for Knitting at KNoon   2006

Safari Friends

"Huggable, tote-able, adorable stuffed friends just the right size for your favorite tot," says de Longpre. "Pattern includes all four friends (each with his Swahili name): Tembo (elephant), Simba (lion), Punda milia (zebra), and Twiga (giraffe), to make in natural or whimsical colors like ours." Which child in which book kept seeing a "'maginary lion", meaning 'menagerie lion'? Now children can have their own menagerie, as imaginative and unfettered as they are. We shudder to think at the trial and error that went into this extraordinary pattern, but are very grateful for the outcome. One of a series of stuffed toy patterns from Chris de Longpre. The others are Snobuddy Family, Take Me To Your Leader, Feathers, and Prehistoric Pals.
