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.

Swinging the Blues

"I-cord piping adds definitive punch to this flattering short take on a swing coat, to work up quickly in a heavy worsted yarn," says de Longpre. "Not feeling especially blue? Make it in your favorite color!" We were struck when we saw this-- we thought it was a rare Chanel swing jacket, but then it really is that style, isn't it? So much friendlier than a really fitted one, yet still poised and polished. Shoulders are shaped with short rows, and the I-cord piping detail around the armhole just knocks us out. 4" ease is recommended, so if your bust is 46", then make the 50" size.
