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.

2010-02 Puffy Vest With Hood

"I have a soft spot for chunky-weight mohair, but it's a difficult fibre to design with. It knits up big and puffy, and the resulting garments can be suffocatingly warm.

"This reinterpretation of the hoodie vest harnesses these challenging properties of the mohair and uses them to great effect. The puffiness is what makes this a fun and attractive style. It's sleeveless so it knits up quickly and uses little yarn; this feature also ensures that you don't overheat.

"It's designed to be worn fairly fitted and cropped, to keep it flattering. Choose a size as close as possible to your actual bust measurement."
