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.

4505 Long Live The Scraps

Wasting or throwing away yarn-- no way!! It’s impossible to picture even the smallest amount of yarn in a trash can. Let’s help these neglected scraps, leftovers or single skeins to new glory and purpose.

This is a recipe for a blanket which is worked in strips. They are knitted together as you go. No sewing! Use any weight of yarn or stitch pattern and create an heirloom.

(This is really a universal recipe, given in satisfying detail, about how to construct a blanket/afghan/whatever using your gauge, to the size you specify, in stitch patterns you like. Enormously empowering and thrifty, too!-- Ed.)
