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.

Alamosa Mitts

"These soft alpaca mitts are a simple and elegant project," says Blanchard. "They are colorful yet quick to knit and would make a wonderful last-minute handknit gift. They are knit from the cuff to the tip and the beginning of the row is at the outside of the hands so any color pattern jogs are less noticeable." The thumb is a simple peasant version (i.e., basically just a slit in the fabric, with no base-of-thumb gusset). This is a delicious introduction to working with alpaca in the round (since it is much less elastic then wool, it's almost a special discipline), and the resulting mitts are wonderfully soft and lovely.
