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.

Santa's Ho Ho Ho Vest

This charming vest looks equally well on girls and boys, and is quick to make for the holiday season. It's dapper and fun, beautifully tailored with a V neck and slightly cut-in, curved armholes. The back has a fair isle border (3 colours per row, but only four rows of it), and the intarsia Santas on the fronts are charted out separately for left and right sides, to mirror each other. Finlay writes a very thorough pattern, and has the wit to include a special instruction to use a faux fur for Santa's beards!
