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.

JCA Crafts


FW2005-10 Boyfriend Sweater

This must be a 'boyfriend sweater' in shape only, since few boyfriends we know wear fluffy nylon blends (though Walt Disney was photographed in the 30's wearing a handsome brushed mohair vest). It's the shape and scale that matter here. This is a tunic-length, seductively V-necked sweater with set-in sleeves and no other shaping. The customary gorgeous JCA Crafts detail is almost all in the full-fashioning this time; all decreases are worked well in from the edges. And there's a wee extra bit of ribbing to finish the neck. Otherwise, no other secret features. All the glory's visible up front. Original yarn was 51% wool, 49% nylon, 53 yards/48.5 metres to 50g.
