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.

Ilga Leja


Antique Lace

"A dowry find from the Victorian era, this silky, loose-fitting top can make you feel as though you belong to another, slower-paced era. Over a long-sleeved shirt, it serves as a vest. Over a halter top, it becomes the barest cover-up. It is equally beautiful knit in silk, in cotton, in linen, or in a fine-quality wool."
-- Ilga Leja

Leja suggests either sport or DK weight (8 ply) yarn could work for this exquisite design.
