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.

3945 Cardigans (birth to 6 years)

When you are past the rank beginner stage, but not yet ready for expert-level laceweight extravaganzas, these will be your little girl cardis of choice. They're all kinds of fun to work, with something of interest going on almost all the time, and yet nothing really hard ever happens. The backs are a combination of the flower lace and garter ridgy pattern, like the fronts. If you choose the multicolour version, you can thriftily use up odd balls and oddments, but the solid version is stunning as well. Lazy Daisy and Bullion embroidery stitches are illustrated. A similar design theme in a 4 ply weight is available here.
