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.

Eira Wiechmann,
Cathy Payson

for Classic Elite Yarns   1999

823 Le Poisson

These are just great summer basics, and the fact that the original yarns are discontinued shouldn't matter one whit. Atmosphere was a pigtail cotton and accounts for the extra texture in Wiechmann's V (henley?) neck tee; Sand was a textured cotton boucle. You can play with combining Classic Elite's nubbly Pebbles with other of their yarns to get the look (and more critically, gauge), or just create your own. The V-neck comes in one size only (finished 49.5"), but the mock turtle comes in three.
