To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 15 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.

LEDH-26 The Shorty Tam

"The shorty Tam is intended to be worn far back on the head-- an excellent hat for those with short hair or those who don't like the look of traditional hats," says Ellis. "Wearable year-round." We love how the variegations in the sock-weight yarn point up and stress the ridge pattern on the crown-- especially since you work in the round with two strands held together; you get the speed and instant gratification, but still keep the softness and seamlessness. A terrific travel project and gorgeous gift. First gauge is given with yarn doubled (to give a DK weight); second reflects the use of sock yarn.
