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.

GU420 Knit Ruana

"This beautiful ruana is shaped to stay on your shoulders whether you pin it or not," says Dempsey. "Great to wear out on the town or snuggle in at home. Knit from 'cuff to cuff' in garter stitch. Knit in worsted, chunky or superbulky weight yarn. It's one size: about 50-52" wide; 25-30" long from shoulder." This is not exactly the easiest ruana in the world, but it's very close. The little eyelet detail at the edges is the only 'demanding' element; and it's beautifully shaped to avoid overhang on your hands.
