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.

Tour de Sox (Toe Up)

"These socks were inspired by the 2008 Tour de France bicycle race," says Ehrlinger. "The various pattern elements are bike-related. They are knit toe-up with gusset and heel flap." There are beautiful big charts here for all the stitch patterns, and very helpful colour photographs at all the interesting stages of manufacture (gusset increases, heel patterning). You have the option of working a plain or patterned heel, and the toe starts with a neat circular trick. It's a very distinguished-looking sock, great for men or women.
