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.

50006 Sweetheart Purse

"Perfect for any little girl, this heart-shaped purse is fashioned using both a mitered square technique and short rows," says Hayes. "It was inspired by a piece designed by the inimitable Elizabeth Zimmerman." We don't see why this beauty has to be restricted to little girls; we would happily carry this anywhere on a summer day or evening. In fact... why not wear two or three of them at a time, in different colors, assigned to different carrying tasks? It would be a heart bouquet. Short rows help shape the piece. First appeared in Cast On magazine.
