To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 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.

Chippy Socks for Kids (Cuff Down, birth to age 4)

These ColorJoy-ful socks by LynnH were inspired by a color-loving toddler friend who loved her footwear so much she would not take them off! When she received a set of six Chippy socks, her response was: "These are my favorite!" Why are they called Chippy? Like potato chips, you can not stop knitting at one pair!

These are a quick knit in DK-weight yarn, and the colorwork keeps you fascinated. The patterns are easily memorized, and the knitting just speeds right on by. Three colors of yarn can be combined in infinite ways with seven leg charts and six foot striping patterns. Much fun, more color! (Coordinating Chipper Caps can be found here.)

This design appears along with 10 others in the splendid book Shake It Up Sock Collection for only $19.50. Save a bundle by buying the book (which is actually a collection of the 11 PDFs).
