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.

for Chris Bylsma Designs   2007


"Who says baby yarns have to be just for babies?" asks Bylsma. "Anyone who knows me will laugh when they see me using US4 needles, yet baby cottons are so fine and so lovely to touch I thought we all should have a chance to enjoy them. Use needles a little larger than expected and the result is a beautifully soft top that is a dream to wear. The elegant cable-like pattern is actually a very easy lace pattern that divides and gracefully wraps around the neck. Think tall, svelte, slim – this does it! As a bonus, no additional finishing is needed on the neckline edge. In addition to cotton, try this sweater in a luxurious merino, or cashmere or alpaca or your favorite sock yarn. Yum!"

Now Bylsma has brought us a larger-gauged, sleeved version of Solo, J'adore, as well as the long-sleeved cardigan version, April in Paris. (We are happy--ed.)
