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.

Making Waves Bags

"Classy felted cables make a statement in the boardroom, on an elegant divided briefcase, and at the boarding gate, on a generous carpet bag," says Bylsma. "Pack up the laptop, a lap full of knitting-- or your lap dog-- and go!" We have never seen felted bags in this shape before and are knocked out by them. There really is a divider in the briefcase! And the cabling is so beautiful! It could have been stamped in Florentine leather. The bags shown are worked in the Cascade 220 used doubled, so they're fast to make as well as gorgeous.
