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.

Lucy Neatby


492 Bubbles Scarf

Perhaps only Neatby could email and say, "Look, there's been a leak," describe how news of this pattern's imminent release had gotten out, and ask if could we put it up right away so she wouldn't be besieged with requests. And indeed it is a joyous occasion of a scarf, full of inimitable Neatby touches like tubular cast-ons and cast-offs, extensive tips and tricks, great lengthy helpful explanations of everything you need to know, and tips on stuffing the bubbles (this is really Shibui, Neatby-style). "Straightforward negative/positive two-colour double-layer knitting, which gives stunning results," she sums up. "Everyone will want to know how you are creating this effect!" Superbly illustrated and diagrammed throughout, with separate directions for knitting the swatch (which has its very own chart). All this, and irresistible too! Gauge is given in double-knitting pattern over one side of the fabric (if both were measured, it would be 44 stitches to 4"/10cm). The Paintbox Scarf, a variation on this theme with regularly-placed squares, is available here.
