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.

ZigBagZ Maxi Collection

There are two related patterns, the MaxiBagZ and MiniBagZ. MaxiBagZ includes:

- BiggieZig: Manageable carry-all.
- BurlyZig: A hefty project bag for creative folks.

Knit in the round, in stranded colorwork. Use only two yarns per row in a masterful method which looks much fancier than it is.

The colorwork presents significant depth by alternating two sets of solid/striping yarns, one set when the pattern "zigs" to the left, and the other set when it "zags" to the right.

These bags have been a hit at every gathering they have graced, from the east coast to the midwest and Texas. Join the fun and make a bag you will use faithfully for years.
