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.

ML126 Take A Ribbing

Cranley: "Although we knit our sample garment in four colors, there is enough texture to go around in this men's sweater to make it look terrific knit in just one color. K1, p1 ribbing starts off the lower edges, giving way to a slip stitch rib, followed by a well-placed raised border that introduces the mock cable stitch and continues to the shoulders. The sleeves knit in plain stocking (stockinette) stitch create a nice foil to the 'foreknitted' texture.

"Comfort abounds with a drop shoulder and a three-button closing at the neck. Choose a yarn that gives great definition and let the texture shine on this one. In cotton or wool, it should surely please either the lucky man you have chosen to knit for, or the clever man who has chosen to knit for himself."
