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.

1001 Drawstring Purse with Beads

"A drawstring purse accented with glass seed beads," says McLeod. "The purse is knitted in the round. Perfect for gift-giving or as a bridal party accessory." This is such an appealing design. It's pretty without being overelaborate, and is a little project with touches of lots of different things-- the beads, the eyelets for the drawstring, the I-cord drawstring itself. And the beads are used very judiciously-- 96 for the body of the purse, 24 for the drawstring-- perfectly manageable numbers (you pre-string the beads in advance).
