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.

1342 Drop Sleeve Cardigan

This garment is a delightful hybrid of two sensibilities-- American and Italian. The American heritage stems from all the straight lines in the silhouette: it's a drop shoulder with flat sleeve tops, and the back neck and waist and shoulders are all unshaped. The Italian notes are the yarn (pure luxury, 80% extrafine merino and 20% angora, worked doubled for extra cush) and the ribbing treatment. This last varies, from the deep 2 x 2 at the cuffs, hem, and neckline, to the conservative-- prim, even-- buttonbands in a 1 x 1 rib, knitted separately and then sewn on. But all the plainness is utterly contradicted by the fabric.
