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.

Perfect Hug Shawl

"If you need a shawl that does not fall off your shoulders, this design in three variations stays put because it is shaped like a rainbow," offers Hershberger. "There is even a Goddess-sized version for up to size 5X." A wonderfully friendly, detailed, valuable pattern for which yarn choices abound (be sure and read the data pages for more suggestions, and much amusement). Hershberger points out that this design "also works for someone in a wheelchair"-- and anyone who knows the wheelchair-bound also knows that they are underserved by knitwear.
