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.

2268 Cardigan & Waistcoat (2 - 13 years)

This is a mini, big-collarless version of this grownup jacket, and so the grownup description mostly applies: If there's a jacket (or vest!) out there that's faster to make, really easy to knit, and more chic to wear, we don't know of it. The shoulders/sleeve tops are a fascinating hybrid. Armholes are unshaped, sleeves have a soft cap-- but the shoulders are so decidedly sloped that, in effect, the shoulder overhang forms the sleeve top. This gives marvellous roominess over other garments when worn. All instructions are written out in full, so it sounds just like a knitting coach is talking you through it.
