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.

for ColorJoy by LynnH   2002

Barberpole Socks (Cuff Down)

Hershberger: "Despite their complex looks, these knit up quickly due to DK weight yarn, short cuff and merely 20 rows of two-color knitting.

"It is a top down, textured sock using one solid and one contrasting solid, variegated or tweed yarn, with roomy cuff and snug foot. This sock also features the”LynnH No-Purl Heel!”

"The pattern is written in a conversational style, with text as well as chart instructions for the colorwork.

"This is a perfect pattern to introduce some color and joy into your life!"

This design appears along with 10 others in the splendid book Shake It Up Sock Collection for only $19.50. Save a bundle by buying the book (which is actually a collection of the 11 PDFs).
