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.

Waves of Lace

A cool, lacy shell, knit in a linen-silk yarn, is perfect beach wear. Over a bikini, over a tank top, or over a T-shirt. The frothy, wave-like stitch pattern echoes the gently rolling waves along the shore.

Knit in a satisfying, easy-to-memorize pattern, the shell is self-finishing. After knitting and blocking, there is nothing more to do but to sew the side seams. And you are ready for the beach!

The matching scarf can be worn on its own or as part of the ensemble.
