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.

Christiane Burkhard


7165 Patches Baby Sweater (birth to 1 year)

"The whole cardigan is worked in strips, which are knitted together as you go," explains Burkhard. "Using a self-patterning yarn like Opal Hundertwasser or similar sock yarn will create the unique patchwork look of the finished garment. This is a one skein project." Glorious, and certainly allows-- nay, encourages-- extensive use of oddments and scraps of all kinds.

A version for children ages 2 - 8 is available here.
