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.

1292 Lacy Cardigan

This is a fantastic kind of garment. Intensely feminine, flattering, dramatic but simple. The 'skirt' is flared, narrowing towards the waist; the sleeves beautifully set in (not for Italian designers, the drop shoulder on a woman, thanks very much). It seems a real Renaissance piece, with that power and sweep. Luckily the lace pattern is eye-rollingly easy (4 rows, 2 of which are knitted plain), and the garter front bands are worked of a piece with the body (and extended a bit, then sewn down to finish the back neck). Yarn is a classic DK weight worked large.
