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.

5840 Hats and Gloves (age 1 - adult man)

You could easily make an argument that if you only ever bought one hat/glove/mitten pattern, this should be it. First, the size range is incredible. Second, DK weight yarn (typically 22 sts to 4"/10cm on a US6/4mm needle) is one of the most common weights in the world. Third, all of these pieces are knit flat and seamed, for those who don't care (or aren't ready) for knitting in the round. Fourth, the sheer variety of styles-- everyone will find something to please them. Fifth, you only have to know how to knit and purl. One of the Mother Patterns from which others might be descended. Tension/gauge varies amongst the projects; first gauge is for hats, second for gloves/mitt.
