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.

Diane Soucy

for Knitting Pure and Simple

216 Beginners Lightweight Sock (Cuff Down)

"A plain basic sock," says Soucy, "written for beginning sock knitters. Knitted from the top to toe, with a bit of rib at the top and a plain heel. Uses fingering weight yarn and a set of 4 double point needles. Many beginning knitters can knit these socks with no help. Sized for men and women." Soucy eschews grafting for these, which will perhaps delight the sock newbie-- the toes are decreased in standard wedge fashion and then the stitches are just gathered together. She provides a valuable illustrated tip to find your best personal sock length, too.
