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

211 Baby Tunic (6 months - 2 years)

Soucy: "A sweet baby pullover hoodie knitted from the top down in worsted weight yarn. Knits up fast in many different yarns, and is a popular baby gift! Many knitters omit the hood and add a ribbed collar." (This is incredibly easy since the garment starts at the neck anyway; the hood is picked up from there and worked after the fact.) Choices abound, making this charming little piece seasonless: make it in cotton, or wool, or even cashmere. Would look fabulous in variegates or hand-dyed yarns, too. The wee side vents allow for plenty of movement (and amply-cushioned bottoms). Popular demand led to the creation of the version for children aged 2 - 12, available here. And to top it all off, Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.
