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   2008

286 Bulky Shrug (Top Down)

"This fast-to-knit shrug is made with super bulky yarn at a gauge of 10 sts to 4 inches on huge needles," says Soucy. "Knitted from the top down, it avoids those bulky seams, and closes with one pretty button. The yarn shown is Kraemer Yarns Bear Creek. Sizes x-small through x-large." This very stylish top goes with everything, and Soucy's point about no seams in such a thick yarn is an excellent one; there's no extra thicknesses at the raglan seamlines, which contributes svelteness to the overall flattery.
