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

981 Children's Neckdown Cardigan (Top Down, ages 2 - 12)

"This popular basic cardigan is one you can make for years, with many different yarns," says Soucy. "Shown with the hood option, it can also have a crew neck or a jacket collar and can close with a zipper or buttons. Written at a gauge of 4 stitches to the inch for heavy worsted weight yarn. Sizes 2-4, 6-8, 10-12." A winning classic, great fun to knit, with traditional 1 x 1 rib at hem and cuffs and garter stitch edging the front of the hood and front bands. Cast off the sides of the hood together using a three-needle bind off, or graft them, and there's no sewing at all.
