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.

Now and Then Armlets or Fingerless Gloves

Says McKay about the armlets: "My grandmother's 1915 knitting book came with the 'official directions' for War Relief Work. The armlet was designed and knit by wives, girl friends, sisters & mothers for their young men serving in World War I. The original pattern boasts 'They have stood the practical test of actual use'. These armlets are just as practical and cozy now for warm hands and finger freedom." For the glove: "... made with K2, P2 rib for the cuff and it continues the rib onto the top of the hand along with a simple cable. The palm and fingers are worked in Stockinette stitch." Simple, beautiful, worthy.
