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.

Lucy Neatby


#345 Timberline Toes

"A simple top-down sock with an optional Tubular Cast On and Garter Stitch Short-row heel," says Neatby. We confess that this sock (from Neatby's seminal book Cool Socks Warm Feet) changed our knitting lives. Now we understand the virtues of the garter stitch heel and we make all our sock heels with not 50% of the original stitches, but the percentage she recommends, and are much the better for it. There are basic sock patterns by the bucketload. This one, with 10 (ten!) given sizes for a 7.5" ankle on up, and lots of drawings and detailed Neatby refinements-- read the data pages-- is uniquely valuable.
