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.

264 Neckdown Cardigan for Men

Soucy: "A comfortable cardigan for men with a warm shawl collar and zip front. Has directions for optional jacket type collar and a button band. Written for heavy worsted yarn at a gauge of 16 stitches to 4 inches. Men's sizes small to xx large."

Soucy thoughtfully includes directions for custom adjustments to both body and sleeve for small or tall men.

To create a similar jacket for Daddy's little girl or boy, look at this from Soucy: Children's Bulky Neck Down Jacket.

Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.

Hello Lurker321,
I'm sorry that you had a problem with the pattern, but the number of stitches to pick up for the neck is correct. It has been knitted hundreds of times with those numbers.

There is a mistake in this pattern. For the collar, the number of stitches to pick up and knit on the fron neck edge is doubled.
