To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 15 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

256 Basic Vest for Children

Soucy: "A pullover vest for children, written for worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 18 stitches to 4 inches. Worked bottom up in the round to the armholes, then front and back are worked separately to the shoulders, which are bound off together. Great for girls or boys! Sizes 2, 4, 6, and 8. Yarn shown is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted."

(All this means no sewing, of course, and this lovely simple design works with absolutely any style of yarn that meets gauge-- Ed.)
