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.

3 Lionel

This fun little lion has lots of character and a full-bodied mane that gives the shampoo models a run for their money. Knit almost entirely in the round with no seaming at all, he knits up quickly and requires little finishing. Details such as shaped foot and paw pads and a sassy little tail make this a fun and interesting project as well as a great gift for any kid or adult.

Techniques used in this pattern beyond knit and purl include increasing, decreasing, figure eight cast-on and a small amount of short rowing.

Pattern includes a pictorial for making the mane fringe.
