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.

Diane Soucy

for Knitting Pure and Simple

294 Summer Open Cardigan (Top Down)

Soucy: "A nice coverup for dresses and tank tops, this fitted cardigan is open in the front (about a 3 inch gap) and is knitted on large needles with worsted weight yarn at a very loose gauge-- 14 sts to 4 inches. The edges are 2x2 rib.

"The finished measurements include a 3 to 4 inch gap in the front. If you would like the cardigan to have a larger gap, make a smaller size."

(This is a magnificent design, very simple and versatile, that would show beautifully in just about any yarn style imaginable-- Ed.)

This is Patternfish's Best Selling Cardigan of 2013.
