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

2007 Basic Cardigan Vest for Men

Soucy: "A simple vest for men, made in one piece to the armholes, with 2x2 ribbed edges. Great for the office to the golf course! Uses worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 18 sts to 4 inches in sizes small through xx-large." We are absolute suckers for men wearing these; they look so authoritative, but cuddly too. Glee fans will want to rock them for the Will Schuesters in their lives. This design looks great in any yarn (though the Tussock's tweedy bits have the wonderful property of not 'throwing' mostly to the purl side, as so many do, so that's a superb choice of yarn).
