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.

Bergere de France


167.13 Trapeze-Line Jacket

High fashion, meet ease of making. This is one of the most arrestingly popular Bergere de France patterns published in the last twenty years. Through reprint after reprint, knitters have discovered how sexy you can look (mostly) covered up by relatively simple knitting. Here everything is in the line, and who better to celebrate line in fashion than the French? The ultra-fully-fashioned raglan sleeves help; so does the blazoned rib on the upper arm. Sleeves are bracelet length and bell out below the elbow. Left front is worked "as given for right front, reversing the shaping and omitting the buttonhole". Front edges are non-curling in a 1 x 1 rib. Pattern scanned from B4-size paper (prints out fine on 8.5" x 11", but the pattern itself is a touch smaller than that). A plainer, longer, chunky-weight interpretation of this design is available here.
