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.

Staked Socks (Cuff Down)

Life’s rough when you’re a vampire slayer. One minute you’re falling in love or contemplating your destiny…the next minute you’re stalking off into the shadows and figuring out how to wash vampire dust out of your clothes. With a day job like that, you’d better at least be heading out in style. These socks have you covered: stabby, stake-through-the-heart cables extending from the leg and onto the foot, eventually diminishing and disappearing altogether, with only darkness and plain stockinette left behind. Stake, or be staked. It’s all in a day’s work.

Works twisted stitch cables and includes directions on working cables without a cable needle.

Patterns are fully charted. Also includes suggested modification on how to work without the "swoosh" across the instep, but rather to work the cables continuously down the leg.
