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.

Dale Garn (formerly Dale of Norway)


Sirdal (6 - 24 months)

A classic Dale of Norway design is like Chanel No. 5: you either get it or you don't. Fortunately most knitters have wonderful taste, and gasp at the sight of something like this Sirdal set. This is ethnic baby couture at its height, with traditional elements-- the contrasting facings (see the photo revealing the inside of the neck and buttonbands), the steeks for the front opening and armholes (yes, you have to cut your knitting), and the sheer great looks that transcend time. The cardi is mostly worked in the round, except at the neck; hat is knitted circularly. Drop-shouldered, with hems throughout and buttoned cuffs.
