I am enormously grateful to the many pattern selling sites that I use. They work tirelessly to provide access to many thousands of knitting patterns from Indie designers such as myself. Unfortunately, as we all know some sites such as Ravelry and LoveKnitting prove successful and go from strength to strength, while others change direction or fail.
Only recently, Craftsy changed its focus from patterns to classes and adopted a new name, Bluprint. Many thousands of indie patterns were removed from their offering and I know that has caused some concerns with knitters who have struggled to find old links and pattern purchases.
However, the latest casualty in the knitting world is the news that Patternfish is closing its site. It will stop selling patterns at the end of May and close its site permanently at the end of June. This means that you will no longer be able to download any patterns you have purchased from the site or get automatic updates.
So, please go now and download your patterns so the current version is stored safely away somewhere and let me know if you have any problems with this. Also, sign up to my Newsletter for news of any pattern updates.
You can also check my Pattern Update and Errata page to make sure you are using the latest version of your pattern and please let me know if you wish to update your pattern at any time in the future.
Please check my website for all my patterns and for the latest photos, updates and news.
Thank you Patternfish for all you've done over the years. It was a pleasure working with you.
