The Design

"Sweet summer accessory."

Beloved by pie makers, reviled by gardeners, the common blackberry is considered both a blessing and a curse on Bainbridge Island. But knitters love the plump texture named for this bobbly berry. Opened up in a lightweight yarn, blackberry stitch (also known as trinity stitch) makes dainty, lacy clusters. Plus, it’s handsome on the wrong side, too.

Knit in a cool plant fiber, like Shibui Reed, this scarf becomes a sweet, summer accessory. Reed is 100% linen, but it lacks the crispness of most linen yarns—thanks to its smooth, chainette construction. It’s pliable, sleek, and has a graceful drape that shows up wonderfully in this lacy scarf.

Click on the ‘Free Pattern’ tab to view the pattern, and pick a color of Reed below. You need one skein for a small Blackberry Kerchief (shown here in ‘Imperial’) and two skeins for a larger Blackberry Scarf (shown here in ‘Riviera.’)
