The Design

"Dainty, lacy clusters."

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 of the stitch named for this bobbly berry. Opened up in a lace-weight yarn, blackberry stitch (also known as trinity stitch) makes dainty, lacy clusters. Plus, it’s handsome on the wrong side, too.

For this pretty kerchief, we picked lace-weight Rowan Kidsilk Haze—a favorite go-to in the shop. It’s delicate and fine with a lovely halo that gives a subtle fuzz to those little stitch clusters. Strong but sheer, weightless but warm—perfect for an airy kerchief.
