Blackberry Kerchief Using Shibui Reed

Blackberry Kerchief Using Shibui Reed

"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 little kerchief 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 graceful—all qualities that emerge in the light, lovely drape of its knitted fabric.
