A lovely big huggable shawl. I made the sample in Rowan Cocoon and it is so snug, great for keeping the chill off on cold winter nights or outdoors on spring evenings. It is named after the colour of the yarn - Bilberry; the eyelets made me think of the berries and it all fell into place. This pattern is relatively easy, so it is suitable for a beginner knitter. Increases are by yarn overs, the body has sections of eyelets made by yarn overs and the edging is a simple picot cast off. It is an easy lace design. Being bulky yarn it makes up really quickly. This is also available in the pattern collection - The Berry Shawl Collection, available here on Craftsy. Also available in a DK version - Blueberry Shawl, and a sock weight version - Winberry Shawl - here on Craftsy.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
