This is the double knit version of the original Bilberry Shawl. I had several requests for a dk version and a fingering weight version (Winberry). It is set up differently and has different rows which maintain the design but give it a good size. The sample is made using Debbie Bliss Andes which gives it a lovely drape. I chose a deep blue colour and did not realise until I looked up the code that it is called Blueberry (code no 18), so a very apt name! 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. This is also available as part of the pattern collection - The Berry Shawl Collection, available here on Craftsy. Please note that the price of this pattern will increase to $5 on 1st September, to be consistent with prices on other wesbites.

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.
