In the late summer, wild blackberries ripen into dark purple sweetness. The best berries always seem to be guarded by thorns or just out of reach. The ridges in this pattern represent the challenges of berry picking while the berry motifs represent the rewards. This cowl is meant to show off a self-striping yarn however the textural quality of the pattern will also look good in a solid or tonal yarn. This pattern is suitable for a yarn that can be blocked to show off the lace patterning. This pattern contains both written and charted instructions as well as a blocking schematic. The lace patterning on this cowl occurs every row for 4 rows and then there are solid rows of purl or knit stitches in between each lace pattern set. Due to the nature of digital downloads, this pattern is nonrefundable, please ask any questions before purchase.

I've been doing all sorts of crafts for most of my life. I love the pattern and structure of mathematics and how mathematics is interwoven with design and nature. I am inspired by color. I think one of the reasons that I've always enjoyed art and design is that I enjoy thinking analytically and transferring that into an artistic interpretation. I enjoy taking what I know and creating my own interpretation. I hope you enjoy knitting my patterns as much as I have enjoyed designing them. My goal is to provide a clear and well-written pattern that includes all of the information that you need to get a great result. The project might be challenging but that should not include trying to figure out the pattern! You may always email me at
