berrypicking is almost a mandatory summer activity in canada. blackberries and blueberries and saskatoons are all delicious, but there’s just something about the tartness of a raspberry. this shawl is knit top-down with a berry-esque lace stitch, and edged off along one side with a leaf border for some asymmetrical interest. wear it in the colder months to remind yourself of warm summer days.
