In the garden of both my parents and grandparents, we had many raspberry bushes. When I was little, I enjoyed playing hide and seek in my grandparents’ garden, full of berries and vegetables. The climbing beans and peas growing on their poles were especially suited to the task! And I loved their curling tendrils.
Nothings says summer more to me than raspberries. Pink and velvety. The Raspberry Bush cowl is a play of lines like vines, and diamonds like leaves and berries. The cowl is worked with a summer silk blend, thick enough to knit up quickly and add some flair to your evening outfit in no time. But feel free to use a thinner yarn. The cowl will look equally good!
