FKD-BBS Blackberry Blossom Scarf

Blackberry Blossom is the 9th design from the Shades of Green Knitting Collection.

This scarf starts with the longest row. Yes, this means an insane cast on, but look on the bright side, every row after that is getting shorter! However, to top off the length, I must also point out that it’s a beaded cast on. Double whammy right there. Another bright spot is that you can use the beads to your advantage. If you are careful to string the correct number of beads then you will not have to count stitches as you cast on. Instead, you will simply keep casting on until you slide the last bead into place and cast on 2 more stitches. So find a comfortable, well-lit spot where nobody will disturb you and get to work!

Blackberry Blossom is a cross between a shawlette, a scarf, and a cowl. It has the pointed back traditional to a shawlette, but it is not a fully closed triangle. Two “arms” extend to allow you to tie the scarf in a knot. Small buttons are sewn down entire length of inner edges to allow you to wrap the scarf around your neck and button in place to form a type of cowl. Experiment with different ways to wear Blackberry Blossom for your own unique style.
