Cloudberry is a two-part pattern, a smaller scarf pattern that uses just one hank of the featured yarn, or the larger shawl pattern that uses two hanks of that same yarn. The interior panel is made with a 6-row repeat that allows for easy adjustment of the length. The gorgeous berry and mesh lace is bordered by double crochets which makes finishing a breeze.
The scarf is made on a short edge and you crochet until you have the desired length. The shawl has a bit of a twist – 90 degrees actually. Work the shawl on the long edge – this means more stitches on the row, but fewer rows to make. Changing the direction of the lace gives a different look, and more options to make our project unique.
Cloudberries are a type of berry that is native to the PNW. Also known as Salmonberry, I can remember seeing these all over the hiking trails in the northwestern part of Washington state. This pattern brought back some really cool memories of hiking with my children when they were younger.
This pattern is written in US terminology.
Cloudberry was designed in Juniper Moon Farms Moonshine Fine. I recommend using any fingering weight yarn that has a good drape to it.
Techniques and Difficulty
Cloudberry incorporates the following crochet techniques:
- Basic stitches (chain, single and double crochet)
Cloudberry is a rectangular shawl that is worked on the long edge or a scarf that is worked on the short edge. This allows you to create the main field and the edging all at the same time.
You can adjust the length of Cloudberry by adding or removing any quantity of the 6-row repeat. You can adjust the width by adding or removing any quantity of the 12 stitch repeat.
