Scattered Rosehips

$0.00

The Scattered Rosehips pattern was designed by Helen Gipson. Our sample was knit in Miss Babs Big Silk in the Catherine colorway.

This design was originally inspired by happy childhood memories of brambling (picking blackberries) down country lanes with my mother and sister as a child, and followed by the making of bramble and apple jelly. However, the little detail bobbles look more like rosehips to me, which I also gather in the autumn to make syrup.

This is a fun shawl to knit with just enough going on. The bobbles lie flatter than cabled bobbles, looking more like nupps but are so much easier to make. You may scatter the rosehips as per the sample or however you think looks good - the ‘rosehip’ sizes and positions are not critical and do not need to be rigidly adhered to.

You'll need one skein of Big Silk to complete this project. Choose the original colorway below − or try another color!

You can purchase the pattern for Scattered Rosehips directly from the designer on Ravelry. All patterns are sold separately and not included with the purchase of yarn.
