The Berry Shawl was inspired by hot summers and the lush berries with ice cream that have their season in summer. The little pops of raspberries, the marbling of a good ice cream, all knitted into a lovely shawl with lace and colorful stripes.
The shawl is worked by alternating lace and solid stripes, to give the whole shawl a nice way to keep the brain engaged while still being intuitive enough to make it a shawl you can knit while relaxing on a holiday.
