When I was a child, my parents grew boysenberry vines in our backyard. I remember it was along the back fence, and my dad built a lattice support so the vines could spread out, crawl and wrap around the wood and wires. When the weather became warmer, the boysenberries grew and multiplied. My mom used to send my sister and me to the backyard with containers to pick the berries, and she would make the best boysenberry pies! I have yet to taste pies as juicy and sweet as these! My inspiration for the Berrylicious Fun came from this childhood memory.
Berrylicious Fun is a top-down triangular shawl using a main color for the background and mini-skeins for the textured berry stripes. This shawl can be customized to use any number of mini-skeins or is a great stash buster to use up left over balls of yarn from previous projects!
