M.E Week 2012: Among the Hedgerows

We've had the 'fun' washcloth already this week, so here is the 'elegant' washcloth. 

Among the Hedgerows was inspired by the berries growing in the hedgerows near where I live The centre (teal part) is knitted in blackberry stitch, then you pick up and knit the edges in a thick rib. You don't have to use contrasting colours, you could knit it all in one colour or, you could even have each section of the border in a different colour. The main thing is that you have fun knitting it! 

I do not suggest you knit it while under the influence of "brain fog", as blackberry stitch is a little tricky to get the hang of at first.

You can download the pattern for free on Ravelry, but if you don't have a Ravelry account, don't despair! You can download the pattern straight onto your computer by clicking here.

I have provided this pattern for free, but please consider donating to, the largest children's charity with M.E/CFS. If you can't donate, don't worry! Just by adding your Among the Hedgerows Washcloth project onto Ravelry, you'll be spreading the word, thank you.
Tune in tomorrow for an exclusive interview with Jaz from Jasmine's Crafts and Being Jaz.

  1. I am a very big fan of this berry stitch and also knitted different things with it. Great idea to turn it into a cloth! Did you know it also looks marvelous as a lace pattern? Nope, I have to be honest: that wasn't my own idea.

    Have a nice weekend, dear. And don't forget to dress up in blue tomorrow ;-)

    Ciao, Fleur
