Today we welcome Pauliina Karru to the blog to share her process creating the Bilberry accessory set.
Knitting and living in Helsinki, Finland. I design patterns, tech edit and otherwise help other woolly people. My aim is to help knitters find joy in every stitch.
My inspiration for Bilberry came from a walk in the winter forest. The bare tree trunks against a snowy landscape encouraged me to make a beautiful set of accessories. I played around with thick cables, swatching until I found one that reminded me of thick knobbly trees and paired it with a stockinette column that’s like a smoother, thinner tree.
I wanted to use a heavier yarn weight to match the intended season and create a warm and cozy set. The Bilberry set also knits up quite quickly thanks to the Aran weight yarn and an interesting yet easy cable pattern. The result: a set of accessories that are just what one needs for the winter!
I always imagined this set to be worn when going sledding, commuting to work on chilly mornings, or on walks through the forest.
