Scary Berry

Scary berry - silk and linen

Scary Berry

Lots of fun Halloween motifs are to be found in these berries – particularly the silk berry with its greater detail. A forlorn old house, gnarly trees and the graveyard, plus the required jack-o-lanterns, witch, ghosts, and more!

Both berries are topped with wool and assorted spooky embellishments.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Scary Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
