Yikesberry - silk and linen

Yikesberry

This silk berry just pops with fun color! Purple Majesty floss provides a vivid background stitched in a checkerboard pattern to add wonderful texture. It's topped with a few bright lime green wool leaves and a bit of twisted cord.

The linen berry version, stitched on hot purple "Jewel" linen has the same fun look – just a larger version. A bit of black wool, a stack of black buttons and a bit of green ribbon finish it off. A fun addition to your Halloween collection!

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, Yikesberry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
