Frostberry £4.75

A hat and mitten set full of berries knitted in the round from the top down and finished with a sideways cabled brim.

Frostberry bushes grow low to the ground in tundra landscapes. The small blue frostberries can be harvested in late summer and have a sharp and slightly sweet taste. They can be used to make preserves and desserts, or a sauce for game.

Frostberry hat and mittens are patterns from the Winter Blooms book.
