Rasp-ber-ry (noun): An edible soft fruit consisting of a cluster of reddish-pink drupelets. (aka: the best fruit ever.) Raspberry & blackberry free crochet pattern (noun): a free crochet pattern of said clustered, delicious fruit.
The best part of July is when my raspberries come on. I LOVE raspberries. Everything about them. I love their shockingly bright purply red blush, their pungent, tangy-sweet perfume, their fragile, delicate skin; and I especially love the juicy berry explosion that takes place in my mouth when I eat them straight off the cane after being warmed by the sun all day.
My salivary glands are active even now as I type.
I’m talking of home-grown raspberries of course. I have yet to have such an invigorating encounter with a raspberry purchased from a “big-box” grocer. I will not lose hope, however, due to the unfortunately short harvest season of this most delectable fruit.
Part of the home-grown experience of course, is the picking of the fruit. I love the moments spent in the raspberry patch, normally occurring in the early evening – warm, quiet and peaceful. I chat with the other critters who also love my patch – spiders, flies, ants, and birds. They scurry around as I gather the berries into my colander. Nowadays, my precious son joins me as we embark on the treasure hunt for the perfect dark red raspberry.
So, in celebration of the best part of July, I give you my raspberry & blackberry free crochet pattern. You can find the ad-free, printable pattern in the resource library here.

You’ll have to forgive me because although this pattern is also for blackberries I do not have the same affection for them. They are here by default. Sorry blackberry.
The special thing about this pattern is that I provide the method for crocheting the berries in 3 different ways: the drupelet without the stem (as if picked straight off the bush), the drupelet with the stem attached, and clusters of 3 berries still on the stem with leaves. Pick one or make them all, it’s up t you! The raspberry and blackberry free crochet pattern download is yours now and forever.
