About Baneberry

Baneberry (Actaea Spicata) is a flowering perennial plant native to Europe and Western Asia. It is relative of the buttercups, same as Anemone Hepatica, yesterday’s design.

The plant has toothed compound leaves, long and wide. The flowers bloom in erect racemes and have 4-6 white sepals which turn into black berries in the autumn. These berries are highly poisonous, so be aware. Even though they do no harm the birds, to humans they are deadly.

    I have one of your patterns that requires a clone knot but no description on how to make it. What is a clone knot? How do you make it?
