The Even Berry Stitch is a crochet stitch popping with texture! The pattern creates a thick and solid fabric.
The Even Berry Stitch is a fun stitch to work. It has a similar look to a bobble stitch but is made with a slight variation.
In between each row of berry stitches is a row of single crochet stitches. Both the single crochet stitches and the berry stitches alternate in their rows with slip stitches.
Be sure to check out the video tutorial below!
How to use this Stitch:
Have you seen this stitch used in any designs (You can let me know in the comments below)?
I love the thickness of the final result. Because it is so thick it would work great as a pot holder or hot pad. I believe it would also look neat in a throw cushion design.
Or you can alternate rows of berry stitches with another stitch pattern to add a fun pop of texture to your crochet blankets, garments and market bags!
For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 6 mm crochet hook. The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
Even Berry Stitch:
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. At the end of each row you will need to chain 1 and turn your work.
Don’t forget to check out the free video tutorial linked below!
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you can use any even number of stitches (multiples of 2) for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 20 chain stitches.
Single crochet in the second chain from your hook and in each stitch across. Chain one and turn your work.
Slip stitch into the first stitch, work one berry stitch into the next stitch.
To work your berry stitch, yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through. Yarn over and draw through one loop on your hook. Yarn over and insert your hook into the same stitch, yarn over and draw a loop through. You will have five loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw a loop through all five stitches.
Slip stitch into the next stitch, berry stitch into the next stitch.
Repeat this all the way across working a slip stitch into your final stitch. Chain one and turn your work.
Single crochet into the first stitch, slip stitch into the top of the next berry stitch. Repeat all the way across working a single crochet stitch into your final stitch. Chain one and turn your work.
Slip stitch into your first stitch, berry stitch into the next stitch. Repeat all the way across ending with a slip stitch in the final stitch. Chain one and turn your work.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern you will repeat rows three and four.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you again next week! (I add a new crochet stitch tutorial every Sunday 🙂 )
