Berry Stitch Pattern is a textured pattern that creates a field of small little berries. There are plenty of increases and decreases with little berries connected vertically with delicate stems.
This pattern uses a stitch, kfbfb, that is new and different from our usual collection of stitches in the series. Kfbfb increases the number of stitches by knitting the same stitch four times. It essentially means knit into front, back, front and back of next stitch. So, if you started with one stitch, after kfbfb, you’ll end up with four stitches.
Berry Stitch Pattern will be excellent for projects requiring a bit of a texture such as cushions or pillow covers.
