Do you like puff stitches? If you do, you’re going to love the berry stitch!
This stitch is a better (in my opinion at least 🙂 ) and a bit more advanced version of the puff stitch, it creates a rounder and more tight puff stitch.
You can use this crochet stitch in a regular-classic way, this stitch will add a beautiful texture for blankets or potholders.
You can find a tutorial on how to crochet the berry stitch in the classic way HERE.

Have you ever thought of using the crochet berry stitch as edging?

I came across the Berry stitch when I was working on my Pearls of the Sea Clutch pattern.
I used round shells for the bag’s cover and was looking to add some kind of bobbles at the edge of the shells. Trying to get the effect I was looking for, I started with small puff stitches but wasn’t satisfied with the result, it looked too “loose” and not round enough.
When I tried the Berry stitch, I was so pleased with the result! It created little round bobbles that look like pearls, and this is where this pattern got its name 🙂
** The body of this clutch is made with the Alternating Spike Stitch, you can find the detailed tutorial for this stitch HERE

If you prefer, there’s a video tutorial at the end of the written instructions!

Important Note
When you are working this stitch, you are working on its wrong side.
So in case you are working flat (back and forth) – make sure to finish with the right side before working this edging.
And in case of working in the round – turn your work and work in the other direction.

    There’s no video. When you click the link at the beginning it pushes you down to the end of the written instructions where it says, “Video Tutorial,” but that’s just text only, there’s no actual link attached to it 🤷🏻‍♀️
