I am so honored to have been asked to create a block for this mystery CAL. Thank you Crochet Memories and The Country Willow for the invite!!
Today I am going to share with you my block. It is called Berry Stitch block. I will be showing you a new stitch!! This block is worked in rows and is easy enough for a beginner to make. The Berry Stitch creates a nice texture and there are oodles of things that you can do with this stitch pattern. This stitch patterns uses any even chain multiple.
The next block to be released is designed by Anastacia Knit Designs. I can't wait to see what she is designing for this Mystery CAL.
To begin, gather your supplies and let's get hookin'! You will need: Small amount of #4 worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Supersaver.
I/9/5.5 mm crochet hook Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Stitches used to make this block are
Single Crochet (sc)
Berry Stitch (Bst) ~ to make Bst: Insert hook into specified sc, draw up a loop, leaving loop on hook, ch 3 more stitches, draw yarn through both loops on hook, Berry Stitch (Bst) made.
I used two different colors to make my blocks to show the stitch pattern a little better, if you use two colors there is no need to cut your yarn for every color change. Just carry your yarn up the side of the block. This will be covered up when you do your joining.
With I hook and desired color make a chain of 21.***
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining chain. Chain 1, turn (20 sc)
Row 2: Sc in first sc; *Bst in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * across, ch 1, turn. At the end of this row you will sc in the last 2 stitches (9 Bst, 11 sc)
Row 3: Sc in each stitch across. (20 sc) chain 1, turn.
Row 4: Bst in first sc, sc in next sc; *Bst in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * across to last sc, sc in last stitch, ch 1, turn. (10 Bst, 10 sc)
