The Berry Stitch
The Berry Stitch creates a stunning bobbled appearance using variations on Knit & Purl stitches.
The stitch creates this bobbled, raised texture by using a combination of increases and decreases on alternating rows. The right-side rows using a (knit 1, knit 1 through the back loop, knit one) in the same stitch, to create a two stitch increase, and using a purl three together in the wrong side rows to decrease.
The Berry Stitch is similar in appearance to the Trinity (US) or Bramble (UK) Stitch, but has a subtly different look to it.
The stitch, in my opinion, is best used for smaller knitting projects such as purses or hats, as I feel a large swathe of fabric knitted in this pattern may be a bit overwhelming. However, as ever, this is done to personal taste so feel free to prove me wrong!
