How To Knit: Raspberry Stitch

The Raspberry Stitch (also known as the Blackberry or Trinity Stitch) will help add some seriously beautiful texture to your next knit project! The Raspberry Stitch is created by repeating 4 stitches among 4 rows. With the raspberry stitch, your work will have a nice, almost quilt like pattern. Looking at a finished project with Raspberry Stitching makes it look like the stitch is incredibly difficult, but there is a great rhythm behind this stitch that will make it easy once you get the hang of it! 

P.S. We added a little bonus here to help you create clean edges using a chain edge

We used a Raspberry Stitch to create this Raspberry Dreams Baby Blanket out of our Variegated Thick + Thin Wool Yarn

Tips for trying this stitch: 
1. Start on the wrong side of your project
2. To get clean edges on both sides, slip the first stitch knitwise, then purl the last stitch (for every row!) 
3. The right side is a little easier to work on - all the stitches here will be purled! 

4. Sometimes it can be tricky to purl 3 stitches, especially with thicker yarn. Don't get discouraged! You'll get the hang of it
