Even Berry Stitch (Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL 2021 – Part 9)

March 5, 2021

This week’s stitch is the Even Berry Stitch! This stitch uses the super cute Berry stitch. I love using this stitch as an accent or added texture to a sweater, scarf or beanie.

Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares. The long end is approximately twice the length of one side.

· Each square does not need the same number of stitches for the border.

  1. I am going to blame everything on covid. I a follower of yours and love the new patterns. Some of your patterns exactly what I need — a challenge and some I don’t need0–a challenge. I do not have all the pattern copied for later use. Is there a way I can catch up.

  2. Thank you Breann! I look forward to see what fun you have for us on Fridays! You choose stitches that are every range of talent. The easier stitches allow me to have fun with color. I need help with color choices and what stitches look good in stripes. You teach me this as well as the other crafters who share their work. You stretch my ability by offering a variety of stitches. I can do more stitches now! I appreciate you sharing your gift!
