Bramble Stitch

Bramble Stitch

Non - Reversible

Multiples of 4 stitches and 4 rows
photo shows DK weight, size 6 needles
4x4 inch swatch = 22 stitches, 24 rows

Fairly easy pattern with only 2 alternating stitches, that are again alternated on each alternate row. However, all the alternating can get confusing, so here are some constants.

The rows in between are all purled. These purled rows are on the public or right side (rs) of the stitch pattern. So, if the right side is facing you, while knitting the next row, you know it is a purl row. When the reverse, wrong side (ws) is facing, you will start with the alternate stitch of the stitch you started with on the last reverse side row (i.e. - if row 4 started with p3tog, row 6 will start with inc3).

Bramble Stitch Instructions

Cast on a multiple of 4 stitches
*NOTE - start the chart on the left side

Row 1 (ws): purl
Row 2 (rs): (inc3, p3tog) to end or row
Row 3 (ws): purl
Row 4 (rs): (p3tog, inc3) to end of row
Repeat Rows 1 thru 4, until desired length

I have gone over these charts and written patterns a number of times, but no one is infallible, so please leave a comment referring to the stitch pattern and any error you might find.

Also, feel free to ask questions. I can always try to answer them.
