Trinity, Berry, Bramble Stitch Knitting Patterns

by | Nov 3, 2017 | Accessories, Shawls

Knitting Patterns using Trinity, Bramble, or Blackberry Stitch

These easy textured stitch patterns are a 4 row repeat over multiples of 4 stitches. The texture is made by alternately purling 3 stitches together and then knitting and purling 3 stitches into the following stitch. The Trinity stitch has this pattern on the wrong side. The Bramble stitch works it on the right side.

To get the knitting patterns, scroll down the page to the individual pattern you want and click on the link to that pattern.

These patterns are not my designs but links to other designers who have generously shared their patterns. If you have questions about how to knit a specific pattern, please contact the designer directly.
