Tunisian Blackberry Stitch Crochet Stitch Tutorial

English Name: Tunisian Blackberry Stitch

Level of Curling: Light to no curling. More information on the natural curling of Tunisian crochet.

Suggested Foundation Because this isn’t an insertion stitch, you can work the Blackberry Stitch directly onto the chain foundation instead of using a different stitch.

Instructions: This stitch is worked similar to a cluster, which is more than one stitch, worked together into one. Just think of it as two stitches which you will combine at the top.

Review these two stitches:

Chain Back Bar Stitch

Tunisian Purl Stitch

Insert hook in the Back Bar of the horizontal closing chain, yarn over, pull loop through, bring yarn to front and insert hook in side-to-side motion in same vertical bar as the chain just used, yarn over, pull loop through AND pull that loop through the next loop on the hook as well.

This stitch has now created one loop on the hook. If you have created two loops, you need to make sure that you remember to do the instruction at the end of pulling the loop through all the way, as described.

This stitch is very similar to the Tunisian Double Stitch, except that it’s more textured and more firm.

You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want.
