All About The Even Berry Crochet Stitch
The Even Berry Crochet Stitch derives its name from the evenly spaced clusters that mimic the appearance of berries. These clusters create a simple pattern, making it perfect for a variety of projects, from cozy blankets to fashionable accessories. The even distribution of the berry-like clusters gives the stitch a polished and elegant aesthetic.
Using just a two-row repeat, this is an easy stitch to master. So grab your yarn and hook, and let’s make a practice swatch! Scroll down for the instructions for this easy crochet stitch.

Instructions for the Even Berry Crochet Stitch:
This tutorial is just for a practice swatch. However, if you’re a confident crocheter and want to just jump into making a project (dishcloth, scarf, etc.) then go for it!
Step 1: Start by making a ch of any even number.
Step 2: Work one sc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn.
Step 3: (Ch 1 does not count as a st) Work one sc in the first st.
Step 4: Work a berry st in the next st. So, yo and insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop.
Step 5: Yo and pull through just one loop. Three loops remain.
Step 6: Yo and insert your hook into the same st and pull up a loop. Five loops are now on the hook.
Step 7: Yo and pull through all five loops. First berry st is made.
Step 8: Work one sc in the next st.
Step 9: Repeating steps 4-7, work a berry st in the next st.
Step 10: Continue alternating sc and berry sts all the way across, ending with a sc in the very last st. Ch 1, turn.
Step 11: Work one sc in the first st and in each st across.
Step 12: Continue to alternate rows 2-3 (steps 3-11) until your practice swatch is your desired size.
See, wasn’t this an easy stitch? And the texture is so beautiful too!
