GOOSEBERRY STITCH

Stitch of the Month – April 2016
The Gooseberry Stitch is a bobble stitch that is formed by working increases in one stitch which is then decreased back to one stitch over four rows. The resulting effect is a heavily textured, three-dimensional design resembling gooseberries.

It is good to note that you will need more yarn than you typically would when knitting straight stockinette stitch.
