The Blueberry Stitch sprung to life awhile ago when I was experimenting with puff stitches.

There’s just something about crocheted texture, ya know?

I love the endless combinations that can be formed when you combine texture with simple stitches.

As mentioned, this stitch is a nice combination of puffs and double crochet blocks. I love it so much!

Speaking of puff stitches – if you’re unfamilar with them, don’t worry! I have a video tutorial for you; just keep scrolling to the “special stitches” section. 😉

How to Use the Blueberry Stitch

Now, one thing you might be wondering is how you can actually USE the blueberry stitch in projects.

I highly encourage you to make a swatch (a small square) of this stitch to try it out first.

Then, once you’re familiar with it, you can make it into anything you want!

I’ve seen various people post pictures of blankets & scarves they have made from this stitch pattern. It’s so cool, and I welcome it!

  1. Hi Rachel,
    I wanted to use your CAL patterns to make squares that I can join together. I am having difficulty making them the same size. The first pattern, I used 25 stitches. The blueberry pattern won’t work with 25 stitches, so I used 22 stitches but it is smaller than the first square. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Elizabeth! A few people have asked me about doing squares with these stitch patterns…the thing about the stitches is, as you said, they all have different m

    2. Hi Elizabeth,
      Some people have asked me about making the swatches into a blanket…but as you said, the problem is they can’t all be the same size. All of the stitches use different multiples. They were not intended to be uniform squares…so my only suggestion would be that you could make a bunch of different sizes and then get creative about sewing them together.
