There are many beautiful stitches to learn in knitting. Some are harder than others. Some look hard, but really aren't. The RASPBERRY STITCH (shown in the header) is a quite easy. Once you get into the rhythm of doing it and practice for awhile you'll agree.
The pattern sequence is only 4 rows. The RASPBERRY STITCH is beautiful. It works well for a baby blanket, a scarf, a purse, a headband, a sweater. In fact, it works for almost anything. I hope you'll take the time to try this lovely stitch. You'll be surprised how often you will use it once you have learned how to do it.
