Rosette Stitch

 

The Rosette stitch is a textured stitch that is done with twisted stitches but is very easy to execute. It is a simple four-row repeat and can be worked on any even number of stitches. If you are looking for a quick knit that produces a gorgeous textured result then the Rosette stitch is it!

Trinity Stitch

Also known as the Raspberry stitch, the Trinity stitch is a beautiful stitch that has a very textured look. The stitch increases and decreases create little bobbles which resemble raspberries. The Trinity stitch is the cousin of the Berry stitch. As compared to the Berry stitch, the trinity stitch is more textured and has many gaps in the design which gives it a more lacy look. Because of the many increases and decreases, this stitch is rated intermediate.

The Trinity stitch is perfect for knitting accessories such as headbands, bracelets, scarves, etc. Because of it’s time-consuming nature, this stitch is a little too much for larger projects such as a sweater or an afghan but would work better for smaller projects or as accent designs in larger ones.

Broken Rib Stitch

The broken rib stitch is often confused with the mistake rib stitch. Mistake rib produces a more dense pattern while the broken rib stitch is more subtle and not as elastic. This stitch pattern is perfect for blankets and afghans and can be done with both odd number and even number of stitches.
