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.

Budding Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hello all!

It took me a lot longer than expected but I finally finished it! After almost two months the scarf that was inspired by my love for succulents is done. This infinity scarf has a very unique look which resembles flower buds being strung together therefore, I named it the Budding Infinity Scarf.

Budding Infinity Scarf - Purl Avenue
This scarf would look fantastic in a creamy, off-white color.
I think I will knit another one in that color.
Purl Avenue
It measures about 10″ wide and 60″ long.

The Budding Infinity Scarf is knitted with a sequence of increase and decrease stitches so I’ve made a video to help you all with the increase technique required to achieve this look.
