It’s so festive around here, even my stitch tutorials are getting Wintery! The Even Berry Stitch is a wonderfully textured stitch that creates a bump in the fabric that emulates the fat holly or mistletoe berries of Winter. Stacked on top of other, the bumps create a modern, graphic texture that’s packed full of warmth and perfect for contemporary blanket or accessory designs.
