Beloved by pie makers, reviled by gardeners, the common blackberry is considered both a blessing and a curse on Bainbridge Island. But knitters love the plump texture of the stitch named for this bobbly berry. Opened up in a lace-weight yarn, blackberry stitch (also known as trinity stitch) makes dainty, lacy clusters. Plus, it’s handsome on the wrong side, too.
