This beret uses two traditional aran patterns that are modified to be worked in the round. The blackberry stitch (also known as trinity stitch), a traditional filler stitch used at the seams or between larger motifs in Aran designs, is generally worked by increasing in each stitch on right-side rows, then decreasing on wrong-side rows. For this beret, however, the increases and decreases are worked on the same round, much the same as working bobbles. In addition, a double moss-stitch-filled cable pattern travels seamlessly over the beginning of the round to keep the pattern elements fluid. The crossing cables move in a diamond pattern, transecting the beginning of the round at their widest, then decreasing back down.
