If you’ve never tried this unique crochet texture stitch, you’re sure to love it! The Crochet Berry stitch makes a clever use of chain stitching within a single crochet to add texture that pops right off your crochet work. I love how it created such a lovely ruffled effect as the border on my Raspberry Lemonade Crochet Headband!
H8 5.0 mm Crochet Hook – I use Clover Soft Touch
Lily Sugar N Cream Yarn, Sunshine (100% cotton, 2.5oz, 120 yds (4) Worsted Weight) I used just under 60 yards for the washcloth.

Berry Stitch Tutorial Step By Step Photos
Start with a chain. You will want an even number of stitches, plus one turning chain. That leaves you with an odd number of chains total. If you’re working through the Washcloth Pattern below, you’ll want 27 chains.
Next, you’ll want two base rows of single crochet. This gives you some more stable stitching to work into, rather than having to deal with a fiddly chain while you’re learning. Chain one, turn, and make 3 single crochet stitches. Again, this just gives your texture a bit of margin.
Now we’ll complete our first berry stitch! Insert your hook into the stitch you’re working into. Yarn over, and pull up a loop as if to single crochet, but pause there.
Next, you’ll make three chains into the loop you’ve drawn up.
Then, yarn over and complete your berry stitch. It will look a bit too tall to fit, but trust the process.
Single crochet in the next stitch to give some space in between the texture stitches. This will also serve to condense your chain into a nice little “berry” texture. Look how high it pops!
Continue in the same pattern- one berry stitch, then one single crochet.
