RASPBERRY Trinity Astrakhan Knit Stitch Pattern


The Rasperry Knit Stitch Pattern Hi, Guys, I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio Knit! It’s Knitting Lesson Monday and today we
are knitting this beautiful vintage Raspberry pattern, also known as the Trinity or Astrakhan stitch. This pattern was requested by a Studio Knit Subscriber. If you enjoy learning vintage knitting patterns, please hit LIKE and COMMENT letting me know you would like to see more Knit Stitch videos like this. We begin Casting On our stitches in multiples of four and repeat we are going to repeat four very easy-to-memorize rows to create our little bobble-like raspberries, which are in alternating rows. So, switching to this beige colored yarn,
in this one stitch, we are going to make three. So we knit one, now bring your yarn to the front and in that same stitch we are going to purl one and again we keep it on the needle, we take the yarn back, go ahead and we knit into it and take it off the needle. And there we
have three stitches where we had one. Purling the three stitches together, and make sure that you have that yarn in the front, we have our three stitches. We take the yarn and we purl those three stitches together and go ahead and take it off the left needle. So,
where we had three, now we have one. Now the bring the yarn back and we are going to do that same series of increases again. Okay, so you know the drill, we are just going to
continue this pattern all the way down our row. Now all we have to do is purl all the
way down. Okay, so for row three, it’s very similar to row one, it’s all the same techniques, except this time, we are going to start with our decrease of purling the three stitches
together, we want to make sure that you have that yarn in the front. So, we have our three stitches. Now bring the yarn back, and we’re going to do that series of increases again.
So we are going, in this one stitch we are going to make three, so we are going to knit one, now bring your yarn to the front, and in that same stitch, we are going to purl
one, and again, we keep it on the needle, we take the yarn back, and we go ahead and we knit into it and take it off the needle, and there we have three stitches where we had one. And once we get to the end of our row, here we go, we are on our little final
knit one purl one knit one right there. Oh, and it’s exciting because now we get to see the front of our work and those RASPBERRIES have really shaped up. You can really see the texture and the
bobble of our RASPBERRIES. It looks so pretty. Now all we have to do is purl all the way
down row four. And we are just going to finish our purling row here on row four and we are
going to see how our work looks now. And one thing I noticed is after our series of four
rows, we are done with the pattern, however that second row of Raspberries really doesn’t stand out yet. It really needs one more row, so row one, it really needs row one, so if
you’re finishing up at this point, you could finish up with row one or continue on and
I’m going to go ahead and just quickly do row one so you can see how that really helps those raspberry stitches to pop out. So, our two rows of raspberries are very distinct right now. Just looks absolutely gorgeous. And I hope you are inspired to give this vintage knitting stitch pattern a try.
