Free Pattern – Blueberry Hill — 10 Comments

  1. Thank you for the pattern. I am not quite up to the stitching stage of this pattern, but it will defiantly will be a challenge for me. I hope I can contact you if I have problems I can’t solve. Bless you for sharing the chart that should make it a little easier. I do love a good challenge though, so again thank you very much. Susan

    • You’re welcome! I will definitely try to help if you have any questions 🙂 I think once you try it, you’ll get the hang of it pretty quickly – just don’t let it intimidate you, it’s nothing but chains and sc stitches!

  2. This is beautiful! I’ve been wanting to try this stitch. Do you have recommendations for the type of yarn (i.e., fiber content) that works best with this stitch? I have some 100% fingering alpaca and am wondering if that would work. thanks for posting the pattern!

    • Yes! the cool part of this pattern is you can make the main section work with almost any yarn, because you’re measuring the length of each stitch. I used a light worsted weight yarn. The only change you should need to make to use a fingering weight is to add a lot more stitches to the edging. Just add as many as you feel you need to make it lie nice and flat. For example, you may want to put two scallops in each stitch instead of just 1, or you may want to do a row of single crochets first, and then work your own scallop or other border design. Even if you just left it as a single crochet edging, it would be pretty.

      Watch out with Alpaca though – you might find it’s a big “grippy” and the stitches don’t open up as much as they did with this acrylic yarn. I suggest trying a small swatch first and see how it goes.
