This perfectly charming openwork fabric consists of purled "berries" enclosed by little square frames of lace and set off by small ribs. Berry-in-a-Box is delightful in stoles and evening sweaters. Try it with a fancy yarn—slubbed, crinkled, ombre, or a sparkling metallic.

Row 2—K3 tog, * yo, (kl, yo, kl) in next st, yo, Decrease 5 as follows: k2 tog-b, k3 tog, pass the k2-tog-b st over the k3-tog st; rep from *, end yo, (kl, yo, kl) in next st, yo, k.3 tog-b. Rows 3 and 5—Kl, * p5, kl; rep from *. Row 4—PI, * k5, pi; rep from *.
