Gooseberry Stitch

This is a splendid "knobbly" pattern for hats, jacket panels, pockets, collars and cufTs, handbags, afghans, and extra-chunky sweaters. The gooseberries are bigger and bolder than any other "berry" motifs, and have more firmness and body than bobbles. The wrong side of the fabric is perfectly flat; this pattern requires no blocking.
