The Bramble Stitch knitting stitch pattern is a very effective textured stitch pattern knitted over multiples of 4 stitches and 4 rows.  You will need to know how to decrease stitches using purl 3 stitches together and how to increase the number of stitches by using a technique where you knit three times into the same stitch.

Instructions for Bramble Stitch Knitting Stitch Pattern

As indicated above, Bramble Stitch is knitted over any multiple of 4 stitches and 4 rows.

The instructions for Bramble Stitch are as follows:

1st row (right side) : Purl all stitches.

2nd row: k1, *(k1, p1, k1) into next st, p3tog; rep from * to end of row.
3rd row: Purl.
4th row: k1, *p3tog, (k1, p1, k1) into next st; rep from* to end of row.

Repeat these four rows until your knitting is the desired length.

The Bramble Stitch knitting stitch pattern work very well when you use two or more colours.  All you need to do is to change colour after each 2nd and 4th row and you will get an effect something like the second image below:

My samples are in a single colour and using two colours but you do not need to limit yourself to just 2 colours, three colours works just as well.  So please do experiement and have a bit of fun with it!

Just one example of how this Knitting Stitch Pattern can be used...

Bramble Stitch works well as an all over stitch or as a panel placed between other stitch patterns on a garment.

If you look closely at the two panels on either side of the centre cable in the image below you will see where I have used the Bramble Stitch knitting stitch pattern as a panel when I was knitting this baby sweater.
