Crochet Blackberry Flower - Free Pattern


  • sport weight yarn in white and green
  • 4,5 mm crochet hook
  • tapestry needle to sew in the ends.
Stitches and abbreviations used:
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch
tr: triple crochet
yo: yarn over


Special stitch used:
tr cluster or tr4tog  or triple 4 together[yo twice, insert hook in the stitch indicated in the pattern, draw loop through, (yo, draw through 2 loops, leaving the next loops on hook)*2 times]*4 times. You have 5 loops on the hook; yo, draw through all 5 loops on the hook.
In other words, you will make 4 unfinished treble crochet, leaving each time the last loop on hook, so at the end you'll have 5 loops on hook; yo, draw through all 5 loops on the hook.)

 I didn't found a video for the tr4tog, but to see how to make a tr cluster, here is a video made by Teresa Richardson demonstrating how to join 3 triple crochet together.
