Bobble Stitch
Bobble stitch is made by working three or four closed stitches into one stitch,
Step by step
Bobble stitch is made by working three or four closed stitches into one stitch,
in other words,
by working three or four stitches into one stitch and then casting them off together as if they were one stitch.
This stitch creates a little ball that protrudes from the fabric and is used as a decorative element. In this example we are going to show you how to make a bobble with five double crochets:
Start by working a double crochet,
without finishing,
into the stitch indicated in the pattern,
into the stitch indicated in the pattern,
this means a double crochet without finishing the last step.
To do so, yarn over and insert the hook into the stitch.
Yarn over again and draw the through the stitch.
You will have three loops on the hook.
Yarn over again and draw the yarn through the first two loops on your hook.
There will be two loops left on the hook. This is the first unfinished double crochet.
Now repeat the same steps to work another double crochet without finishing:
Yarn over again and insert the hook into the same stitch.
Yarn over again.
Draw the yarn through and yarn over again. Draw the yarn through the first two loops on the hook. Now you will have three loops on the hook.
In the same stitch work three more double crochets without finishing in the same way. For each stitch you will have one more loop on the hook. Once you have worked the five double crochets without finishing you will have six loops on your hook.
To cast them off yarn over and draw the yarn through all six loops on your hook. You have just worked a bobble. Now continue working as indicated in the pattern.
