I absolutely love the bobble stitch. I have used it on a variety of items. Purses, blankets and scarves. They make lovely borders and add a pretty touch. The stitch itself is very simple. It's just pull up a loop, over and over and then pull the yarn thru. The size of the bobble depends on the number of loops.
