Often times I will be looking at all the free crochet patterns we have on the site and I will come across some very pretty ones. A lot of those times they happen to be patterns that use the bobble stitch. What is the bobble stitch, you ask? It's a combination of four double crochet stitches or half double crochet stitches in the same stitch, but you leave each double crochet stitch incomplete without pulling through the last stitch. You then link them together at the end. The bobble stitch does take a bit of math and counting, so if you're not the greatest mathematician then make sure you have a pen and paper next to you so you can write things down.

The crochet bobble stitch really is a neat stitch that can be used in a lot of projects. My favorites are the bobble stitch hats and purses. This stitch is much like the popcorn stitch in that it adds dimension and texture making it a fun crochet pattern to put together.

How Do I Make The Bobble Stitch?

How To Crochet The Bobble Stitch

To create a bobble stitch with three double crochet stitches:
1. Yarn Over (YO), insert hook in next stitch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops.
2. (YO, insert hook in same stitch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops) two times
3. YO, and draw through all loops on hook.
NoteKnow that when you're bobbling, the bobbles will show on the right side of your work and you're actually working on the wrong side, so when you flip it over you will see your beautiful work.
