PART 9 – BOBBLE STITCH

Join yarn to end of row 54

Row 55 – 56: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (169)

NOTE: The bobble stitch begins in the next row. I did not cut the yarn for the bobbles, but carried it through to the end of the row and picked it up when needed

Row 57: ch 1, sc in 3 stitches, *bobble in next, sc in 5 stitches* repeat from * to * across, ending with 3 sc

Row 58: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (169)

Row 59: ch 1, turn, bobble in first stitch, sc in 5 stitches, *bobble in next, sc in 5 stitches* repeat from * to * across, ending with bobble

Row 60: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (169)

Row 61: repeat row 57

Row 62 – 63: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (169)

Fasten off. Weave in the ends or add fringe.

    1. I can do #9 bobble stitch . & carried 2 color through main color.
      But, after 7 tries, still can’t do #5 Whisle? It’s the chain 3 loosely, that makes 9dctog, puff stitchy.

    1. It’ pretty simple 🙂 Just pull the new color through the top loops (the last step of the stitch before the bobble)

  1. So if I’m not cutting the yarn there will be a strand on one of the sides of the Afghan correct? Is there any way to hide this as I think this will look ugly-kind of like the back side of fair isle knitting? Also do I start the bobble stitch in the actual 3rd sc or 5sc space or is it the stitch after I’ve done 3 or 5 single crochets? Thanks!

  2. Just to be clear – on the NEXT row after I make the bobbles, I’ll work over the contrasting color used for the bobbles, sort of “anchoring it”, correct? I should probably cut the yarn I’m using for the bobbles at the end of the row I’ve made them in, even If all the bobbles are going to be the same color as the yarn will be at the wrong end of the row after I crochet back with the single background color. Hmm. Another use for variegated yarn, so that the bobbles in a given row are different colors? Off to experiment. I’ve never made single crochet bobbles, only double crochet, so this will be a new experience even though I’ve been crocheting for over fifty years (yes, that’s fifty. 5 – 0. Fifty!) Maybe you can answer this question for me – what’s the difference between a “bobble” and a “popcorn”? I always thought they were the same and never made many of either, but lately I’ve seen patterns involving “popcorns” where three to five double crochets are made COMPLETELY in a single stitch or chain one space, not with the last loop “held” as they are for bobbles, then the top of the first of those double crochets is joined with a slip stitch to the top of the last!

    1. Hi! Variegated yarn would work great! I love using variegated with bobbles 🙂 The bobbles are 5 unfinished double crochets, then pull through all loops on the hook. The rest of the stitches are single crochets. If you surround the bobble with single crochets it really makes the bobble pop

  3. Thanks! I was actually going to recommend a video I found from the friendly red fox that was extremely helpful. I’m sorry that I don’t know how to insert a link here! I’m noticing though that my bobbles are not as ‘protruding’ as the blanket’s in the image-not sure why. I’d love to see the backside of the blanket in the image. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong with the bobble but I think I’m just going to let it go-it has the contrasting color so I’m fine with that.

    1. When pulling the yarn though make sure it’s not too loose. And that the single crochets around the bobble are nice and tight 🙂
