Crochet Bobble Stitch


The Bobble Stitch is a favorite among crocheters, and for good reason- Its easy to learn and it's cute. What more do you want. Keep reading for a video tutorial, written instructions and some of my favorite patterns that use the bobble stitch.


Note that the bobble stitch creates a very defined right side and wrong side. The bobble will stick out on the right side, and the wrong side will be flat. When working with the bobble stitch alternate rows of single crochets and bobble stitches to keep the bobbles on one side only.


Pattern for Bobble Stitch


Chain an even number of stitches.


Row 1: Starting in second chain from hook, work single crochets across the row. Chain 1, turn.

Row 2: Work 1 single crochet in the first stitch, work a bobble stitch in the next stitch, work single crochet in next stitch. Repeat from * across. Chain 1, turn.


Repeat row 1 and 2 until you reach the desired length.
