Bobbles Stitch Tutorial


This textured stitches crocheted into the fabric are great for adding extra thickness to your project. A bobble is a cluster of stitches (usually in groups of three or five) joined at the top and worked into the same stitch or space.

The Bobble is really a classical stitch that can used in mutiple crocheting projects. The stitch is simpler in appearance to the Popcorn stitch (Popcorn Stitch) that we did a tutorial on early last year. If you are looking to add dimension and texture to your work, then the Bobble stitch is one you will differently want to master.

So lets get our yarn and hook and learn this neat new stitch and you will discover how simple this really is to work.

Bobbles Stitch Tutorial


Step One: Work 3 to five double crochet, (I am crocheting five) always inserting the hook into the same stitch and leaving the last loop of each on the hook. (pictured above)


Step Two: Wrap the yarn over the hook, (pictured above)


Step Three: draw through all the loops on the hook to complete. (there should be six loops to draw through.)

I hope you enjoyed learning the Bobble stitch! I would love to hear how you employed the Bobble Stitch into your project.

Until Next week, keep those hooks flying.



About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Thank you Pamela I have been looking for a pattern to make a tea cozy that looks like a grape cluster this will be a great stitch since it is a little smaller than the popcorn stitch it will be perfect to make subtle bumps thanks for the great tutorial.

  2. LeeAnne – I am glad you found this tutorial helpful. If you like crocheting popcorns you will love working this stitch. Let me know how your tea cozy comes out, would love to see it.
