How To Crochet Bobble Stitch Video
We have included a video tutorial to show you how to Crochet the Bobble Stitch from Moogly. It is easy to follow and we highly recommend that you view so you can learn the technique. This is the very stitch that is used in the featured Blackberry Salad Afghan that we have included further down our post. Click Play above ^
It’s perfect for creating stripes and patterns and you can use them in solid way or as a finishing touch like the gorgeous rainbow blanket that we have featured below.
Still on the Moogly Blog, this Blackberry Salad Afghan Blanket uses DC5tog, otherwise known as Double Crochet 5 together. Bobble stitches are worked from the “wrong side” – meaning they pop out away from you as you work.
They are worked much like a dc dec, but all into the same stitch. To dc5tog, work 5 dc all into the same stitch, leaving the last loop unworked on the hook each time. When you’ve got 6 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 6 sts. Work tightly here, and as soon as you make the next (sc) st, the bobble should pop right out on the other side of your work! You can find all the details and free pattern on Moogly Blog here.
