Learn how to crochet the Bobble Crochet Stitch with this complete photo and video tutorial by Nana’s Crafty Home!
I love how textured this stitch is and you are only using single & double crochet stitches to create it!
I have a brand new free crochet pattern coming to the blog very soon and I wanted to get a tutorial out there for you to practice beforehand.
I have actually used this stitch before in one of my previous designs – the Christmas Blessings Stocking pattern. However, even though I did a complete video tutorial for the stocking I never did a tutorial for the Bobble Stitch specifically so thought this would be a good time to remedy that.
The bobble is created by working several double crochet stitches together (dc5tog) into the same stitch then working a single crochet in the next stitch. Working a short stitch before and after the double crochet stitches creates a bobble on the other side of your work. That means that the right side of your work is the back side of the double crochet stitches. You can work a bobble at any point in your pattern – the stitch pattern I work below is if you are wanting to create rows of bobbles.
So highly textured you are going to love making this stitch and it can be used in so many patterns – great for blankets and wearables! It is perfect for creating words or image designs in your fabric as well.
