Fun Bobble Stitch Crochet Ideas

Bobble stitch is one of the most popular basic techniques, so you must have seen it before. It’s often confused with popcorn or puff, but let me assure you – they are three different stitches! Bobbles are very versatile, and, as you can see in the post, can be modified in a lot of ways 🙂

You can use them to make an interesting structure or sprinkle them here and there to enhance other stitches and colors. If you haven’t tried it, be sure to do it ASAP, but if you know bobbles well, maybe this post will inspire you to try something new?

Let’s dive in!

Bobble Blanket Tutorial by Sirin's Crochet

fun and easy!

There are so many ways you can work with bobble stitch, it’s absolutely crazy! Baby blankets and throws are probably on top of the list, but you will find many, many different items with these little cuties.

Materials:

Sirin used Vogue With Love yarn, which is a combination of acrylic and wool. She chose 5.0mm crochet hook to go with it. In addition, tapestry needle comes in handy if you want to weave in yarn ends. Of course, you can go with any weight of yarn and corresponding crochet hook to make bobble stitches.

As always, you need a slip knot and a starting chain. First row is your base, so it can be made with single crochet stitches or double crochet. Bobbles are done by making five unfinished double crochets in one stitch, and then closing them all together.
