Before you Start


For this bobble stitch tutorial I used:

Using an average-sized hook and a light-colored medium-sized yarn is easiest to learn. Depending on your pattern you will need a different hook and yarn.

This tutorial follows US crochet notations.

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • dc = single crochet
  • tr = treble crochet
  • skip = miss

Special Stitches

Puff stitch = Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over, pull up a loop, [yarn over, insert hook in same st, yarn over, pull up a loop] twice, yarn over, pull through all 7 loops on the hook, ch 1 to close the puff stitch.

Work instructions between [ ] the indicated number of times or until the end of the row.

The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row between < >.

The turning ch 2, ch 3 count as stitches throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.

The pattern is written in crochet shorthand.  For example:

  • “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
  • “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
  • and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.
