What to make with the Mini Bobble Crochet Stitch

The Mini Bobble stitch is a fun bobbly stitch with some texture. I love a classic bobble stitch but sometimes it’s a bit too much. This mini bobble stitch has less pronounced bobbles than the classic bobble stitch. The back side is therefore less hollowed out and mostly flat which is great for blankets, scarves, garments, etc. I’d make a baby blanket or a fun sweater with some bobbly texture with it.

Before you Start

Materials

  • 4 mm / US G – 6 hook.
  • Worsted weight yarn.
  • Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.

Size

The pattern is written for a 15cm by 15cm / 6” by 6” square.

You can easily adapt the size to your desired project size. The pattern needs a multiple of 2 + 1 number of stitches; your starting chain will be a multiple of 2 + 2 for an extra turning chain.

Gauge

The gauge for this pattern is 18 st by 19 rows in stitch pattern for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).

Abbreviations

This pattern uses US notations.

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • yo = yarn over

Notes

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

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

The turning ch 1 doesn’t count as a stitch throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.

Stitches above a ch-1 space are worked in the ch-1 space.

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.

Special Stitches
