How to Crochet a Bobble Stitch

Spread the love

Recently, I have a thing for Bobble stitch which some crocheters call Puff stitch, this post would explain How I make my Crochet Bobble stitch and show few Patterns I made using Bobbles.

Why make a Bobble stitch?

If you want a pattern full of texture and Warmth, then this stitch is perfect for you!

you can use any yarn weights, basically – you would get different thickness and bulkiness with the yarn type selected. I prefer using Double knit (#3) or Worsted weight yarns (#4) yarn. chunky (#5) yarns.

Here are few examples of what I made using bobble stitch, you can also find the patterns to these patterns in my Ravelry and Etsy Pages.

let’s get to the tutorial…


Yarn –

Double Knit yarn (stylecraft) in 2 contrasting colors

Hook – 5 mm hook

Bobble stitch – (Puff = dc5tog)*Yarn over (yo), insert hook in indicated st, yo, draw yarn through the stitch, yo, draw yarn through  2 loops on hook, repeat from * 4 more times in the same sts, (you should have 6 loops on your hook now),  yo, and draw the yarn through all 6 loops on your hook. Secure with a chain 1

 (dc5tog) = Double Crochet 5 Together

Here are few things to note while making a pattern using Bobble stitch

  1. Bobbles are to be crocheted on the wrong side to make them puff and beautiful
  2. if using two colors, carry “un-used” yarn i.e C, crocheting over it.
  3. A gentle pull at regular intervals would prevent the un-sued yarn from showing 

Row 1: (RS) With A, ch 21, dc in 3rd ch from hook, Hdc in each chain across, turn (20 dc)

Row 2: (WS) Ch 2, *dc in next 4 sts, 1 bobble, repeat from * to end of the Row, turn (4 Bobbles, 16 dc)

Row 3: (RS) Ch 1, sc in each st across (20 sc)

Repeat Row 2 and 3 till you have your desired length

I hope you are now confident to make your next bobble?
