When I posted a picture of the bobble texture I was playing around with on Instagram, there were a lot of people asking what pattern I had used. While I haven’t finished creating the pattern, I wanted to share the general instructions for the bobble swatch I was working on. Playing around with textures is fun so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

I was also playing around with a new yarn I hadn’t tried before. I was using the Brava Worsted Yarn from Knit Picks in the shade “Clarity.” The website describes this shade this way: “Clarity is a very light powder blue color with an ever so subtle hint of green.” I haven’t noticed any green at all. I would describe the shade as a light silvery blue. This yarn is nice, but it does shed a little. All in all, the color selection is fantastic and I would recommend the yarn if you’re trying to balance price with quality.

Again, remember that this isn’t a pattern for a particular project. This is just instructions on how I made the bobbles and textures since so many people were asking and I don’t know when I’ll be finishing the pattern – there are several in the queue.

Bobble Texture Crochet Pattern

Materials:

  • J crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn (I used Brava Worsted in Clarity) – this pattern is a yarn-eater so you’re going to need a lot of yarn for any substantially sized project.

Pattern Notes:

  • Chains at the ends of rows do not count as stitch. Do not work into the turning chains.
  • You’ll work this pattern holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together. Using a chunky or bulky yarn would also work.
  • I have 5 rows of ribbed double crochet before starting my bobbles, but you could only do 3 if you wanted them evenly spaced throughout.

Special Stitches:

  • Bobble: If you’re familiar with decrease stitches or double crocheting stitches together, you will dc4tog in the same stitch. If you need step by step instructions, keep reading.
    • Yarn over, insert hook into the stitch, pull up a loop.
    • Yarn over, pull through the first two loops on hook.
    • yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop.
    • Yarn over, pull through the first two loops on your hook. There should now be 3 loops on your hook.
    • Yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop.
    • Yarn over, pull through the first two loops on hook. There should now be 4 loops on your hook.
    • Yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop.
    • Yarn over, pull through the first two loops on hook. There should now be 5 loops on your hook.
    • Yarn over, pull through all loops.
    • Bobble made.
  • HDC in the Back Loop Only: Rather than working into both loops as you usually would, just work into the back loop. If you need more instructions, please see this video.

To make a swatch just like mine, do the following:

chain 35 (or any multiple of 3 + 5)

Row 1: hdc in second chain and in each chain across. Ch 1, turn. (34)

Row 2-5: hdc in the back loop only in the first stitch and in each stitch across. Ch 1, turn. (34)

Row 6: sc in the first 3 stitches, *bobble in the next stitch, sc in the next 2 stitches* across ending with a sc in the last stitch. Ch 1, turn. (you should have a total of 34 stitches – 10 bobble stitches and 24 sc)

Rows 7 – 9: hdc in the back loop only in the first stitch and in each stitch across. Ch 1, turn (34).

Repeat rows 6-9 until you’ve reached the desired length.
