In my recent rendezvous into the world of crochet, I recently learned how to crochet the bobble stitch. Perfect for scarves, purses, and sweaters, this fun stitch is great for adding dimension and texture to your projects.
If you’re unfamiliar with the bobble stitch, here’s an awesome tutorial on how to do it from our friends over at AllFreeCrochet.com:
Once I started crocheting with the bobble stitch, I just couldn’t stop myself! I’ve added it to almost all my open projects and I’m always looking for fun bobble stitch patterns to make for my family and friends.
If you want to venture into creating the bobble stitch, I’ve gathered up some of my favorite patterns to help you on your way. These crochet patterns are easy and fun…and perfect for holiday gift giving.
I love this Shimmering Lacy Bobble Scarf and Wristlets set. This textured crochet pattern is great for Christmas and can be worn by women and men of all ages. The use of Shimmer Yarn gives this winter set a nice sparkle, but you can easily use regular Red Heart yarn as well. This is a perfect pattern if you’re new to the bobble stitch, since you’ll be repeating the stitch several times! If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can create a matching hat to complete the set!
If you’re looking for something nice and warm to cuddle up with during the cold winter months, you just have to check out the Aran Crochet Throw, made with a beautiful bobble stitch accent. This pattern is a little more advanced than the others, so if you’re looking for a challenge, you’ve come to the right place! This lovely crochet afghan can be made in any color, but I love the soft white of this pattern…and it makes it perfect for any room in my house, regardless of the decor scheme.
One of my favorite bobble stitch patterns is this adorable Brain Freeze Ice Cream Sleeve. When you have one of those days that only a small pint of ice cream can cure, use this cozy to keep your fingers from freezing as you dive in for another bite. This wrap can easily be altered to fit a container of any size, and can even be used as a coffee mug wrap as well.
