Special Stitches

The bobble stitch is basically three double crochets worked together into one stitch. To work a Bobble INC, first make one SC, then complete a bobble in the same stitch.

Bobble INC
Step 1: Make 1 SC. YO and go through the same stitch where you just completed the SC, YO again and pull up a loop. You have three loops on your hook. YO and go through the first two loops. There are now two loops on your hook from the first incomplete DC of the bobble.

Step 2: YO and continue into the same stitch as the SC and first incomplete DC from step 1. YO again and pull up a loop. You now have four loops on your hook. YO and go through the first two loops on your hook. You now have three loops on your hook from the two incomplete DCs.

Step 3: YO and go through the same stitch. YO again and pull up a loop. You now have five loops on your hook. YO and go through the first two loops on your hook. You now have four loops on your hook from the three incomplete DCs.

Step 4: To complete the bobble stitch, YO and go through all four loops on your hook. One bobble stitch, and one Bobble INC, made.
