Why would I want to use a bobble stitch?

Bobble stitches can be used to make some really stand-out texture on your project! You can use that texture to create a geometrical pattern, as I did, or to make words, or pictures that stand up off the background of your crochet project!


Lots of beautiful crochet projects use bobble stitches. I recently designed the “Dot-to-dot Cowl” using bobble stitches. This perfect cowl is made with three skeins of Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird.
