The Bobble Stitch in Crochet

The bobble stitch is one of those crochet stitches that looks intimidating, but it is quite easy to work up!

The bobble is a cluster of five double crochets together which creates a puff liked texture which is perfect for adding extra detail to patterns such as this pillow cover. The bobble stitch adds such fantastic detail to almost any pattern, and this pillow cover is no exception!

The Yarn

For this pillow cover, I decided to work with one of my favorite yarns Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. I used the colorway Linen for the primary pillow color and Fossil for the bobbles.

It goes perfectly with my blanket design the Jane Crochet Throw from a few months ago!
