About the Stitch
The bobble stitch provides lots of texture and dimension. The bobbles only show up on one side of the work, so the wrong side will essentially be flat.
This stitch also takes up a lot of yarn so for this sample, I spaced out the bobbles or else I would have used an entire skein of yarn for just a 12″ square!
I used this stitch for my corner to corner bobble blanket crochet pattern and it came out perfect.
