Bobble Stitch (Solid) Graph Tutorial


Bobble Stitch (Solid) Graph - Extra Row of SC at Bottom and Side of Graph


On Bobble Stitch Graphs, each block/square on the graph represents a group of 4 stitches over 2 rows. The bottom row is 1 bobble stitch and 1 single crochet stitch. The top row is 2 single crochet stitches. The group of 4 stitches over 2 rows that make up each block is the same width and height, so each block on the graph is in the same proportion as the group of 4 stitches over 2 rows. For the extra row of single crochet added to the bottom and side of the graph, each square represents 1 single crochet stitch.


Stitch How To

Single Crochet Stitch - Hook through next stitch, yo, pull through stitch (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops on hook.

Bobble Stitch - Yo, hook through next stitch (Picture 1), yo, pull through stitch (3 loops on hook) (Picture 2), yo, pull through 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook) (Picture 3), **yo, hook into same stitch (Picture 4), yo, pull through stitch (Picture 5), yo, pull through 2 loops on hook** (3 loops on hook) (Picture 6); Repeat from ** to ** 3 more times - i.e. yo, hook into same stitch, yo, pull through stitch, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook (4 loops on hook) (1 repeat); yo, hook into same stitch, yo, pull through stitch, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook (5 loops on hook) (2 repeats); yo, hook into same stitch, yo, pull through stitch, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook (6 loops on hook) (3 repeats) (Picture 7); yo, pull through all 6 loops on hook. (Picture 8)



Graph How To

Foundation Chain - Chain 2 chain stitches for each block across on the Graph, plus 1 chain stitch for the extra single crochet stitch on the side of the Graph, plus 1 turning chain.

Row 1 (RS) - (Extra row of single crochet stitch at the bottom of the Graph) Starting in the second chain from hook, 1 sc in each chain stitch across, ch 1, turn.

Row 2 (WS) - 1 sc in first stitch, [1 bobble stitch in next stitch, 1 single crochet in next stitch] repeat the stitches between the [] across to the end of the row, ch 1, turn.

Row 3 (RS) - 1 single crochet stitch in each chain stitch across, ch 1, turn.

Row 4 (WS) - 1 single crochet stitch in first stitch, [1 bobble stitch in next stitch, 1 single crochet in next stitch] repeat the stitches between the [] across to the end of the row, ch 1, turn.

For subsequent rows, continue working from right to left across the Graph for odd numbered rows (you will be working on the RS of Graph for odd numbered rows), and left to right across the Graph for even numbered rows (you will be working on the WS of Graph for even numbered rows), changing colors as shown on the Graph pattern.


Changing Colors How To

To change colors, on the last yo and pull through of the previous stitch before the color change, drop the current color and pick up the new color and yo and pull through with the new color. The loop on the hook will now be the new color. Continue working your stitches in the colors as shown on the Graph pattern.

On Bobble Stitch Graphs, all 4 stitches represented by 1 square on the graph are done in the color of that square.

For even numbered rows worked on the wrong side that include the bobble stitch, on the last yo and pull through of the previous single crochet stitch before the color change, drop the old color and pick up the new color by doing the yo and pull through with the new color. The next stitch in the new color will be the bobble stitch and the next stitch also in the new color will be the single crochet stitch. Continue across the row, changing colors as required on the yo and pull through of the previous single crochet stitch before the color change.


For odd numbered rows worked on the right side that consist of all single crochet stitches, on the last yo and pull through of the previous single crochet stitch before the color change, drop the old color and pick up the new color by doing the yo and pull through with the new color. The next 2 stitches in the new color will both be a single crochet stitch. The first single crochet is worked into the single crochet of the previous row (in the same color), and the second single crochet is worked into the bobble stitch of the previous row (in the same color). Continue across the row, changing colors as required on the yo and pull through of the previous single crochet stitch before the color change.


Carrying Yarn How To


You will have fewer ends to sew in when the Graph is completed if you carry the colors up from one row to the next by dropping the old color and picking up the new color, leaving the yarn attached and not cutting off. Yarn can be wound onto bobbins to make this easier. When you drop the old color, take the yarn to what will be the back (wrong side) of the Graph. This will keep all ends/bobbins on the back of the Graph and make it easy to pick up the new color as you work on the Graph pattern.
