What’s a bobble stitch you ask? It’s a combination of four double crochet stitches or half double crochet stitches in the same stitch, but you leave each double crochet stitch incomplete without pulling through the last stitch. You then link them together at the end.
It requires some math, and a little thought, but this stitch isn’t super complicated once you get the hang of it. I like to keep a pen and paper handy to help me keep track of stitches. I’m a pretty visual person, and I definitely didn’t major in math in college. So if I can do it, you can too!
