The crochet bobble stitch is also known as the puff stitch. It is typically used to add texture and dimension to your crochet project.

It is comprised of three, four or five half completed double crochet stitches that are drawn together. You will work all the stitches into the same stitch.

Step 1: Yarn over (yo) the crochet hook. Insert hook into stitch.

Tip: You’ll know how many stitches you’ve worked by the number of loops remaining on the hook. You should always have one more loop on the hook then the number of stitches you worked. If you worked three stitches, then you should have four loops on the hook.

The number of times you repeat the steps above depends upon the bobble stitch type (count-3, 4, or 5). In other words, if you are working a four stitch bobble, then you’ll repeat the three steps above a total of four times.

 

Last step—yo and pull the yarn through all the loops on the hook. If you are working a four stitch bobble, then you’ll have five loops on the hook to pass through. If you are following a pattern that has the crochet bobble stitch, then it should tell you work a sc between bobbles.
