How to Crochet Bobble Edging is the 3rd in a little series of posts about different crocheted edgings. If you missed the others, you can find them here.
Bobble edging is trickier than the others. It involves an unusual little manoeuvre where you have to take your hook out then put it through from the other side.
How to Crochet Bobble Edging
Please be aware that I have used British crocheting terms!
Bobble edging looks neatest if the number of stitches you have is a multiple of 3. Don’t worry though if you haven’t, it will still work. You might have a bit of a gap at one end though.
So: put the yarn over the hook, slip crochet hook into 3rd chain from hook, yarn round hook, pull it through. Yarn over hook again. Pull newest loop through 2 nearest loops on hook. Stop! Don’t finish the stitch! You will have 2 loops on your hook.
Now make 3 more trebles in the same way. You will end up with 5 loops on your hook.
These are the 2 sections of the bobble.
You have completed one bobble!
You can achieve different results by increasing the amount of chains at the start of each bobble.
The bobble is always worked into the 3rd chain from the hook.
