Is your knitting feeling a little bit plain Jane, well I'm going to show you a technique that will really help it stick out. I'm Vickie Howell from DIY’s Knitty Gritty, and I'm going to show you the bobble technique. Let's take a look at one now. This is what a bobble looks like. It’s a great textured stitch, super cute and puffy, I love it. All you need to do is find the place in your project where you like to add hour bobbly goodness to. Then you're going to knit in the next stitch, both in the front and the back of the stitch several times. Depending on how large or small you want your bobble. I'm going to do it 5 times. But you can really take creative license on this part. Okay, so now where I had one stitch before, I now have 5 stitches. So once you’ve done that, you're going to flip the work over and you're just going to purl. Just work those 5 stitches. We're going to purl back. And what this is doing is this is beginning to create our fabric that will add the extra bunchiness. So we purled those, flip it again. And then we're going to knit back. Now you can do this as many or as few times as you like, just depends how far out you want your bobble to protrude. Let me do it one more time. Flip it over again, purl back. I really like adding bobbles to children’s project, I have two sons of my own and I think it’s so cute to add little bobbles to sweaters for them. Okay, flip it. This is my last time that I'm going to do it. I'm going to knit the stitches back. And then once I get through with those stitches, it’s now time for me to close the bobble off. To do that, I'm going to essentially bind the off stitches. This will also get me back to the stitch count that I had pre bobble. So I'm going to slide the stitches over the first one. 1-2-3, and our last one, 4. And back to one stitch. Got my bobble, I'm going to work the next stitch on the needle as I normally would for the rest of the pattern. And that seals the deal. Quick tip though, you can always make the bobble separately. All you have to do is cast on one stitch with the contrasting yarn or whatever you choose to do and then continuing the pattern like I just showed you. They make great little buttons or little embellishments for any garment.
