Bobbles are a kind of texture stitch. They are basically a stitch increased by a number of at least 3, then worked in shortrows and reduced to one stitch again. The number of increased stitches and shortrows define how big the bobble will become. In this tutorial I will show a bobble with 5 stitches and 2 shortrows. There is another stitch which is worked similar to the bobble. The nupp (pronounced with a long u) is also increased like the bobble but there are no shortrows involved. The nupp is reduced to one stitch on the reverse side.
The Bobble1. Knit into the stitch where your bobble should be. Leave the stitch you knitted in onto the knitting needle. 2. Yarn over.
