I’m bobbling!!!!

20120908-175429.jpg

My first attempt at the dreaded bobble stitch. They’re easy!

The tops of my stitches lie the other way to those pictured in Jan Eaton’s 200 block book I note. I think that’s because I’m left-handed so crochet in the opposite direction (left-right along a row) if you know what I mean?!

The Harmony Guide to Crochet Stitches advises that with bulkier bobble clusters it’s a good idea to work an extra chain stitch to close them firmly, so I have.

How are you getting on with this block?

PS: S said “You could crochet a snooker table”…I don’t think my eyes can possibly roll any more vigorously than they did.

  1. Well done. I’ve still only done the first two. I might skip the granny square one as I don’t really like doing them and they always seem to go a bit wonky. Or is that cheating?!

  2. Awesome. I have one row to go on the granny # block 2 and then this one…I love the look, but will see if my skills are up to this…cheers Lee
