The Bobblet Stitch in crochet is a fun way to add texture to your work. This stitch would be great for baby blankets, afghans, hats, and more!
Crochet Bobblet Stitch Tutorial
One of my favorite aspects of this stitch is the tiny little “bobbles” or “bobblets” it makes. While the full bobble stitch is nice as well, the bobblet gives a much more subtle effect. Even better, this stitch set uses just two crochet techniques: the single crochet and the chain stitch.
Crocheting the Bobblet stitch is quite easy. Let’s learn this new stitch!
How to make a Bobblet Stitch
1. Chain an even number of stitches.
2. Single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook and in each chain to end.
3. Chain one, turn your work. Single crochet in the first stitch.
4. Extra Extended Single Crochet (eesc) in the next stitch. See below for step-by-step.
Insert hook in next stitch and pull up a loop.
Yarn over, pull through both loops on hook. Extra Extended Single Crochet made!
5. Single crochet in the next st.
6. Alternate between eesc and sc to the end of the row. You should end with one regular single crochet.
7. Chain one and turn, single crochet in each stitch to the end of the row.
8. Chain one and turn. Single crochet in the first TWO stitches. (this offsets the bobblets)
9. Alternate eesc and single crochet to the end of the row.
10. Single crochet in the last stitch. This should leave you with two single crochets on each end of the row.
11. Chain one and turn, single crochet in each stitch to the end of the row.
12. Start back at row 3.
Repeat rows 3, 4, 5, and 6 in order until piece is as tall as you like.
When made correctly, each bobblet row should be offset from the one above and below it.
Helpful Tip: You’ll want to make sure to pop the chain-2 out (toward you) when creating the following single crochet. See the video below for more clarification.
