Looking for a great textured stitch? Bobble stitch tutorial!


I adore the bobble stitch: it’s such a great texture! I developed this stitch because I wanted a puff… but the traditional ‘popcorn stitch’ leaves a hole in your work that isn’t suited for amigurumi.

The bobble stitch (bbl st) creates a puff… but by using the front loop of the previous round, creates a hole-less fabric just as plain single crochet would!

  1. This is a great stitch! I’ve used a version of it for toes on a yarn self-portrait before, but I love the way you used it for texture on the crocodile.
    I’m excited to give this way a try. Thanks!
