Bobble without turning your work.

A little bobble lesson for those who are interested...the example is actually a 3 stitch popcorn:

  • Knit into the front and back of the stitch and then the front once more. 3 stitches. (if you were making a 5 stitch bobble k f&b 2x then front again so you have 5 sts)

  • Transfer these 3 stitches (or 5 sts) back to your left needle as if to purl, keeping your yarn in back.

  • Now knit these 3 stitches (or 5sts)

(if making a 5 st bobble, you would repeat the last two steps, transfering the stitches and then *knit them again)

  • Starting with the second stitch from the point of your right needle, pull the stitches one at a time over the first stitch and off your right needle.

Here are three popcorn stiches complete:

* When doing a 5 stitch bobble, you could do a purl row the second time working the 5 stiches to give you garter stitch bumps over the front of the bobble...I tried this for the very first 5 stitch bobble below, but opted for a smoother look for this project...

Voila! You now have a new time saving technique under your belt!

Thanks so much! I was just getting ready to ask you how you did it on your last post!

saleknitter said...

Thank you! This will be filed in my folder along with knitting backwards and cabling without a cable needle!

grumperina said...

Mmmm... bobbles!

Remember what you said about yarn from elann? I just got some Devon (on a tip from you, of course) and... it totally smelled like rotten cabbage trash when I opened the bag! This is the first time I'm noticing it. Maybe it's just their house brand, or something recent?

Lorraine said...

Slick! How cool is that! Thanks for showing it.

Kelly said...

That yarn looks so beautiful. And of course your work is perfect as always! Thanks for the demo on the bobble!

Dianna said...

The yarn from Knit Picks is impressive for this piece, and your knitting is impeccable! Thank you for sharing a new way to handle bobbles!

Valerie said...

So it's sorta like an i-cord bobble!

Lolly said...

This is so helpful, Carolyn, thank you! My next project features bobbles, and I will definitely try this method - thank you for putting together a great tutorial ;)

JulieFrick said...

Thanks so much! My current project is bobbly, and cabley, and though I haven't mastered the cabling without cable needle thingy, this will certainly save me time!

kellyhl said...

Stacey said...

Lampworking is a skill that takes a great deal of practice and patience. A lampwork glass beads artist understands the glass and the torch, and must learn how much heat it takes for glass to flow, how much heat can be applied to lampwork pendants that's already shaped before it becomes molten again and loses shape, when to add decorative elements and how different colors of glass interact with each other. polymer clay beads , Pearl Bracelet, Magnetic Clasps
