- 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!
