I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts, and in this segment I'm going to show you how to make bobble stitches that you can use in making a border around a blanket or other crocheted item. So you'll want to first do a row of single crochet stitches and then on the next row you'll want to start off the row with single crochet stitches until you are ready to do your bobble stitch. So keep going, and this is going to be the wrong side of your work. The bobbles are actually going to show up on the other side. So we do a yarn over because we're doing double crochet stitches to make the bobble. We insert into the next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through the first two loops but stop there. We're going to do this a number of times into the same stitch in order to make the bobble. So do a yarn over, insert into the same stitch, pull up a loop, pull through the first two loops on your hook and then leave that loop, that final loop on your hook. Yarn over, insert again, pull up a loop, pull through the first two loops. So far I've got three half done, double crochet stitches on my hook. Let's do one more. You can do bobbles in multiples of three or in multiples of five. I'm using a pretty thick yarn so maybe I should stop with the three. I'm going to do my yarn over and I'm going to pull through all four loops that are on my hook and I'm going to push it out toward the back. Now I'm going to keep doing single crochet stitches until the next point where I want to do another bobble. So I'm going to do a bobble into the next stitch, yarn over, insert into the stitch, pull up a loop, pull through the first two loops. Yarn over, insert into the same stitch, yarn over, pull through the first two loops. Let's do that one more time. So now I've got four loops on my hook. I've got three half done stitches and I'm going to connect them all together by doing a yarn over and pulling through all four loops. Now I just keep going with my single crochet stitches to the end of the row. Now when I turn it over I'm on the right side of my work and I've got two bobble stitches. I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts, and in this segment we learned how to do bobble stitches.
