Bobbles

You make bobbles (see Figure A-10) by increasing several stitches in 1 stitch and then knitting back and forth on them before binding off, creating a knob on the surface of the fabric. The more stitches you increase in a single stitch and the more rows you work on them, the larger the bobble.

Abbreviation:

MB = Make bobble: Knit into the front of the stitch, then the back, then the front, then the back, then the front one last time, and slide the old stitch off — 5 sts in 1. Turn your work so that the WS is facing (the stitches are on the LH needle). Purl the 5 sts. Turn the work around again and knit the 5 sts again. With the tip of the LH needle, pull the second stitch over the first and off the RH needle. Repeat with the third, fourth, and fifth sts.

Cast on a multiple of 6 sts, plus 5 sts.

Row 5: K5, * MB (make bobble), k5; rep from * to end of row.

By knitting on the RS and WS of the bobble, you make a textured garter stitch bobble. For a smooth bobble, purl the 5 stitches when the WS of the bobble is facing.

^ If things start to feel tight as you work into the front and back of the stitch, insert just the tip of the LH needle into the stitch. After you wrap, however, ■ JOJ1 be sure to bring your needle far enough through the wrap that the new stitch forms on the thickest part of the needle.
