The bobble stitch, like the popcorn stitch, is a great way to add some texture to your project. Unlike the popcorn stitch, which involves a cluster of completed stitches that are joined at the top, the bobble stitch involves starting 3 to 5 double crochet stitches and then finishing them into 1 top stitch.
To make a bobble stitch, yarn over and insert the hook into a stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 of the 3 loops on your hook, then yarn over and insert your hook into the same stitch again, pull up a loop and yarn over and pull a loop through the first 2 loops on your hook (now, there should still be 3 loops on your hook). Repeat 1, 2 or 3 more times, depending on how poofy you want your bobble stitch to be. Finally, do a yarn over and pull through all of the remaining loops on your hook to complete the stitch.
