Special Instructions for Bobble Stitch

The bobble stitch is made by combining the shell and cluster techniques. Several stitches are joined at the top and the bottom, in this case joining 3 double crochet stitches. See instructions below for the bobble stitch in this pattern. 

  1. after the Ch3 to start the round, yarn over hook, insert into ch1 space.
  2. Grab working yarn and pull through. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over hook and pull through 2 of the loops.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 into the same space two more times so that you have 4 loops left on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook. Ch1 to complete the bobble.

Let's get started

The chain stitches in this pattern sometimes count as a stitch. ONLY on the 2 repeat rounds, rounds 6 & 7 you will count the chain stitches as a stitch.

Let's Get Started

Make a foundation chain of 19.

Round 1: hdc into the 2nd ch from the hook and each chain until end of row. Continue to the unworked edge of the foundation chain. 1 hdc into each chain across. Join round with a slst. (36) (See video for alternative way to start round 1)

Rounds 2 & 3: ch1, blsc into each st across, join round with a slst. (36)

Round 4: ch2, skip the next st, work 1 sc into the next st, * ch1, skip the next st, work 1 sc into the next st, rep from * to last  st, ch1, skip the last st, join round with a slst. (36 sts or 18 ch1 spaces)

Round 5: ch3, 1 bobble into the ch1 space (the space between each sc) until last space. In the last space do a partial bobble. join round with a slst into the space between the ch2 and the first bobble. (18 bobbles)

A partial bobble is everything up to the last yarn over in the bobble stitch In this pattern the ch2 is part of the last bobble stitch, this is why you do a partial bobble  and leave off the ch1 for the last bobble of the round.

Round 6: ch2, work 1 sc into the space between the bobble * ch1, work 1 sc into the space between the bobble, rep from * to the last bobble, ch1, join round with a slst. (18 ch1 spaces)

Round 7: ch3, 1 bobble into the ch1 space (the space between each sc) until last space. In the last space do a partial bobble. join round with a slst into the space between the ch2 and the first bobble. (18 bobbles)

Rounds 8-17: Repeat rounds 6 & 7, or repeat until work reaches desired length. I like to work the repeat rounds 6 times for a total of 7 rounds of bobbles. 

Round 18: ch1, sc into the space in between each bobble and the top of each bobble stitch until you reach the beginning, join with a sl st. (36)

Rounds  19 & 20: ch1, blsc into each st until you reach the beginning, join with a sl st. (36)

Cut yarn leaving a long enough tail to weave in ends.

Modifications

This pattern is pretty easily modified to a bigger or smaller size, if you want to adjust the width, start with a chain in a multiple of 2 + 1 (you need an odd number) I will sometimes create my chain, then measure it to the item I am making it for, you want the chain to be the same length as the width, without it being stretched.

For the length, a row of bobbles measures about 1 inch, and the kindle sleeve in my pattern is 8″ tall by 5″. If you wanted to make your sleeve 10″ tall you would need to add 2 more rounds of the repeat rows for a total of 9 rounds of bobbles.

I am still working on more modifications for this pattern, I will be making it in a larger size and posting those details soon, I also am working on making this sleeve with other yarn options and hope to have those versions posted as soon as I can.

Thank you for making it this far

I really hope you enjoy this pattern, I had a lot of fun re-working my Bobble Stitch Tote bag to fit on my kindle Paperwhite. I do apologize that I wasn’t able to get everything for this post up today as I had planned. I am a mother first and am doing my best to fit in this blog and also spend time with my family. I do appreciate your understanding and will have this post updated in no time with the full video and modifications for the sleeve. I hope that most of you will be able to take what is here now and make a sleeve or two 🙂
