Bobbles add a really fun 3-dimensional POP
of texture to any knitted project. Hi, Guys, and Welcome to Studio Knit.
Today we are going to learn how to knit BOBBLES! We are going to knit our bobbles on the same
KNIT Row. I will demonstrate the BOBBLE STITCH in three different sizes using three stitches,
four stitches, and five stitches. I suggest you sit back and watch the BOBBLE
technique, then give it a try! Oh, and If you think BOBBLES look like a lot
of fun to knit, please hit like to let me know you would like to see more videos like
this. So, let us get started. One of my favorite things about BOBBLES is
that you can stop along any KNIT row and just add a BOBBLE! So, I am going to place this orange stitch
marker, just for teaching purposes, so that we can best see the active stitches as we
bobble. So, our increases are created by knitting
into the front and back. First, we will Bobble on this knit row with three stitches. We will
first make a knit stitch. Then, without taking your right needle off the stitch, we will
knit a second stitch into the back. Now, we will make our third stitch by knitting one
more time into the front and then take your needle off the stitch. So as you see, we now
have three stitches, where we started with one. Okay, Now, we will TURN our work to the back
and PURL these three stitches. Then TURN again to the front and KNIT these three stitches.
And one more time! We will turn and PURL, then Turn and KNIT. Once you have worked these
three stitches, we will PASS OVER our stitches. So we will pass over the second stitch over
the first stitch, and then PASS OVER the third stitch over the first stitch. Now just continue
knitting your row as you normally would. Let us do that again, and this time we will
make it a little bit bigger by using four stitches. Okay, so we will first make a knit stitch.
Then, without taking your right needle off the stitch, we will knit into the back. Now,
we will make our third stitch by knitting into the front and our fourth stitch is made
by knitting one more time into the back. Now, we will TURN our work to the back and
PURL these four stitches. Then TURN again to the front and KNIT those four stitches.
Okay, one more time! We turn and PURL, then Turn and KNIT. We now have four stitches where
we stared with one. And to finish off, we pass over our stitches. So, the second stitch
is passed over the first, then third stitch is passed over the first, and lastly, the
fourth stitch is passed over the first. Awesome, now just Continue knitting your row. Okay, here we go. This is the big bobble.
So to do this, we are going to make five stitches. So you pretty much know the drill. Here were go, we are going to knit into the
front, knit into the back, knit into the front, knit into the back, and that fifth stitch,
you might, you know, really have to force it but it will allow you to knit that fifth
one into the front. Okay, so now we have five stitches so it is
time to turn our work and purl. Now turn our work and knit, turn our work and purl, turn
our work and knit and with our five stitches it is now time to pass over. So we pass over
stitch two over stitch one, the third stitch over the first, the fourth stitch over the
first, and the fifth stitch over the first. Okay great. So now just continue knitting
as you would. And what I really love about this bobble technique
is that your back is really, really clean. Looks Awesome. So that is it. You have just
learned how to KNIT BOBBLES. I hope you are inspired to give this knitting technique a
