Bobble Shell Crochet Stitch Border Tutorial


hello and welcome to Nana’s crafty home
my name is Tonya today’s tutorial is going to show you
how to make the bobble shell stitch border this is part of my autumn
Rhapsody stitch tutorial series that is a free blanket crochet pattern that you
can find on my website I will have a link to the details for that blanket if
you’re interested I will also have a link below in the description for the
written instructions for how to do this border so this border can be used on a
lot of different projects I think it would be especially nice for blankets it
is a very simple yet elegant way to end your blanket it has just a bit of a
bobble texture to it I would say it’s kind of like a mini bobble on that edge
of your blanket so it’s very pretty yet very simple for today’s tutorial I
went ahead and made this square using leftover bits of yarn from the blanket
so what you’re seeing here is paintbox cotton Aran yarn and I made the square
using this edge stitch that was another stitch that was in my blanket and has
turned into one of my favorite new stitches I do have a video tutorial and
written instructions for that stitch as well and you can find a link below in
the description if you’re interested in learning more about this great stitch so
essentially this edging is worked from the wrong side of your project and I’m
going to go ahead and attach my yarn I’m going to be using a clover crochet hook
size H 5.0 millimeter crochet hook and that is what gets us that texture
because the wrong side of that stitch is what has all of the effect so this is
the right side of my work I’m going to make a choice if you have a project that
is not definitively right or wrong side you need to choose which side you want
to be your right side and then you’re going to be working on the wrong side of
your project so this is the right side I went ahead and did one round of single
crochet evenly around the outside I would suggest that if you’re using this
for other projects to go ahead and have a simple border first before you go
ahead and start this stitch I think that you’re going to be much happier with it
if you’re not trying to work into the edges of your blanket and I have found
doing this that I like starting after a corner so just after the corner here I’m
going to attach my yarn again working on the wrong side of my project with a slip
stitch and then I’m going to chain three one two and three and then double
crochet in that same stitch then I’m going to slip stitch into the next
stitch and now comes my bobble stitch and my bobble is worked with a yarn over
inserting my hook into the next stitch yarning over and pulling up a loop so I
have three loops on my hook I want to yarn over and pull through the
first two loops only that will leave me two loops on my hook yarn over and then
insert your hook into the same stitch yarn over and pull up a loop I now have
four loops on my hook yarn over and pull through all four and that’s creating my
bobble then I’m going to slip stitch into the next
stitch bobble in the next yarn over insert my hook yarn over pull up a loop
yarn over pull through two yarn over insert your hook into the same stitch
yarn over pull up a loop yarn over pull through all four slip stitch in the next
so let’s take a look at that so you can see from this side it doesn’t really
have a big WOW factor it’s pretty but it’s it’s really not spectacular but
what happens when you turn back over to the right side of your work by working
those bobbles and then the slip stitch right after it pushes these stitches out
creating this mini bobble shell stitch and it is really pretty from the other
side of your work so that is your repeat bobble in the next stitch slip stitch in
the next working that down to your corner so bobble in the next slip stitch
in the next bobble in the next slip stitch in the next so continue
working that same sequence bobble slip stitch to your corner once we get to the
corner I’m going to work a bobble a slip stitch and a bobble in the corner space
in order to turn that corner so in that corner space I’m going to work a bobble a slip stitch in the same space and a
bobble in the same space be kind of tight but you can get it and then slip
stitch in the next stitch now I am going to change colors you don’t have to do
this I am showing you how to do this because this is how I did the border for
my autumn Rhapsody blanket so on that next slip stitch because you’re going to
start out that side with a slip stitch I’m going to change colors with that
slip stitch and finish that slip stitch with that new color and then pull it
through and then the next stitch is a bobble and
just continue on with that same stitch sequence with your new color so bobble
slip stitch bobble slip stitch bobble slip stitch babam sip stitch so just continue
working around your project working that same sequence bobble slip stitch working
a bobble slip stitch and bobble in each corner space changing colors if you
would like once we get to the end we’re going to go ahead and slip stitch to
that first stitch fasten off and now we can see here this is the right side of
our work and look how those bobbles just give an extra little bit of texture to
this project a great way to finish so many different projects I hope you found
