Finally! Remember last year, when someone in the comments asked for a video? And then this year, when I said I wanted to start making video tutorials? Well! It's taken much longer than expected, but what started with this...
...and included a whole lot of swearing, sweating, nervous laughter, and general crochet shenanigans, has born crochet video goodness!
There was much trial and error, a week of dithering on the music selection (what is "moogly music"? Anyone?), and suffice to say, I am so lucky I decided to marry a video production guy! We hope to make more instructional videos in the future... and now that we've got the basics hammered out, it should go a lot quicker!
Written Instructions for the Bobble Stitch
Bobble stitches are worked from the “wrong side” – meaning they pop out away from you as you work. They are worked much like a dc dec, but all into the same stitch. To dc5tog, work 5 dc all into the same stitch, leaving the last loop unworked on the hook each time. When you’ve got 6 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 6 sts. Work tightly here, and as soon as you make the next (sc) st, the bobble should pop right out on the other side of your work!
Someday I hope to stop feeling like a doofus whenever I hear my own voice. And boy do I have a heck of a midwestern accent there, eh? But it was SO much fun, I think it shows how to make this type of bobble very well, and I can't wait to do more! Any requests? What stitches have you perplexed?
