HOW TO KNIT THE BEST BOBBLE

Thursday, January 04, 2018

If you haven't seen my most recent pattern, click here! It is the cutest little bobble bonnet. 



Speaking of bobbles...when I was in the process of making the bobble bonnet pattern, I researched all the different ways to make a bobble. I thought there was only one way. Boy was I wrong! There are so many different ways! Which one is the right way? Which one is the best?! I have NO idea! So I decided to ask a knit facebook group that I am in which has many experienced knitters in it and usually you can get an answer right away from lots of people so I was excited to ask what their favorite way to make a bobble was. To my dismay, NOBODY commented on my post. Not one single person. This showed me that A. Not a lot of people make bobbles. or B. Not a lot of people know the best way to make a bobble, that it was hard or they didn't like the way they have made bobbles in the past. So I accepted the challenge to find the BEST way to make a bobble, and I can tell you with all the confidence I have, that I found the way to make the prettiest bobble! Look no further, I just saved you SO much time and trouble. and yes, you can thank me now or later ;) Okay so here it is! Video Tutorial: https://youtu.be/GQZ_vI2U5YI
