Blue Bobble Crochet Pattern


                                                                   9 x 6 inch rectangle

This is a staggered bobble crochet pattern. You are going to chain 25 stitches and it's made length-wise. It measures 9 x 6 inches. It's a very easy pattern. I made it this size for a charity but you can make it any size you would like. 

STITCHES USED:
*Half Double Crochet
*MB (Make Bobble)

HOW TO MAKE A CROCHET BOBBLE
YO, insert hook into next stitch, pull through, YO, Pull through 2 loops
YO, insert hook (in same stitch), YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops (3 loops on hook)
YO, insert hook (in same stitch), YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops (4 loops on hook)
YO, insert hook (in same stitch), YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops
YO pull through all 5 loops

If your bobble isn't as pronounced as you would like it you can do a single crochet after each bobble. It would replace the Half Double Crochet you would normally make. It makes a tighter fit. 

Pattern: Row 1: Do 1 Hdc in third chain from hook, and do 1 Hdc in each stitch across the row (23 Hdc's)

Row 2, 6, 10, 13: chain 2 turn, do 1 Hdc in each stitch across the row

Row 3, 7, 11: chain 2 turn, *Do 1 Hdc in the first 3 stitches, MB* repeat *-* and end with MB and the 3 Hdc's (4 bobbles)

Row 4, 8, 12: chain 2 turn, do 1 Hdc in each stitch across the row

Row 5, 9: chain 2 turn, Do 1 Hdc in the first 5 stitches, MB, *1 Hdc in each of the next 3 stitches, MB* repeat *-* and end with 5HDC's

The pattern repeats rows 2-5 but I wanted 2 rows of Half Double Crochets at the beginning and at the end.

Thanks!
