Cuddly Bobble Cardigan

Hello ! Check out my new cuddly bobble sleeve cardigan. Bobble sleeve cardigan is on trend now-a-days. I just love the bobblicious texture on my sleeve. And I love the color of my Stylecraft yarn. (Obviously you can use any DK yarn)



Skill Level: Intermediate


Materials used:

• Yarn: StyleCraft Special DK

color: sage(A), duckegg (B), midnight(C)

• Hook size: 4.50mm

• Yarn needle

• Stitch marker



Abbreviation:

• sl - slip

• ch - chain

• sc – single crochet

• hdc – half double crochet

• st(s) - stitch(es)

• rep - repeat

• *_* - Repeat stitches inside this star

• sk - skip


Pattern:

Sizing guide: XS (S, M, L)


Textures: ch1, turn, *sl st, hdc* - rep. In next row, alternate the st(s). Make hdc on top of sl st and sl st on top of hdc – rep


Bobbles:

1. Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through two. (This is essentially completing the first half of one double crochet stitch.)

2. Repeat number one in the same stitch/space until you have a total of 6 loops on your hook.

3. Yarn over, pull through all 6 loops at once. (It helps to keep this part a bit tighter than the rest.

4. Single crochet in next stitch.
