The oblique bobble stitch is one of the most popular with those who love big volumes. This stitch, which we crocheted, is perfect for making super chunky sweaters! Then with our Piuma yarn, which was chosen for this stitch, the outcome is even softer and chunkier. Let’s get started.
It’s done on a number of foundation chains in multiples of 3 + 2.
Row 1: chain 1, skip 2 chains starting from the hook, single crochet 1 in each of the following chains
row 2: chain 1, *single crochet 1 on the following stitch, 1 bobble on the following stitch (on the same foundation stitch work 5 open double crochet and then closed together), single crochet 1 in the following stitch*, always repeat from * to * and finish off with 1 single crochet on the beginning stitch of the previous round
row 3 – 5 and 7: chain 1, then single crochet 1 in each of the following stitches
row 4: chain 1, *single crochet 1 in each of the 2 following stitches, 1 bobble in the following stitch* finish off with 1 single crochet on the beginning stitch of the previous row
row 6: chain 1, *1 bobble in the following stitch, single crochet 1 on each of the following 2 stitches* finish off with 1 single crochet on the beginning stitch of the previous round
row 8: start again from row 2.
Start from the stitch that comes before the first asterisk, repeat from * to * for all the round and finish with the stitch that comes after the second asterisk.
