Bobble Heart Pattern


So I'm finally sharing my bobble heart pattern! :)

I used a 4 mm/G/6 crochet hook.

The yarn pictured above (awful photo but it's the only one i have right now) was a UK baby DK weight in baby pink.
You can use any yarn and hook size, but i would recommend DK and Aran personally as I'm not sure how well the bobbles will 'stick' out with lighter yarn's.


I will be using UK crochet terms throughout, I will try and make a US version at a later date.

Crochet terms used are as follows
sts - stitches
ch - chain:
dc - double crochet
tr - treble crochet
MB - make bobble
F/O - fasten off

MB = make 4 open tr in same stitch leaving 5 loops on hook, draw yarn through all 5 loops. So in the MB stitch you will do as follows, yarn over, hook into next stitch, yarn over (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops leaving 2 loops on hook, yarn over, hook into same stitch, yarn over pull through two loops, 3 loops on hook, continue as above till you have 5 loops on hook after the last open treble and then yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on hook. One bobble complete!


This pattern makes a square roughly 6 x 6 depending on yarn and hook size and of course how you crochet, your's may be bigger or smaller.


So to start ch 28,

Row 1 - dc in 2nd ch from hook, dc in each stitch across to end, ch 1, turn. (27 dc) ch 1 does not count as 1st dc here or throughout)
Row 2 - dc across till end, ch 1, turn (27 dc)
Rows 3 -6 - Repeat Row 2. (27 dc)
Row 7 - 1 dc into next 13 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 13 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 8 - Repeat row 2.
Row 9 - 1 dc into next 11 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 3 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 11 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 10 - Repeat row 2.
Row 11 - 1 dc into next 9 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 7 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 9 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 12 - Repeat row 2.
Row 13 - 1 dc into next 7 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 11 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 7 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 14 - Repeat row 2.
Row 15 - 1 dc into next 5 sts,MB, 1 dc into next 15 sts, MB 1 dc into next 5 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 16 - Repeat row 2.
Row 17 - 1 dc into next 3 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 19 sts, MB, 1 dc into next 3 sts, ch 1, turn.
Row 18 - Repeat row 2.

  15. I just finished one, and it turned way too long, like two squares together. What did i do wrong? Was i supposed to do sc between the bubble rows instead of dc (in row 2)?to me that seems like the only way.

  16. It's written in UK terms. For US, change DC to SC & treble to DC
