Star Bobble Square Pattern




This is my star bobble pattern, it was part of a blanket i made specifically for baby/little boys as there are tons of blankets for girls pattern wise but not so much for boys, so a star was born ;)

I used Stylecraft special DK in Saffron for the star above
4mm/G/6 Hook

Although you could use any yarn though as I said on the heart pattern I think the bobbles look better in thicker yarns.

Ok on with the pattern.

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!

Note: I'm using UK crochet terms throughout, but as it is only two types of stitches it is easy to switch to US terms as follows
UK dc - US sc
UK tr - US dc
