Happy Monday! Wait? Did I say Monday… yep, I totally did. Ok. I know that’s a goofy way to begin this post but I almost always post on Tuesday but this week I’m posting on a Monday for a REALLY good reason – the 2018 Stitch & Hustle Blog Hop! How awesome is that?
When Michele asked me to be part of this hop I was blown away, then she said that Lion Brand Yarns was sponsoring it I nearly died. Then I saw the other designers on the list – A Crocheted Simplicity, Rescued Paws Designs, Evelyn & Peter, Mama in a Stitch, Stitch & Hustle, & Sewrella! Wow! Do you remember feeling like the kid hanging with the upper-class students? Because that’s where I am right now. Just feeling like I’m pretending I’m as cool as all these women.
Regardless of how my impostor syndrome is acting up, I’m so excited for this opportunity. I have had this pillow idea in my head for a few months & I knew some ultra squishy Wool-Ease was going to be the best to use to really highlight the bobbles. This design worked up SO fast with that large yarn that I hope you all out there will love it.
I designed this so that I could make that large triangle at the bottom – no joke, that’s exactly what I wanted. I didn’t carry the yarn like I normally do, I used 2 skeins of Fisherman and 1 of Blueberry to make the section. And I only made this pillow one-sided. I just like my pillows that way (it makes it so much easier to design too 😀 ). Oh! And I think this would make a fantastic bag, too, if you worked it up like the Crayons are Cute Bag.

Pretty Bobbles Pillow Pattern

Pretty Bobble Pillow free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

Materials

Gauge

  • 12 rows x 10 scs = 4”
    Ravelry link

Terms/stitches used

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Bbl: bobble stitch

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 3 sections: the Front, the Back, and Securing. The Front and Back are worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the beginning/ end of the row.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • The stitches in the sides portion are a combination of single crochets and bobble stitches. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many single crochets/ bobble sts to make. EX: B: (1), A: (1), B: Bbl, means sc, sc, bobble in color B, A, B (in the order). Rounds with just A: (10) mean just single crochets are worked.
  • The yarn wasn’t carried across the tapestry/ bobble section, instead the use of bobbins like they did on Hodgepodge Crochet is suggested for this pattern.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • You can carry the yarn across but I did not. I used 2 skeins of Fisherman/ White and 1 of Blueberry/ Blue, dropping the inactive yarn as I went across the row.
  • Color A is off white (Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Fisherman/ 2 skeins) and color B is blue (Wool-Ease in Thick and Quick in Blueberry/ 3 skeins).
