Are you ready to add dimension and flair to your Tunisian crochet projects? The bobble stitch is a fun and versatile way to do just that. If you haven't tried crocheting bobbles using Tunisian crochet hooks, you're in for a treat! In this blog, we will explore how to create the bobble stitch using two different stitches - the Tunisian Simple Stitch and the Tunisian Knit Stitch.

Take advantage of the seasonal appeal of wooden crochet hooks when you start this craft. They are winter-friendly and provide you with a warm feel of wood.

Bobble Stitch Cushion

This pattern is an easy example of the basic process of Tunisian crochet, and once you understand the steps, you can move on to more advanced stitches and patterns.

Creating a Tunisian crochet cushion cover with bobble stitches involves simultaneously working both the front and back panels. Here's a pattern using Tunisian crochet in the round for a square cushion cover:

Materials:

  • Tunisian crochet hook/Interchangeable Tunisian crochet hooks appropriate for your yarn
  • Yarn of your choice
  • Cushion insert
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Pattern:

Foundation:

Chain multiple stitches to fit the width of your cushion insert. This will determine the size of your cushion cover.

Join the chain to form a ring by slip stitching into the first chain stitch.

Round 1 (Foundation Round):

Work a round of Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) or Tunisian Knit Stitch (TKS) into each chain stitch around the ring, working on both the front and back of the chain. This will create the foundation row for your cover.

Regular Tunisian Rounds:

Continue working in the round using TSS or TKS stitches for the desired height of the cushion cover.

Maintain the same number of stitches throughout the rounds.

Bobble Stitch Rounds:

Decide where you want the bobble stitches and follow the instructions provided earlier to create the bobble stitches. Remember to work the bobble stitches on the cover's front and back sides.

Continue the Pattern:

Alternate between regular Tunisian and bobble stitch rounds until the cover reaches the desired size.

Finishing:

Once the cover reaches the desired size, bind off the yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

Fold the cover in half, matching up the stitches from the beginning and end of your work.

Seam the sides together using a slip stitch or single crochet through both layers to form the cover for the cushion insert.

Adjust the pattern according to the size of your cushion.

Helpful Tips for Creating the Bobble Stitch Cushion:

  • Yarn Selection: Opt for a yarn that suits your desired texture and cushion size. A chunky or bulky yarn can emphasize the bobble stitches, enhancing the cushion's appearance.
  • Maintaining Tension: Consistent tension ensures an even look. Keep an eye on your tension, especially when transitioning between regular Tunisian and bobble stitches.
  • Bobble Placement: Plan bobble stitch placement beforehand for symmetrical patterns. Mark the spots where you'll incorporate bobbles to maintain a balanced design.
  • Practice Bobble Stitch: Before starting the cushion, practice the bobble stitch on a swatch to familiarize yourself with the tension needed to form prominent bobbles.
  • Counting Rows: Keep track of your rows, especially in the bobble stitch rounds, to ensure a uniform appearance and size for the front and back panels.
  • Blocking: Consider blocking your finished panels before assembly to even out stitches and enhance the overall look and shape of the cushion cover.
  • Seaming Technique: Use a slip stitch or single crochet through both layers for a neat and sturdy finish when seaming the sides.
  • Customization: Feel free to modify the pattern to accommodate different cushion sizes by adjusting the initial chain count and the number of rounds.
  • Finishing Touch: Before inserting the cushion, check for loose ends and weave them neatly to achieve a polished final look.
  • Enjoy the Process: Tunisian crochet can be relaxing and rewarding. Embrace the learning curve and enjoy the journey of creating a unique and textured cushion cover.
