The Big Bobble Crochet Stitch is for those who love extreme texture in their crochet projects!
These crochet bobbles are BIG! And they would add a lot of fun to many different projects! While I will be working the stitch in one colour down below, I would love to try it in multiple colours or work it so that the bobbles are a different colour from the background fabric. I think it would really make it pop!

The bobbles in this stitch are larger than your typical bobble stitch as they are made with double treble stitches instead of a double crochet. As they are made with the taller stitches, they pop out more creating a bit of a bubble like appearance. They are so much fun!
Materials for this Tutorial:
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in a single colour. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with colour!
