The Lots of Bobbles Throw Crochet Pattern is a blanket that is popping with texture! It is a heavy weight blanket with lots of drape.
The Lots of Bobbles throw is made almost completely out of bobble stitches. These bobble stitches give the blanket some weight and also some amazing texture. I love running my hands over it and it is so cozy to curl up under!

This crochet blanket is very easy to work. It is worked in rows lengthwise and alternates colours every two rows. When you switch to the new colour there is no need to fasten off but you will carry the yarn up the end of the blanket. I will show you how to do all of this in the video tutorial below following the written pattern. After you work the blanket, there is no need to add an edging, but I worked a tassel fringe along both of the short ends. If you do not wish to have a fringe, I recommend adding a simple edging of perhaps single crochet or half double crochet stitches in your main colour along the two short ends. This will hide the loose threads that you carried alongside.
For this blanket I used 20 balls of the Caron Simply Soft by Yarnspirations. It is a soft worsted weight acrylic yarn and each ball has about 315 yards. I recommend, if you wish to use another type of yarn to make sure it is also a worsted/medium weight. You will need two different colours and 10 balls in each colour.
Along with the yarn, you will be a 5mm crochet hook. In the video below I will be working with a Wooden Streamline Hook in Ebony by Furls Crochet.

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from your hook an in each st across, change to colour B in the final stitch (do not fasten off colour A, but you will carry the unworked colour up the side), ch 1, turn. (135 sts)
Row 2: With colour B, sc in the first st, bobble (see “Stitches and Abbreviations”) in the next st, * sc in each of the next 3 sts, bobble in the next st; rpt from * across until 1 st remains, sc in the final st, ch 1, turn.

Repeat rows 2 to 5 until work from the beginning measures approximately 50 inches. Ending on a row 5 however work this final row 5 in Colour A. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Add a fringe to each of the shorter ends of your blanket. I like to work a knotted fringe – cut 5 stands of yarn approximately 10 inches long. Thread all five through the end of the bobble stitch row (I coordinated the colours so that the tassel would match the colour in the row), fold so that the ends meet and tie a knot up at the base of the tassel at the edge of the blanket. Repeat for each bobble stitch row on either side.
