I’ve used what’s left of the colours from the outer pieces to make my bobbles, and have chosen to use 2 colours per round. For each round I join my yarn in a different place, so that there is no one place where each bobble round starts and ends.
The pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below in brackets along with the abbreviations we will be using
- Single crochet (double crochet) = sc
- Double crochet (treble crochet) = dc
Round 6. Join your Colour H in the chain 1 space of any V stitch. Chain 2, make a puff stitch (yarn over and pull up a loop x3. Yarn over and pull through 6 loops, yarn over pull through 2 loops) chain 2 *In the next chain 1 space make a puff stitch, chain 2* repeat between *and* slst into the top of the first puff stitch of the round..
Roughly half way around switch to Colour M
Round 7. Pick up your loop from the round 2 rows below . Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the same stitch. Chain 1 and dc in the same stitch * working around the middle of the next 2 V stitches (not the chain space) make (dc chain 1 dc)* repeat between *and* slst into the top of the first stitch of the round. Don’t cut off
