In this DROPS video we show how to knit a sailor bobble pattern. It's fun and decorative!
This is what we did on our chunky sample of 21 sts.
Row 1-5: stockinette with 1 edge st each side in garter st.
Row 6 (=RS): K1 edge st, K1, *count 5 sts down from st on left needle, put your right needle through and pick up yarn (=1 bobble), slip st off left needle and let st unravel, K3*, repeat *-*, end with 1 bobble, K2.
Row 7-11: stockinette with 1 edge st each side in garter st.
Row 12: K1 edge st, K3, *1 bobble, K3*, repeat *-*, end with K1.
Repeat row 1-12.
Towards the end of our video we show how it looks knitting on smaller needles with a DK weight yarn.
You need a number of sts divisible by 4 + 3 sts + 1 edge st each side, (for bobble with 3 sts), and divisible by 6 + 3 + 1 edge st each side (for bobble with 5 sts).
P.S. Depending on desired size of the bobble, you can choose to knit the st 3-5 rows below and also work 3-5 sts between each st picked up below.
