Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, yarn over, bind off
  • Knit rounds with circular and double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

The chubby middle-aged grandmother model is me. The beautiful young woman is my wonderful daughter-in-law Kerrie. I think I was smart uploading Kerrie's photo!

I love bobbles but I'm not thrilled about making them in the customary way, which I think involves too much work ... so I've come up with an easier way to do it.

I think this is an easy knit but standard classification states that if you're going to have to knit in the round, that's Intermediate Level. Other than that, all my knitters should find this an easy and fun knit.

As with all my designs, if you have any questions as you work up the design, please feel free to contact me. I'm always here to help! I want you to have an enjoyable experience with a successful outcome.
