Block #11: Bobble Diamond

From Eaton's "200 Crochet Blocks..."

Block #4: "Bobble Diamond"

This week is... Bobble week!

Bobbles are fun! But scary before you understand how they work. They look super cool: I reckon they'd look awesome in squares that make up the sides of a bag.

To create a bobble (specifically these bobbles) you work 4 open treble stitches in the same stitch, leaving 5 loops on the hook, & draw the yarn through all 5 loops at once. It'll want to pop out of the patch of fabric. Let it! In fact, encourage it. You've created a bobble :)

This is worked in that new acrylic yarn that I picked up last week, 4mm hook.
