I'm tired of loose, crappy bobbles. Anyone know a recipe or two for some good firm ones? I'd sure appreciate it.;)

I've used the methods in all 3 videos below depending on how large a bobble was called for and whether I wanted it smooth (k on the front, purl on the back) or bumpy (all knit). You may need to tighten up a bit on your sts although this can make the decrease row more difficult to do. if it's a large bobble, you can use a crochet hook for the decrease row to help pull sts through.
