View Full Version : Two totally unrelated questions

My first question is, what is a "bobble"? I mean, generally what's the technique? Is it knitting a bunch of stitches into one stitch to make it "poufy"?

My second question is that if you're using two strands held together on a project, how do you weave the ends in? Do you treat these two strands as one to weave them in, or do you weave them in separately? I've been doing them separately, but I wondered if maybe I should be doing them held together as a single strand even when weaving them together.

I don't have definitive answers. sorry.

I would say that a bobble is a pouf of stitches.
as for weaving in, i say it would depend on what you're making. if the yarn was too thickish to weave in together, i would do them separately, but for felted things, i do them togegther. the fabric is really loose and you're felting it so you don't recognize a thick spot in the material.

Here's (http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=20981) a site (different forum) that came up when I googled "knitting bobble." You are basically knitting into one stitch several times then going back and getting rid of the extra stitches.

As far as the ends, I weave them in separately so that my project doesn't bulge out.

To make a bobble, you would knit into the front/back/front/back/front of a stitch. When you turn the row, purl accross all the stitches. THen, on the right side again you would knit accross, then pass the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and fifth stitch over. Voila! Bobble.

I weave in double strands as though they were single...I've been treating them that way all along, so why not?
