Please Help: Holes In My Bobbles
So I'm making a dishcloth with bobbles...but there are holes around all my bobbles. What's the dilly yo? That's gonna be a useless dishcloth. So am I knitting too loosely? Or too tightly?

It's Sugar'n'Cream btw.
this pattern.

I think that's just the nature of bobbles. Once it's washed it will shrink it up a bit and make them tighter I think. If anyone knows otherwise let us know.

Is that the trinity stitch? Beautiful example, if so. I believe that's the way it's supposed to look, the bobbles suspended almost independently from each other. Jan's probably right, it'll tighten up after washing.

Love that stitch, nice job!

Thanks!
This is the first time I've ever tried bobbles and since you can't see holes in the picture, I assumed I just miffed it up.

nuknitterI do believe it's the trinity stitch. It looks nice actually, but it might not be functional. Fun to knit though!
