How in the world do I make a bobble?!!
I'm working on a pattern called "Garden Plot Squares Throw" from the Knitter's Bible. I've done 62 rows of the pattern and it's going well. It's one of my first major projects. I've mostly stuck with scarves so far. Row 63 calls for making a bobble with these instructions - (k1, k1tbl) twice, k1 all into next st, pass 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th sts over first st. How do I do this? I have no idea where to begin and I really don't want to ruin all the work I've put into this so far. Thanks in advance for any help.

What you do is knit into the front loop, back loop, front loop, back loop, front loop without sliding it off the needle until you do the final front loop

You'll now have 5 stitches on your right tip

1 2 3 4 5

Now lift stitch 2 over stitch 1 and off the needle (like a bind off) then repeat with stitches 3, 4, and 5.

Clear enough?
