Tiny Bobbles Stitch

The Tiny Bobbles stitch involves increasing and decreasing techniques which produces small bobbles on a stockinette background. The design work on the stitch pattern looks as though there is a string of bobbles running horizontally across the work. This stitch is not a lace stitch so therefore does not drape well. The Tiny Bobbles stitch is great for edgings and additional designs for projects such as sweaters, scarves and many other Fall and Winter knits.
