Bobble Blossom

This generic pattern can be used with whatever yarn and hook/needle size you prefer. For more information see this guide to our StitchFinder.


Vibrant color adds to the impact of a raised bobble-and-leaf design. Because of the variety of cables involved, the instructions are given as a chart.

Yarn Sport-weight wool in lime green (A), fuchsia (B), and bright green (C)

Equipment A pair of knitting needles and a cable needle



Chart key


Using A, cast on 27 sts by the thumb method.
