Cascading Bobbles Hybrid Pattern

Patterns/DIY
2/20/2019

Hello makers! I am Stephanie, the crochet designer, maker and person behind By Stephanie Erin I am so incredibly excited to be here today bringing you a brand new pattern to THN Blog!!

I’ve always been creative and have dabbled in a number of different areas including nail art and designing mugs but when I started to crochet I knew that this had captured my heart. I picked up a hook for the first time about 4 years ago when I wasn’t very happy with my life. My job wasn’t where I wanted it to be, I was often bored and felt like I was floundering. My mom is an amazing knitter and I loved the appeal of yarn, but something about needles intimidated me. I was especially drawn to amigurimi, but only ever ended up making 2 items! Within hours of learning how to ch and sc I was making a scarf and I couldn’t stop. To me there is joy in creating something with my hands and being able to show it off. This led into designing patterns which is one of my favourite things to do! I especially love figuring out the math to grade a garment. When I’m designing I like to think I combine classic looks with a modern feel. I have been inspired by textures, nature and even a random doodle!

I love combining simple stitches with fun texture to create something entirely unique! Bobbles are one of my favourite stitches so this pattern uses a lot of them. It might seem intimidating at first, but once you start going it makes sense where the bobbles line up and you will be able to finish it by sight without counting! Introducing the Cascading Bobbles Sweater! Starting off with bobbles all around the neckline they cascade down your body to points on all sides. Grab your hook and and let’s get bobblin! Please share your progress photos, follow and tag me @by.stephanie.erin on Instagram. I can’t wait to see your versions!

Notes:

The pattern is written as follows, XS [S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X]
This sweater is a circular yoke made from the top down.
All rows containing bobbles will be done on the WS of your work. Be sure to turn before and after each of these rows.
A bobble counts as 1 st. The ch 1 to close the bobble does not count, place your sc into the bobble.
You will have the same number of bobbles in each bobble round, you’re only increasing the sc.
All sc rows will be done on the RS of your work
It may help to mark the first and last st of each round to help with where to place the sts when turning. Ensure to pull your slip stitches tight so you do not mistake these for a stitch when turning.
When you are done with the bobbles and adding length with sc, continue to turn every 5 rounds to keep the pattern style. [if desired]
There are extra sts added after the armholes are created to allow for more positive ease throughout the body. The sweater is designed to fit quite snugly with. If you would like a looser fit, you can add more sts under the arm holes. [this will adjust your st count]
