MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED TO LEARN THE BUBBLEPATTERN:


Crochet Hook:

To follow this crochet tutorial you’ll need a crochet hook. When I crochet I usually use 2 types of crochet hooks. I’ve listed them below:

  • Knitpro – Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks – My first choice as of now is the Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks from KnitPro. They opened my world to wood hooks &  impressed me with their amazing lightness & how they feel in my hand. Even though they’re not padded, they never give me any strain while using them. I’ve only come across them in sets They are available here:
  • KnitPro – Waves Crochet Hooks – Are the crochet hooks I use almost as my favorite. They are padded hooks & are comfortable to crochet with.  They are a little heavier than wooden hooks, but the padded comfort is truly amazing. You can purchase these both in sets & alone. They are available here:
  • Love Crochet
  • Wool Warehouse
  • Wool Warehouse (set)
  • Amazon
  • Amazon (set)
  • Etsy

Yarn:

You’re going to need some yarn to follow this crochet tutorial to learn a new crochet stitch. I really do love purchasing my yarn online. Here’s my top yarn resources:

Step 12: Chain 1 and skip 1 stitch

Crochet one chain and skip 1 stitch before you start back on step 3.

Repeat steps 3 – 12 until you reach the end of the row. Single crochet in last stitch.

Row 2 of the Bubblepattern

When you turn & crochet the second row you should put your hook through the bubble from last row, not the chain. However if you are working in rounds or spirals you will put the hook in the chain from last round to make your bubble. After two rows it should look like this:
