Bobble Stitch Granny Square | Joyous Granny Square

Big moods need big texture and the size of this bobble is just right! The size of a bobble stitch can be adjusted by increasing the number of times you reinsert the hook before completing the stitch.


The bobble stitch is the only stitch within the In The Mood Blanket that is worked on the wrong side of the pattern which means the granny square needs to be worked in turned rounds - keep your eyes peeled when you should and shouldn't turn.


There are 7 different granny square patterns, each square represents a different mood you might experience over 12 months. Below you will find links to each of the squares featured in the In The Mood Crochet Along

  • Happy - Puff Stitch granny square
  • Sad - Paired Half Double granny square
  • Angry - front post and back post stitches granny square
  • Fearful - extended half double crochet granny square
  • Joyous - bobble stitch granny square
