How to Turn Bobble Stitches into Flowers

How to Turn Bobble Stitches into Flowers

Have you seen the trending embroidery sweaters and blankets? It feels like embroidery is popping up all over the place! I haven’t had the change to learn or practice embroidery just yet, but it is definitely on my list of things to learn! I would love to be able to customized crochet blankets or sweaters with sweet little flowers or names.

One pattern I would love to add embroidery is The Georgie Blanket. This timeless blanket would be too cute with a name embroidered into the corner. While I still need a lot of practice before I can get to that point, I wanted to experiment with the possibility of using crochet stitches to add a personalized touch. While working with my colorful Georgie lovey, I came up with stitches for turning those beautiful bobbles into flower centers! The bright colored bobbles of this lovey are so playful and these flowers add the perfect whimsical touch!

To add these to your blanket or lovey, the stitches are simple. Take your 4 mm hook (or whichever you prefer) and insert your hook around a stitch at the base or a bobble. Make a slip knot with your yarn and insert your hook into the loop. Now, with medium tension (too tight and it will be too small; too loose and they will look wonky!) make FIVE chain stitches. Gently pull the strand out straight to a stitch on your blanket. Slip stitch around a stitch on the blanket to secure the strand. Now, working back towards the bobble, make FIVE more chain stitches. Slip stitch around a stitch at the base of the bobble to secure the strand. This should make one petal. Repeat as many times as you’d like to make your way around the bobble!
