Fans on Bobble Stitch

The Fan on Bobble Stitch is a combination of 2 rows that work together to create the look. In one row, the bobbles are placed into position, in the second row, the fans are put on the upper stitch of the bobble.

This stitch has a wicked three dimensional appearance as the bobbles are popping up.

Hook size and yarn just need to compliment each other.

To Make Different Sizes

Multiple of 7 sts + 2.

Remember the + number at the end of the sentence means that you are to add chains at the very end to maintain the pattern as written.
