Repeat from * across until the last 9 chains remain. The final ending of row is dc3tog using the next three chains. 1 dc in each of the next 5. 2 dc in the final chain.
  3. Mark this side as your right side with a stitch marker. You will need to keep an eye on this stitch marker as some of the stitches used in The Stitch is Right to have characteristics where it matters which side you start the pattern on.
  4. You may need to fasten on a new colour and pay attention to the right side and wrong side.

Bobbles Crochet Wave – Stitch 5 on The Stitch is Right

The Stitch is Right, there are two rows for each repeat. They are both the same instruction.

For the Bobbles, when they pop out, they pop out toward the rear of the project. So it’s imperative when you start to ensure you crochet the bobbles on the wrong side with the single crochet so the bobbles pop out the right side of the project.

Bobbles – dc5tog. In the next stitch, *yarn over, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * 4 times, until you have 6 loops on hook, yo and pull through all to complete 5 dc together.
See the video tutorial below for a demonstration if you need help with this.

  1. Turn to the wrong side and fasten onto the first sc. ch 2, hdc in same sp, bobble, hdc, hdc, bobble, hdc, hdc3tog in the valley (bottom of chevron), *hdc, bobble, hdc, repeat from * to peak, 3 hdc in peak (top of chevron), repeat from * again to the valley, hdc3tog, repeat from * two more times, increase hdc in the last stitch. Turn.
  2. Ch 1, 2 sc into the same stitch. 1 sc in each next 5 ch. *sc3tog using the next three stitches (bottom of chevron). 1 sc in each of the next 12 stitches. 3 sc in the next chain (top of chevron). 1 sc in each of next 12 stitches. Repeat from * across until the last 9 stitches remain. The final ending of row is sc3tog using the next three stitches. 1 sc in each of next 5. 2 sc in final stitch.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
