INSTRUCTIONS

STITCHES USED

Chain (ch), double crochet (dc), reverse single crochet (reverse sc), slip stitch (slip st)

SPECIAL TERMS

bobble: Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through 1 loop (2 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through 1 loop] 4 times (6 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on hook.

dc2tog: Double crochet 2 together – [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

 

NOTES

1. To change colors when making bobbles, work the last double crochet (or ch 3) before the bobble to the last yarn over, yarn over with the bobble color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the double crochet (or ch 3). Work the bobble with the bobble color to the final yarn over, yarn over with MC and draw through all 6 loops on hook to complete the bobble.

2. In the coat shown, the bobbles are worked in the following order: A, B, C, D, C, B, A, B. However, any order, or even a random color selection, will work.

3. To use scrap yarn for bobbles, estimate about 2 yards per bobble.

4. Three separate balls of MC are used when forming leg openings. Before beginning chest shaping, ensure that you have three separate balls of MC (roll additional balls from a larger skein).
