one size US J-10 (6mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge.

GAUGE

One block = 11 x 11"/28 x 28cm (gauge is not critical for this project).

INSTRUCTIONS

MB (Make Bobble): Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop, [yarn over, insert hook in same stitch and draw up a loop] 4 more times, yarn over and draw through 10 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through last 2 loops on hook.

Note: To work a dc “around” a group of sts, work as follows:
1. Yarn over
2. Bring your hook in front of the group of sts and insert it into the indicated st.
3. Take the working yarn behind the group of sts to prepare for the next yarn over.
4. Yarn over and draw up a loop.
5. Complete the dc as usual.
Taking the hook to the front before inserting, but then taking the yarn to the back before drawing up a  loop ‘encases’ the group of sts (thus the phrase ‘work around’)
