Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • Special stitch tutorials are included within the pattern. For more detailed
    instructions with photos, please follow the link provided.
  • The BLSC sections naturally pull inward due to the nature of the stitch. It is recommended to keep a loose tension during those segments.
  • The edging is an optional step however it does help to even the edges out.

Materials Needed:

Stitches:
SS- Slip Stitch
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
BLSC – Back Loop Single Crochet
BO – Bobble Stitch

Special Stitch Tutorials:
Back Loop Single Crochet: Work your single crochet into the back loop of the stitch. Looking down at the traditional “V” shape of the stitch, it is the loop furthest from you.

Bobble Stitch: Yarn over and insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook (2 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (3 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (4 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (5 loops now on hook). Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on hook. Do not chain to close the cluster, instead place 1 sc into the next stitch.

Pattern:
Begin by chaining 32.

Row 1:
Into the second CH from your hook, place 1 SC. Continue by placing 1 SC into each CH until the end of the row.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 SC stitches)

Row 2:
Into each of the first three stitches, place 1 SC. Into the fourth stitch, place 1 BO.
*Place 1 SC into each of the next three stitches. Into the next stitch, place 1 BO.*
Repeat from * to * 5 more times.
Into each of the last three stitches, place 1 SC.

CH 1 and turn.
(24 SC stitches, 7 BO stitches = 31 stitches)

Row 3:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 SC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 SC stitches)

Row 4:
Into the first stitch, make 1 SC. Into the second stitch, make 1 BO.
*Into each of the next 3 stitches, place 1 SC. Into the next stitch, place 1 BO.*
Repeat from * to * six more times.
Into the last stitch, place 1 SC.

CH 1 and turn.

(23 SC stitches, 8 B0 stitches = 31 stitches)

Row 5:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 SC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 SC stitches)

Row 6:
Into each of the first three stitches, place 1 SC. Into the fourth stitch, place 1 BO.
*Place 1 SC into each of the next three stitches. Into the next stitch, place 1 BO.*
Repeat from * to * 5 more times.
Into each of the last three stitches, place 1 SC.

CH 1 and turn.

(24 SC stitches, 7 BO stitches = 31 stitches)

Row 7:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 BLSC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 BLSC stitches)

Row 8:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 BLSC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 BLSC stitches)

Row 9:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 BLSC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 BLSC stitches)

Row 10:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 BLSC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 BLSC stitches)

Row 11:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across the row, place 1 BLSC.

CH 1 and turn.

(31 BLSC stitches)

Repeat Rows 2-11 (9 times)
After the 9th repetition, there should be 101 rows from row 1 to this point (ending on a BLSC row). Do not fasten off.

Lying flat, your neck warmer should be approximately 24 inches long and 9 inches wide. If you want to make your neck warmer longer in length, simply repeat rows 2-11. Please note that this will adjust the required yardage length mentioned above in the notes.

Edging:
I prefer to add a simple SC edging around to even out the project but if you don’t want to add one, that’s okay! Please skip over this section and continue with seaming. Fasten off leaving approximately a 40 inch tail for stitching the ends together.

Working into the same space as the last BLSC from row 101, place two SC stitches. This will create a corner curve around to the next edge. Evenly place 1 SC around all edges working 3 SC stitches into each corner stitch space. Once you have returned to the beginning of your edging, SS into the 2nd SC of your first corner.

Fasten off leaving approximately a 40 inch yarn tail.

Seaming:
Lay your neck warmer flat with the bobbles facing down. Bring your two ends together and seam using your yarn tail. I like to use the invisible seam to stitch together but please use whatever method you prefer. Once complete, flip your neck warmer so the bobbles are facing outward.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.


Your Bobble Ridge Neck Warmer is complete. I hope you enjoyed this pattern and working with the fun, textured bobble stitch.
