GAUGE:
8 sts = 6 in. (15 cm) and 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern with largest hook and 2 strands of A and 1 strand of B held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Notes:
1. Bobbles are worked on RS rows.
2. If you have difficulty pulling the yarn through the 17 loops on your hook, try using one of the smaller size hooks to complete the Bobble.
Bobble With 1 strand of B only, yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook).

(Yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop - 2 more loops on hook) 7 times (17 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook; with all 3 strands held tog, ch 1.
