Those of you who follow me on Instagram have seen the above picture before and know that I’ve been trying to work out the kinks in this bobble heart pattern for a while. It took a few tries and some unraveling to figure out how to use the pixel-bobble method described by Repeat Crafter Me.

Once I had the heart down, I had to figure out what I wanted to make with it! I chose a potholder (trivet??) because the puffy bobbles will help to keep the heat from a hot pan away from your table.

Plus, my current potholder situation is drab A.F. And honestly, it’s a little depressing.

I love the end result and it really brightens up my kitchen! I bet you’re picturing your very own bobble heart potholder hanging from your oven handle, being all cute-like! And who could blame you?!

This potholder is amaze-balls, but ladies, get ready to count your stitches and weave in some ends. A lot of the crochet patterns I work on allow me to just space out while binge-ing on Hart of Dixie, but not this potholder.

Don’t worry though, the finished product is absolutely worth the semi-tedious counting, but I just want to be up-front about the type of project you’re about to get yourself into.

      Thanks, Michelle! I love crocheting, but I totally feel you on the too many hobbies front. My craft room is bursting as it is, I don’t know that I could take on anything else without buying a bigger house!

  1. Lorraine

    It’s beautiful! Thank you for persisting and then sharing the results.

  2. Jaime

    This is absolutely adorable. I can crochet in a straight line, but anything other than a simple blanket is tough. I’m still working on a scarf I started last year. 😉 (But totally pinning this for future reference…maybe I can figure it out this fall?)

    • Alex from You Should Craft

      I hear ya, Jaime! I made a granny square blanket and it took me like three years to finally finish. I love making little stuff like towels and potholders though — quicker gratification!

  3. creativejewishmom/sara

    Love love love! I would be fabulous if you’d join my linky party, lots of crocheters and I present really nice features each week which you would certainly be a part of! Hope to see you there!

  4. Clair Bear

    Thanks for creating and taking time to share pattern, its perfect-exactly what I’ve been looking for to make!! I cant wait!!

  5. Sylvia Larson

    Hi ~ I’m just learning the bobble stitch and am making a blanket with hearts. So, if I understand your instructions you change colors on the sc row, correct? I keep the yarn on the back side (WS)? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Sylvia Larson

    • Alex from You Should Craft

      OMG Sylvia! I’m so sorry I missed your comment! But yes, you’ll change colors on both the sc rows and the bobble rows. I kept all of my loose ends on the back side before weaving them in (which took forever!).

  6. Crystal

    Love this. While working the pattern I found that the color is not said to switch in the correct area, when it comes to the first pink bobble.

  7. Melanie

    Hello! I love this pattern! I am terrible at reading patterns but after following your tutorial for the bobble stitch, I decided to give this one a try. Also: following your other tutorial was a success! But as a newbie, it would have been beneficial to know that you crochet into the same stitch. I figured it out through trial and error 🙂

    For this pattern, do you do the six half stitches for each of the bobbles? I’m about a quarter of the way through the second row and my bobbles look much larger than your cute little ones! Please help!

    • Alex from You Should Craft

      Melanie, I’m so glad to hear that you like the bobble heart pattern and that my bobble stitch tutorial was helpful! I’m glad you figured it out, but I’ll try to edit the directions to make it more clear that each bobble is built on one stitch.

      For this pattern you’ll do five half stitches per bobble, and there will be 6 total loops on your hook before you pull through to finish off the bobble stitch.

      Hope this helps!

    Such a fun project! Thanks for the clear instructions and lots of images. I really had fun learning how to do bobbles and create the heart design.

  9. Diane

    Row 18 doesn’t make sense to me it comes out to 20 stitches not 27 Am I counting wrong? Thanks

  10. Diane

    Hello, can you please explain row 18 for me? I get 20 stitches not the 27! Thanks so much!!!!

  11. Shannen

    I am trying to get this pattern. How do I go about getting it. It’s not giving me the email. I need it for a baby blanket. Thank you.

    • Alex | You Should Craft

      Hey Shannen! I’m not sure why you’re not receiving the email– I checked and my email system seems to be working fine. The pattern is in the post, but maybe the email with the pdf ended up in your spam folder?

  12. nancy

    Row 18 is wrong. I worked it as follows: Ch 1, turn. sc, bobble 7 sc, change to color 2 and work bobble, sc, bobble, sc and change to color 1 and work 6 sc, bobble, sc. The following rows seemed to be correct.

  13. nancy

    Oops, i’m so sorry i omitted something! i’m correcting my error for Row 18: Ch1, turn, sc, bobble, 7 sc, change to color 2 and work bobble, sc, bobble, sc, change to color 1 and work 2 sc, change to color 2 and work bobble, sc, bobble, sc, change to color 1 and work 6 sc, bobble, sc. (27 sts.)

    Alex, that potholder is gorgeous. I have signed up with 2 diff emails and still haven’t received the 2 free patterns. I was looking forward to making the potholder! Thanks for the freebies and adding me to your list.
