Speaking of weaving in ends… there’s a lot of that to do, so I hope you love your tapestry needle! Above you can see the back of my potholder, before I wove everything in. Pretty crazy, right?! There is a lot of color changing, and rather than carrying an extra color for the whole time, I just added and dropped as necessary.

If you’ve finished weaving in your ends, you’re totally done! What do you think? I just love the texture the bobbles create! I’m so excited to hang this bad boy on my oven handle so I can look at it every day.

I kind of have a problem with pretty kitchen things though — I never want to actually use them, for fear of spilling tomato basil soup or something all over them!

I suppose it’s nothing a little Shout! couldn’t fix, but I still worry!

      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!

    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!

    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!).

    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.
