Without further ado, the bobble heart potholder pattern:

Starting chain crocheted with yellow yarn and a bronze crochet hook

Begin by chaining 28, using your I hook.

one row of yellow single crochets with a blue crochet hook

Row 1: Switch to your H hook. Skip the first chain (ch), single crochet (sc) in the second chain from the hook and sc across (27 stitches). Don’t worry if it’s a little curly, it will flatten out as you add more rows.

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn. sc, *bobble, sc* (repeat * 13 times). There should be 13 bobble stitches, and 27 total stitches.

To make each bobble, yarn over and put your hook through both loops of the stitch youโ€™re building on. Yarn over again and pull through, as if youโ€™re starting a double crochet. Yarn over again and pull through the first two loops on your hook, leaving two loops on your hook. Basically, you want to crochet 2/3 of a double crochet stitch. Repeat this process (the 2/3 double crochet) four more times in the same stitch. You should now have six loops on your hook, and five partial double crochets (the 6th loop is connected to the previous stitch). Yarn over again and pull all six of the loops through. Chain 1 to finish.

Note: I usually start carrying my second color (pink, in this case) 2-3 stitches early and drop it 2-3 stitches late. I leave a 3-4 inch tail and just trim it off, rather than continuing to carry the second color. Toward the bottom of this post you can see what the back of my potholder looks like before the ends are weaved in.
