If, like me, you like small tactile details in your knitting, then the stitches for this and next week will be of real interest to you. These bobbles are much smaller than the ‘normal’ versions used in most patterns, mix them up with some garter lines and it makes for an interesting combination.
Worked over a multiple of 6sts plus 3
