Special Terms:

bobble: Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through 1 loop (2 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and draw through 1 loop] 4 times (6 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on hook.

Notes:

  1. To change colors when making bobbles, work the last double crochet (or ch 3) before the bobble to the last yarn over, yarn over with the bobble color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the double crochet (or ch 3). Work the bobble with the bobble color to the final yarn over, yarn over with MC and draw through all 6 loops on hook to complete the bobble.
     
  2. In the coat shown, the bobbles are worked in the following order: A, B, C, D, C, B, A, B. However, any order, or even a random color selection, will work.
     
  3. To use scrap yarn for bobbles, estimate about 2 yards per bobble.
     
  4. Three separate balls of MC are used when forming leg openings. Before beginning chest shaping, ensure that you have three separate balls of MC (roll additional balls from a larger skein).

People, people, people. Do you not understand that FaveCrafts did not design this pattern, that they are simply SHARING it? Someone named Beth Temple designed it for Caron Yarns. You might have better luck getting help by going to Caron's website and sending them an email..

I need help with row 7. I don't understand how the extra balls of yarn are used. Please respond

What do I think? I think you need to put ratings -easy, bet., etc on these patterns as you do so (thankfully) on others.

Maryann, I recreated the bobble stitch and it looks like it all takes place within the space of one stitch. So just continue through w/o the bobble..meaning whenever there is a direction for a bobble, and say you're doing single crochets, just single crochet instead of working on a bobble. Good luck, hope your fur baby is warm and cuddly soon!

Been trying to figure out how to do this without the bobbles and the instructions aren't really easy. I'll keep trying. My dog is a male so I don't want them. It would be nice to put a (w/o b) to continue on without it. Thank you!

I have a great idea to keep all your crochet needles together , and its small and holds your hooks . Its a travel tooth brush holder. I use one and you can even mark it with a marker to remind you what hooks are inside. Thanks for sharing your patterns with all of us crafty patrons. mary martin

Maryann, I am confused about this pattern specifically row 7 divide for leg openings. can you send me a picture of the bobble coat without the pup in it. Am I supposed to leave a split with the main color ball change or is it all together then the leg pieces are folded either into the chest or down to match up edges. I know this sounds confusing but, I am really confused about what to do next and how to do it. Help Please!
