Bubble Knit Stitch Pattern with Easy Free Pattern + Knitting Video Tutorial by Studio Knit.

Today we are knitting up the pretty, cozy Bubble Stitch Pattern. You can create this Bubble Knit Pattern into a wide variety of creative fashion projects like scarves, cowls, hats, and shawls. This Bubble Knit Stitch Pattern is three dimensional, has a lot of texture, and is totally addictive to knit up!  Since we’re cinching up our stitches, this pattern is a lot like a loose bobble stitch. Other names given for this knit stitch pattern are the Bubble Wrap Stitch, Air Bobble Stitch, 3D Bubbles Stitch, Dimple Stitch, and Chickadee Bubble Stitch.

This is a great knitting pattern to knit up in just one color, two yarn colors, or as many as you’d like! This bubbly knitting pattern, with a simple repeat of 12 rows, it is super easy to memorize. While you review the pattern below, you will see that it includes the Knitting Technique Knit 4 Below. If you haven’t heard of that before, stick with me! My video tutorial totally breaks it down. As a result, you’ll see that this knit stitch technique K4B is pretty fun, a little risky, and oh so satisfying.
