Today we are knitting up the pretty, cozy Bubble Stitch Pattern.

First of all, you can create this Bubble Knit Pattern into a wide variety of creative fashion projects like scarves, cowls, hats, and shawls. Can’t you envision how great this pattern will look as cozy home decor projects like blankets, pillows, or even lampshades?

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 below 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.
