WeCrochet Podcast Episode 6: Puff, Bobble, Popcorn

Crochet offers a lot of room to create in new and exciting ways. Learning a new stitch offers an opportunity to design something new. This week Producer Sarah & Heather talk about Heather’s new (secret) crochet design that uses the Puff Stitch. #whatisheathersdesign

Then Sara and Heather explain the difference between Puff Stitches, Bobble Stitches, and Popcorn Stitches, and the Horizontal Puff Stitch. These stitches are great ways to add texture to a project but are easily confused. 

Next the WeCrochet team continues to celebrate International Crochet Month by offering an opportunity to receive free issue of WeCrochet Magazine Issue 2. Regan and Heather chat about Regan’s second crochet sweater. They also get philosophical about how crochet stitches develop and bread. We listen and share YOUR voicemails!

Heather asks Kerry about what makes a good crochet design proposal, and Kerry gives her top tips for helping your proposal rise to the top of the pile. If Heather can design a pattern, so can you. 

Last, Heather talks to Regan about following his first pattern and learning Puff Stitches.

About the Bobble Diamonds Throw:

The Bobble Diamonds Throw: A gray crocheted blanket with a geometric diamond pattern made in bobble stitches

This small throw uses texture and geometric shape to create a playful diamond pattern. Practice your bobble stitches while learning to read a crochet chart. You’ll find that both skills are easier than you expect!

Bobble Diamonds CAL Timeline:


We’re featuring a new free pattern every Tuesday for 12 weeks. This week’s free crochet pattern is the Bobble Clutch Bag.

It’s the gifting season, and we at WeCrochet are celebrating by releasing a free pattern every week for the 12 weeks leading up to mid-December. Each week we’ll release a pattern that you should be able to finish in time for gift-giving. This week we’re sharing the Bobble Clutch Bag designed by Helen Anderson in CotLin!

The Bobble Clutch Bag is a great opportunity to use cotton/linen yarns in the wintertime! Cotton and linen (our CotLin yarn) are traditionally considered a summertime fiber because of their breathability, but they also provide a lot of structure when working bags or other projects that need to maintain shape and texture. The Bobble Clutch Bag features that intricate texture with the use of the bobble stitch.

You’ll have so much fun making this project for loved-ones this holiday season. The bag features a stylish tassel and classy drawstring so you can easily carry the bag around your wrist for holiday parties, family gettogethers, and it might even fit a small crochet project so you’re never left without your favorite WIP (work in progress)!

12 Weeks of Gifting—Week 11:
Bobble Clutch Bag

We’re already at Week 11 of the 12 Weeks of Gifting! (Where has the time gone!?) Be sure to order your CotLin for the Bobble Clutch Bag today so you’ll have time to complete the projects before any big gift exchanges. We’ll release one more small pattern next week for all the gifting procrastinators out there (like me).

Be sure to look back on our previous 12 Weeks of Gifting pattern releases for some fun projects you’ll enjoy making through the summer months (even if you don’t have time to finish and give as a gift this year). Find fun afghan patterns in lively colors, larger market bags, cute cowls with matching mitts, and stylish headbands. Keep following along with the 12 Weeks of Gifting as we wrap up the year!
