I love how easy it is to create texture with the crochet bobble stitch. The bobble stitch is very simple to crochet. It uses double crochet stitches to create its puffy texture.

In essence, the bobble stitch is made by crocheting a dc4tog, but instead of making the dc4tog across 4 stitches as a decrease stitch, we make it all in one stitch. See the tutorial here. You can also make the bobble using a dc5tog, or even larger bobbles with more stitches.
