The Bubble Stitch is highly textured, 3D knitting pattern featuring offset arrangement of bubble-like motifs all across.
Although it looks simple, it does involve a tricky stitch (k4b – knit 4 below) which essentially gives the knitted fabric a bubble-like texture. But, once you get a hang of it, most other rows are basic stockinette stitch. The stitch is perfect for different projects like market bag, beanies, cushions, and many more.
