Bobble or bubble? I guess I like to call it bubble *shrugs*
I was looking for a good pattern to make for my swiffer swiper. I found this pattern online and I really liked it. What I love is that the bubble (or bobble) stitch can really work as a wet mop as well and it cleans well.
For this pad, 100% cotton yarn works the best. The yarns I like are this one and this one . The label of the yarn always suggests the best hook size, I tend to crochet a bit lose so I go for a smaller hook. You will also need scissors.
This is the written pattern:
YO: Yarn Over
SC: Single Crochet
YO, ( yarn over) insert hook into st, YO, pull through st 5 times, YO, pull through all but the last loop on hook, YO pull through both loops on hook.
Rnd 1: Chain 31
Rnd 2-5: Chain 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rnd 6: 2 sc in each st, bubble (bobble) st, sc in next st. Repeat from * to * until two stitches are left. sc in each st. Some rows might be uneven with bubble/bobble stitches. It really did not bother me.
Rnd 7: chain 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rnd 8 -12: chain 1, turn, sc in each st across do not fasten off.
Sc in each st all around the borders. fasten off and weave ends.
