Just finished making these and I love them! The bobble-shell cluster edging is the best. I'm a beginner and the instructions were very easy to follow. Thank you! - Sue, Arizona, US


Hello y'all from Texas, USA. I am ginger and I am just now going outside my world(literally) to learn new stitches and methods. I like your edging and will use it with my next project. Do you have a method for joining motifs with a flat seam for both sides? I wait to hear from you...


I was madly hooking a hat at the dr surgery yesterday and the receptionist gave me your blog. Ive only been looking for a few hours and I just want to say you are wonderful and all your work is so inspirational. Thank you. I can't wait to get started. Perth - Australia


I just found you and used the bobble shell edging to finish a granny square baby blanket. Love the result! Thank you so much.

I guess I am the only 2013 comment but I just tried this edging and love it. Your instructions were very clear even for this leftie. I tried the edge on a dishcloth and it has elevated it to something beautiful. I'll give it to someone special for Christmas. Thanks so much for taking the time to post the tutorial!


Thank you for a lovely finish for my project, just what I was looking for!

Alison Spanner

Your tutorials are perfect! Thanks Lucy!

Love this edging! I was looking for something not too feminine for a masculine afghan. This is perfect! I too have only been crocheting for a short time and your directions were so easy to follow. Thank you so much!


Hi Lucy! I love, love, love your blog and follow it regularly. As I finish up my Ribbley Goodness Blanket, I'm wondering about an edging. Do you think this bobble edging would work? Hugs!

Julie Devine

Hi Lucy thankyou for sharing this bobble edging. Your tutorials are so well written. I have only been crocheting for 2 weeks and wow I am hooked because of your site and tutorials. When are you writing a book? x


I use this bobble stitch all the time!! Thank you for sharing!! Cheers from Nashville, TN!!


I love how well written your tutorials are. Thank you very much for taking the time to write them!


Thank you so much for this tutorial, Lucy!! I recently added a slight variation of your edging to a knitted cardigan and it is so lovely!! Your explanation is very neat and the pictures helped a lot, thanks very much =)


You have made a beginner crochet-er very happy! I managed your wristwarmers (a little rustic looking, but rather cute) and I can't believe how quickly and beautifully this edging finished them off. Thank you so much, your blog and wonderful instructions are a real find.

I was browsing to find an edging for the miniature wedding cake I am crocheting and came across this, it's perfect and looks just like icing 'bumps'!!! I love your website and will call back often, thank you Lucy.

I have just finished using the bobble-shell edging on a baby afghan, and it was exactly right for the pattern I devised for the afghan. The edging is both easy and lovely-- I was delighted to discover it. From half-way across the world in both space and time you teach oodles of strangers your creations. Thank you.

Rachel Thurlby

This is exactly what I've been thinking of to finish off a little blanket of squares for my toddler - a great tutorial! Many thanks x

Rachael Ramos

I love visiting your blog from time to time, and have enjoyed your tutorial for the bobble shell edging on a few projects. I am timidly attempting my first ever crochet pattern for public use - fingerless mitts, you know! Anyway, I used your edging on the top of them, and wanted your permission to link to your tutorial when I post the pattern. What do you think?
Your colorful style is sometimes a lifesaver for me, here in Portland, OR where it can be downright dreary after a few weeks of regular rain. I just adore your bright, rainbow-y, stripey style! Thank you!!

This is a great little edge pattern!!!


Hi Lucy, I discovered your blog about two weeks ago and wow how I love it. Such enthusiasm, colour, vibrancy and joy you share with us. Thankyou! I'm another one of your readers who has been inspired to take up the crochet hook and create more beautiful things. I love having lots of creative things on the go and crocheting has been added to knitting, sewing, crosstich, oil painting, gardening and baking. Hope you and your family are well and enjoying summer in the Northern hemisphere.

Regards, Anne

Huge double thank you. I've just made a blanket using your lovely Summer Garden granny square pattern (in cream cotton plus lots of lovely summer colours) and this bobble edging has finished it off beautifully. thank you so much for sharing your lovely patterns.

Lucy, a friend of mine asked about your crochet work. Do you sell it? She's highly interested in buying some of your work.
