Vines & Bobbles Square Block
©2021 Handmade by Stacy J
The Vines & Bobbles Block is a block that I designed for the Charity Cozy MAL with Hortense of Knitting with Chopsticks and Noorain with Noors Knits. The block is part of a collaboration with many other designers to create a charity afghan with a large portion of the proceeds of the pattern sales going to the non-profit foundation Cure Childhood Cancer. As a cancer survivor myself, I felt a real connection to this cause and really wanted to be part of this collaboration.

This square is for the experienced knitter, but there is also a video tutorial to help you out if you need assistance. The bobbles are worked with a crochet method, however you can work your preferred method of bobbles if the crochet method isn't something that you're comfortable with. I do encourage the use of a life line after each pattern repeat.
