We've also included a how-to of each of these crochet stitches before giving you some of our favorite patterns that use it. Many crocheters use these crochet stitch patterns interchangeably so some of these crochet patterns will look similar to others. Mostly, the bobble stitch seems to be the most textured crochet stitch out of all four.

How do we down load the whole 35 patterns and directions at one time. Have started a crochet group and several women love my bobble/cluster hats and scarves. I would like to have all these so I can teach each one what they are interested in. It is a free group, and my "students" are all seniors or disabled.
