I am not sure if this stitch existed before. It seems to me I have seen it some place but I cannot recall where so I cannot claim it to be my own.
The Long name I give it is the Front & Back Bobble because it is worked in the front lp then the back lp of each st.
Sample of Front Back Bobble
*Yo, insert hook in back lp of next st, draw up a lp, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook, yo, insert hook in front lp of same st from the inside to the front, not from the front of the stitch. Yo draw up a lp, yo draw through 2 lps on hook,* yo and draw through all 3 lps on hook. This completes the stitch.
How to increase using this stitch. Work the above instructions twice in the same two lps of the same stitch.
How to decrease using this stitch.
Rep the above directions bet **. Then Insert hook in next st through both lps and draw up a lp. Then yo and draw through 2 lps on hook, yo and draw through all 3 lps on hook.
