Bobble Stitch

My pattern says to Make Bobble 2 (MB2) by [K1, p1 tbl] 3 times in next st. Does this mean to K1 tbl then p1 tbl in the same (next) stitch and then do it two more times in that same stitch?

thats right. you end up with 6 stitches where there was previously one. it is this massive increase that causes the bobble (assuming there is a rapid decrease on that or the next rows to compensate).

It looks like you should knit one regularly then purl one through the back of the loop 3 times each for a total of 6 stitches.

Yep. Bobbles are rapid increases (like this, which is six stitches where you had one) followed, in a row or so later, by a rapid decrease (so you end up with one again instead of six). The extra stitches have no room to go, so they puff out in the bobble.

I’m so grateful for the responses. I appreciate the advice.
