Stitch Question

Hi all,

I’m new to this forum but I like what I see so far.

I have a quick question. I’m knitting a baby sweater which has a lace stitch. The instruction is as follows M.B, k9, rep from. I have checked all of my knitting resources and I can not find a definition for M.B. (and the pattern doesn’t explain it)

The glossary on this website has MB which means make a bobble but I’m pretty sure this is not the stitch I need since the sweater has no bobbles.

If anyone knows what this might be…please help.


Usually that that does mean `Make Bobble’. Do you have a link to the pattern, or at least a picture?

the only thing I can think of is maybe it’s make one below, but I’d need to see the pattern to know. Can you link us to it?

The pattern is from a book I’ve had for several years. I’ve attached a picture of the sweater and here are the first few rows of the part of the pattern that starts the lace design.

1st row:[RS facing]k4, *M.B., k9, rep from * to lst 5 sts, M.B. k4
2nd row and every alt row: P to end.
3rd row K2, (k2tog,yo)1 time, k1, yo, sl 1, k1, psso, k5, k2 tog, yo, reo from to last 5 sts, k 1, (yo, sl 1, k1, psso) 1 time, k2

Thanks for the help!

Okay yes, there is kind of a bobble there at the bottom of the Vs. Doesn’t the pattern give you any clue… Up in the notes or explanation of sts?

No…It doesn’t have any directions for making a bobble.

What’s the name of the book? Maybe someone else will have it.

Are you sure there’s no refereance to maybe another page in the book that says how to make that bobble? Maybe theres a stitch definiation page at the end/beginning of the book?

Thanks for your help…I found a card that I was missing with the abbrev. and the instructions I needed for making a bobble.
