Malena Straight from Straight Hooked Itaught herself to crochet in 2003 to make a blanket for her mother, and she has rarely put her hook down since. She crocheted well over a hundred blankets before realizing there was so much more you could do with crochet. After many years of encouragement from her husband, Malena launched her website in November of 2018 and began designing fashionable accessories for the modern trendsetter. She has had her biggest year of pattern releases in 2020, with 14 patterns published and still more to come. She loves creating gorgeous items using stitches that look complicated, but are easy to master. Malena’s goal is to write patterns that are easy to understand and fun to work up.

Malena’s signature stitch is the Dolphin Stitch. It’s a very versatile stitch that’s fun to make, works up quickly, and creates fabulous texture.

Notes

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • The ch3 at the beginning of a row is counted as a dc.
  • When counting stitches per row, the ch1 counts as a stitch
  • Each row is labeled right side (rs) or wrong side (ws). Pay attention to the pattern as you will be working on the right side more than the wrong side.  
  • Your bobble stitches will always be on the right side of your project. If they try to pop backwards, just give them a little poke with your finger to make them face out on the right side.
  • Each row will be labeled front loop only or back loop only. Each st in the row will be placed in either the front or back loop, as indicated. This creates the additional texture between bobble stitch rows.
