    Crochet Bobble Stitch (a.k.a. Puff Stitch) , I have been crocheting since age 8 and always have known the puff stitch is not the bobble stitch and vice versa. A bobble is 3-4 dcs in te same stitch half done then yo, pull through all loops on the hook, and a puff stitch is to yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull up a loop, yo, etc up to 4- 5 loops with a yarn over between the yos then you draw through all loops on the hook and ch 1 to secure them. And no they are not the same stitches at all.
