Confetti Crochet Pattern

bobble and scrap strings

Confetti, sprinkles, and pom poms are among some of my favorite things. Something about the spontaneous bursts of color is so appealing to me!

I fashioned a swatch of crochet with candy colored, puffy bobble stitches that mimic the look of confetti.

You can make your own with as many (or as few) colors as you’d like. While I used 10 different shades, the pattern can easily be customized to your preferences.


Materials

  • Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in the shades: Vanilla Cream, Daffodil Yellow, Peach Orange, Ballet Pink, Mustard Yellow, Lipstick Pink, Blush Pink, Slate Gray, Slate Green, and Washed Teal
  • 3.25 mm crochet hook (This is my favorite hook.)
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors

 

Skills Needed

  • color change
  • bobble stitch
  • foundation single crochet

 

Pattern Notes

  • To find out which color of yarn I used in each bobble stitch, follow along with the chart above the written pattern.
  • This pattern is worked flat in rows.
  • The first row is made with foundation single crochet instead of a starting chain.
  • Chain 1 and turn at the end of each row. 
  • The finished piece is about 7×7 inches.

 

Abbreviations / Special Stitches (US terms)

  • ch – chain
  • bobble – bobble stitch (6 double crochet together)
  • foundation single crochet
  • sc – single crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch

  1. This is so cute, I love the little bits of color against the neutral background. Can you tell me what the back of the cloth looks like? I mean, if I was going to make a dishcloth for someone using your pattern, would I need to make a plain back to sew onto the back to hide the “guts”? Thank you for sharing this cute pattern!

    1. That’s a great question!
      This was my first completed “tapestry crochet ish” project. So the back has a little bit of color poking through but nothing too crazy.
      I actually took extra care to make sure none of the colorful pieces were too visible or unsightly. It definitely took A LOT more effort than I had expected.
      An extra layer of crochet backing might make for a cleaner finish (and could possibly even save some time?)
      I’ll update this post with a photo of the back of my work soon!
