There are many ways to vary these basic bobbles. Work increases on successive rows, using kfb to add two on the first row and yo, purl 1, yo on the center stitch of the following wrong-side row. Or, after the single row of increases, try working two rows even and then work the first set of decreases on the following wrong-side row (ssp and p2tog). Or put both together -- experiment! And take your favorite out for a spin on this update's featured knitting pattern, Bobbles Beyond Compare!
