Cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Thread tail onto tapestry needle. Slip stitches off the knitting needles onto the tapestry needle and run them through with the long tail. Cinch all the stitches up tightly to close the top. Weave in cast on tail.
To make a bobble, either follow the video tutorial found here or works as follows:
When you come to the bobble stitch, work a knit stitch into it. Then without pulling the stitch off the left needle, also work a stitch into the back loop. Then still without pulling the stitch off the left needle, also work another stitch through the front loop.
Turn the work and purl back three stitches to the beginning of the bobble.
Turn the work again and knit back to the end of the bobble.
Take the two extra stitches created at the beginning of the bobble and slip them up and over the current stitch.
Continue on with the rest of the pattern, making sure to cinch up the next knit stitch nice and tight to make the bobble stand out.
