I am knitting a baby bobble jacket and the directions say to Mb. The abbreviations say that this means "work k1,p1,k1,p1,k1, into next st, turn, p5, turn, k5, pass 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th st over first and off the needle." Does this mean that I k1,p1,k1,p1,k1 all into one stitch, turn and purl those 5 stitches that I just knit or 5 separate individual stitches? I have never knit a bobble before. Thanks.

I don't want to confuse you, but I found the bobble on the Apple Tree Blanket fairly easy. It involved another step , but seemed easier and made a compact bobble. Same number of stitches involved. You might want to try it both ways on some scrap yarn.

MB =
(K1, P1, K1, P1, K1) all into next st, turn, P5, turn, sl 1, K1, psso, K1, K2tog,
turn, P3, turn, slip 2 sts, K1, pass 2 slipped sts over.
