I hope these instructions aren't too confusing.  When there are directions in parentheses ()...and a number afterwards, such as "6 times" - you will do the complete instructions inside the parentheses, a total of 6 times.
For example, row 27 will be worked as follows:
k3, p10, (<work bobble>, k1, <work bobble>, k1, <work bobble> k1, <work bobble>, k1, <work bobble>, k1, <work bobble>, k1), p8, k3
Bobble directions:
(k1, p1, k1, p1, k1) into same stitch to make 5 stitches from one.  Then pass 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th stitches, one at a time, over the first stitch.
