What is a bobble stitch in knitting?

What does bobble mean in knitting?

You make bobbles (see the following figure) by increasing several stitches in a single stitch and then knitting back and forth on them before binding off, creating a knob on the surface of the fabric. The more stitches you increase in a single stitch and the more rows you work on them, the larger the bobble.
