The Bomb



Yay, I put a new pattern up, and its free! More explosive knitting!
It is a simple pattern, starting with the bomb itself. This is knitted in the round from the top down, with paired increases, a straight section and then paired decreases. The bomb-top is knitted in a similar way but as a flat disk, then sewn in place. The fuse and sparks are worked in I-cord and then sewn together.

Finished size: 5”/13cm diameter
Yarn: The pattern is written for a worsted/aran weight yarn, but gauge is not important – you could use any size yarn. The important thing is to use needles a size smaller than normal. This means the stuffing won’t show through.
Worsted weight yarn in black (60yds/50m), white (6yds/6m), yellow (4yds/4m), orange (4yds/4m) and red (4yds/4m).
I used Lamb’s Pride Worsted in M-05 Onyx, M-10 Cream, M-155 Lemon Drop, M-110 Orange You Glad and M-107 Red Hot Passion.

Other materials: 4.5mm/UK/US Size 7 dpns, Stitch marker, Yarn needle, Stuffing
Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rows to 4”/10cm in stocking st on 4.5mm/Size 7 needles
Its free to download. You can download it here:

Enjoy!
