This listing is for a PDF pattern to knit a bomb.
Go off with a bang with this piece of 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
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. The gauge this one was worked at is: 20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches/10cm, on US Size 7/ 4.5 mm double pointed needles.
This pattern is for personal use only, and may not be used to make items for sale.
I like knitting weaponry and this pattern is part of a series I designed of various patterns for knitted artifacts of violence and war. These are all the bombs we need - knitted ones!
