How to Crochet: a Bomb

Hey guys! I’ve got a brand new pattern today for you guys and even made a video for it! I also added these little Bob-omb’s and Bombs to the Etsy store today so check them out there!

Also there’s a new pattern up for Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi up there too for only 2.99!!


(basically any 100% cotton works)
Needle to sew in ends with

-sc = Single Crochet
-inc = Increase (sc 2 in one st)
-dec = Decrease (sc 2 together)
-hdc = Half-Double Crochet
-ch = Chain
-st = Stitch
-Rnd = Round


In color A (grey) Ch 2
Rnd 1: sc 3 in 2nd ch from the hook, in the first sc made. Don’t turn. (3)
Cut and pull through leaving a long end to sew onto the top of the bomb.

Feet (make two)
In color B (yellow) Ch 3

Rnd 1: sc 1 in second ch from the hook, 2 in the next ch. Flip over. (3)
Rnd 2: sc one in the same st you made the’s in, in next ch over (2)
I know this part seems confusing, but basically you’re just making a tiny oval by working sc’s and’s on one side of a ch, then turning the piece upside-down and working into the back side of the same ch’s. Cut leaving a somewhat long end for sewing onto the piece.

Crank (back side of Bob-omb)
In color B (yellow) Ch 5
Rnd 1: skip first two chs, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, sc in next ch, ch 1, hdc 1 and in the last ch (4)
Cut and pull through leaving a somewhat long end again for sewing onto the backside of the bob-omb.

Main part
In color C (black) Ch 2
Rnd 1: sc 6 in the second ch from the hook. Don’t turn. (6)
Rnd 2: sc 2 (inc) in each st around. (12)
Rnd 3: sc in first 3 sts, inc in next, repeat x 3 (15)
Sew on the Top part here
Rnd 4 – 6: sc in each st around (15)
Make the wick here (see video above). Sew on eyes here. See this video for instructions on how to sew on eyes.
Rnd 7: sc in first 3 sts, dec in next, repeat x 3 (12)
Sew on the Crank here
Rnd 8: dec in each st around. (6)
Sew on the Feet here.
Finish off by stuffing your piece and sewing together the bottom. See this video for instructions on how to finish off.

Done! Now you have your very own miniature Bob-omb! Don’t cause too much havoc with him.
