Free Crochet Pattern for the "F-Bomb"





I have seen pictures of these F-Bombs floating around for a little while now.  I've really wanted to make them, but without an actual reason, my other priorities took precedent.  Well, I finally had someone order some of them, because, well, they are AWESOME!  I was so excited to get started, but as usual, when searching for patterns, I couldn't find one that I loved.  So in true "The Crocheting Mom" fashion, I decided to make my own!



For this pattern I like to do the F first, so that when I get to towards the top of the bomb, I can have it ready to sew one.

Ch 7, turn,
Sc in 2nd st and each one across (6)
Leave a long tail for tying onto the top

Flame
Take 8 inches of red, yellow, and orange.  Sew it through the top of the wick and knot it off.  With the remaining hanging pieces, separate the 4 plys and kind of rub them between your fingers.  They more they are blended together, the more they look like a flame.




There you have it, a perfectly made F-Bomb.  These little balls of joy are perfect for that most frustrating moment, when you still want to be professional. Throw it at a coworker, have a snowball fight of sorts, toss it at your kids when they are being jerks (just kidding, kind of!).  Whatever your need, I'm sure these bombs will help you out in many ways.  Enjoy!
