F Bombs For Days

One of my favorite things that I have made are these little F Bombs. Two of my best friends asked me to make them some for Christmas 2014…they wanted to include them in little gift bags that they were giving to their family members…so…I started cracking on them. There were a few variations, that I really didn’t like…like, trying to embroider the F on the side…but, then I realized, that I could just put the F in the rest of the stitches while going! It turned out delightful. And it is super easy to do! It is a great project that I like to swap to when I am frustrated or bored by what I am working on.

 

 

I used a G hook and worsted weight yarn (crafters secret)

I am writing this assuming you want to do a pink F, but you can make it any color you want! The key to the color changes is to yarn over to finish a stitch with the new color…so, insert hook, yarn over with main color, pull through, yarn over with new color, pull through both loops. Your new color is ready to go, but doesn’t show in the previous stitch. Also, do not cut your colors after each change, the ugly part will be inside, so you can just bring up or over or whatever with your color changes. If they cross and are ugly, who cares! The stuffing will hide it forever!

Rnd 18 : *SC in next 5 st, SC2TOG* 6 times (36)

Rnd 20 : *SC in next 3 st, SC2TOG* 6 times (24)

Rnd 22 : *SC in next st, SC2TOG* 6 times (12)

Rnd 23: SC in each st around (12)

Rnd 24: SC in each st around (12)

At this point, start stuffing. It should be firm. Additionally, cut a small piece of red, yellow, and orange, tie them together in a large knot, and set just inside. You will close up with the white around the “sparks” you have just created.

Rnd 25: switch to white, *SC2TOG* 6 times (6)

Rnd 26: *SC2TOG* 3 times

Weave in ends.
