Why “bomb bag?” Because the first one I ever made was in brown and looked just like the bomb bag from Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I’ve made about twelve of these, now, never the same twice, and it takes about three hours in total. I finally got around to actually writing down a pattern, of sorts. They aren’t completely tested by anyone but myself, so if you find an error, hit me up. Below, a pattern for the smaller of the bags appearing in the picture above. Check back later for the pattern for the larger one.
Small Bomb Bag
Hook: I-9 (5.50 mm)
Yarn: Red Heart Classic worsted weight in Rambling Rose
Eggshell for the tie
- Chain 3’s and chain 2’s count as stitch.
- Worked in rows. Slip stitch in top of chain 3/chain 2 at the end of a row.
Round 1: 12 dc in magic circle (I never don’t use a magic circle when working in the round from scratch, so I’m not 100% sure what the alternative “chain x, work x stitches in chain” would be.)
Round 2: chain 3, *[2dc, dc], repeat * around
Round 3: chain 4, tc, 2tc in each stitch around
Round 4: chain 4, 2tc, *[tc, 2tc], repeat * around
Round 5-6: chain 4, tc around
Round 7: chain 4, tc2tog around This is the row where the tie will be threaded through, so there’ll be a little bit of a gap between each stitch.
Round 8: chain 4, tc, 2tc around
Round 9: chain 2, sc around
Weave in ends.
Row 1: chain 142
Row 2: sc starting in second stitch from hook, 140 sc back to the other end
Weave in ends.
