Also pictured are my other patterns for a Security Camera and a Bomb. See my other listings for these. 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!
This explosive Molotov Cocktail is knit in separate pieces and then sewn together. The bottle is knit in the round as one piece and stuffed as you go. The rag is a small flat square, and the flames are knit individually in garter stitch, using wrap & turn short rows asymmetrically on either end to give them a fiery look.
Tools needed: size 7 US (4.5mm) x 4 dpns and straight needles, stitch marker, yarn needle, stuffing
Material needed: Any yarn can be used, but to get the same colours, pattern calls for Lambs Pride Worsted in M-165 Christmas Green (70yds/65m), M-10 Cream (20 yds/20m), M-155 Lemon Drop (20 yds/20m), M-110 Orange You Glad (40yds/40m), M-107 Red Hot Passion (20yds/20m) but any yarn can be used as gauge is not important.
Suitable for an intermediate knitter.
Pattern Style: abbreviated with all abbreviations given.
Gauge: 20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches but varying the gauge is fine too.
Yardage: 170 - 200 yards total(155 - 183 m)
Finished size: 17 x 6 x 3.5"/44 x 15 x 10cm
