A few months ago, I had a special and unique order for “F-bombs.” They are super cute, soft crochet stuffed “bombs” with a letter F on them. I wasn’t able to find a pattern that matched closely enough to what was desired, so I made up a new one myself.
MC: Main Color yarn
CC: Contrasting Color yarn
Sc: Single Crochet
Hdc: Half Double Crochet
Dc: Double Crochet
inc – increase (2 sc in one stitch)
dec – decrease (sc 2 together; see Pattern Notes)
Sl st: Slip stitch
FO: Fasten off
You will need:
Size G/4mm crochet hook
yarn in “bomb” color (main) and “fuse” color (contrasting)
embroidery thread and needle
You can find tutorials on YouTube for how to make a magic ring/circle and how to whip stitch.
You will be crocheting in spirals.
When decreasing, I use the invisible decrease technique; you can find tutorials on YouTube for how to do this, or you can also just do a regular single crochet decrease.

Sew top together to finish off. Join with starting tail, knot, and hide in bomb. Cut off excess tails.
Ch 8, sl st into middle of top of bomb. Leave a long tail.
Thread yarn through each stitch through to the end, knot and cut off with 1” extra length.
Cut a capital letter F out of a piece of felt of the color of your choice. Whip stitch it to the center of the bomb using the same color embroidery thread as the F. Join with starting tail, knot, and hide in bomb. Cut off excess tails.
