Super Mario Bob-Omb

FREE CROCHET AMIGURUMI PATTERN

About this pattern:

Inspired by one of my super favourite Super Mario characters, Bob-omb! I have made this little fella using scraps I had around the house: Red Heart Super Saver yarn (acrylic) in black, and then Drops Paris yarn (cotton) in grey, yellow and white. This slightly chunkier yarn with a 4mm hook creates a tight texture and a really solid figure that should stand up on it’s own.

Materials:

  • Aran Yarn (Black, grey, white and yellow)
  • 4mm crochet hook
  • Stitch markers and pins
  • Yarn needle
  • Felt (Optional)

Stitch Abbreviations:

Sc = Single crochet
Slip st = Slip stitch
Invdec = invisble decrease
Sc2tog = single crochet decrease
Hdc2tog = half double crochet decrease
Dc2tog = double crochet decrease
BLO = back loops only
FLO = front loops only
** = a repeating stitch pattern

Measurements:

The completed piece measures approx. 15 cm tall.

Pattern Notes:

Stitches are written in standard US terms working in continuous rounds unless otherwise specified.

Let’s Get Started!

MAIN BODY

Using black yarn, working in continuous rounds

Bomb Body
Rnd 1 : Stitch 6sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2 : 2sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 3 : *sc, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (18)
Rnd 4 : *sc in next 2 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 5 : *sc in next 3 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (30)
Rnd 6 : *sc in next 4 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (36)
Rnd 7 : *sc in next 5 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (42)
Rnd 8 – 12 : sc in each stitch around. (42)
Rnd 13 : *sc in next 5 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (36)
Rnd 14 : *sc in next 4 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (30)
Rnd 15 : *sc in next 3 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 16 : *sc in next 2 stitches, invdec* Repeat 6 times (18)
Start to stuff the bomb, and continue to stuff as you go.
Rnd 17 : *sc, invdec* Repeat 6 times (12)

Do not fasten off, join grey yarn on last stitch

Bomb Cap
Rnd 18 : sc FLO in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 19 : sc in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 20 : sc BLO in each stitch around (12)
Rnd 21 : sc2tog around (6)
Fasten off.

Pull the tail end of the grey yarn down through the bomb to flatten out the cap of the bomb on the top. There should be a small opening in the top as Rnd 21 won’t have completely closed the cap. It is through this gap that the fuse will be inserted later.

EYES (Make 2)
Using white yarn:

Chain 6. Working into the 2nd chain from the hook, sc in each stitch along. (5)

Fasten off leaving a tail for joining.

FUSE
Using white yarn:

Chain 9. Working into the 2nd chain from the hook, slip st into each stitch along. (8)

Fasten off leaving a tail for joining.

FEET (Make 2)
Using yellow yarn, working in continuous rounds:

Rnd 1 : Chain 5. Working into the 2nd chain from the hook, sc in the first 3 stitches, 2sc in the last. Turn to work along the opposite side of the chain stitches. Sc again in the end stitch, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the last. (10)
Rnd 2 : 2sc in the first stitch, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the next 3 stitches, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in the last 2 stitches., (16)
Rnd 3 : sc BLO in each stitch around. (16)
Rnd 4 : sc in each stitch around (16)
Rnd 5 : sc in first 3 stitches, hdc2tog, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, hdc2tog, sc in last 4 stitches.
Fasten off and stuff.

KEY

Using yellow yarn, working in the round:

Rnd 1 : Work 4sc into a magic ring (4)
Rnd 2-3 : sc in each stitch around (4)
Rnd 4 : Chain 16. Being sure to not twist the chain stitches, skip 1 stitch from Rnd 3, and slip stitch into the next stitch. This will connect the end length of chain stitch to the body of the key to form a loop.

To finish, insert your hook through both loops of the next stitch AND one of the central chain stitches. Yarn over, pull through all three loops and finish off as if a normal sc stitch.

Fasten off.

Once you have all your pieces ready, it’s time to assemble!

ASSEMBLY

First up, take the tail end of the fuse and, using a yarn needle, pull this down through the small opening at the top of the bomb cap. Pull this through so that the fuse is sticking out from the top and the end is concealed inside the cap, and fasten off.

Attach the two eyes to the centre-front of the bomb, then attach the key to the back (directly opposite).

Sit the two feet on a flat surface and then position the bomb on top. You may want to play around a little so that he finds his ‘balance’. Once you’re happy with the positioning, pin the feet in place and attach using the tail end yarns.

And that’s it! He’s all set to be the adorable explosive you never knew you needed! 🙂

  1. Not sure if it’s just my computer but I’ve noticed this same phenomenon happening on other’s sites as well. Your first picture is superimposed over your main body text. I am only cutting and pasting to photoshop anyway (saving ink and paper) But others not doing so may not know about cutting and pasting to see it. Just wanted to give you a heads up. I’m so appreciative of a Super Mario pattern! My kids go gaga over anything Super Mario related.

    1. I’m so glad you like the pattern, let me know how you get on! 🙂

      And thanks for the heads up! I’ll try logging in from a few devices and see how it appears. There may be something in the settings I need to fiddle with. 🙂
