Free Crochet Pattern: Bomb Pop Pen Cozy

Happy National Bomb Pop Day!

I know the day is almost over, but, to be honest, I had no idea it was National Bomb Pop Day until I was already at work and saw someone post about it on my Instagram feed!

I made these Bomb Pop Pen Cozies last year, and now you can make some, too! I don’t have step-out photography, so hopefully some of you will be able to follow along just with text. When I get the chance to shoot step-out photography, I’ll probably remove the pattern from my blog and then put it in my Etsy shop. Please enjoy it until then!

Popsicle Stick:

With I hook and Beige, ch 5 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Work 5 sc into ring and continue to work sc evenly in a spiral, without joining rounds, until your tube is 5 inches long. Try it on the pen before breaking off, making sure it’s neither too short nor too long. Sl st to next st to join. Break off and use your tapestry needle to draw up loops from the remaining 5 sts and pull closed. The other end has the opening to insert the pen.

 

Popsicle:

With H hook and Red, make magic circle, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: 6 sc. Don’t join.

Rnd 2: (2 sc) 6 times. Sl st to next st to join, but not too tightly since you’ll need to work in it like a regular stitch later. – 12 sts

Rnd 3: in BLO, sc evenly – 12 sts

Rnd 4: working in both loops again, sc evenly – 12 sts

Rnd 5: [(2 sc), sc] 6 times – 18 sts

Rnd 6: [(2 sc), 5 sc] 3 times – 21 sts

Rnd 7: hdc evenly – 21 sts

Rnds 8-12: [2 FPhdc, 1 BPhdc] 7 times. – 21 sts

  • Drop Red. Join White. Start stuffing as you change each color.

Rnds 13-17: [2 FPhdc, 1 BPhdc] 7 times. – 21 sts

  • Drop White. Join Blue.

Rnds 18 – 22: [2 FPhdc, 1 BPhdc] 7 times. – 21 sts

Rnd 23: Sc evenly. Sl st to next st to join. – 21 sts

Rnd 24: In BLO, inv dec 10 times. There is only 1 stitch left in the rnd, but work one more inv dec using the last st and the one following it anyway for a total of 11 decreases. Sl st to next st to join. – 10 sts.

  • Break off leaving approx. 18 inches of yarn for sewing.

Weave in all other ends.

 

Assembly:

  • Finish stuffing Rocket Pop, not super firmly, but firmly enough to maintain the shape.
  • Insert Popsicle Stick (with pen inside) about 1.5 inches. Make sure there is some stuffing at very bottom of the Popsicle around the opening and around the end of the Popsicle stick, or else the Popsicle Stick will be really wiggly. You want to give it a good foundation, and you don’t want loose, floppy, falling over pen cozies. Getting into stuffing into this spot can be tricky once the Stick is in.
  • Use the Popsicle yarn tail to sew Popsicle to Popsicle Stick.

    Awesome pattern! Working in it now! Blue rounds should say 13-17, I believe. And then adjusting from there. Thanks for sharing this free of charge

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Thank you! Looks like round count was all over the place. I didn’t have time to really go over the pattern before posting, but I had a crochet assistant work the pattern last year and she never said anything 😛

    *sorry, white

  5. Brandi says:

    Thank you so much for a fun new pattern! For once I actually have the colors I need on hand so I can make it right away. I noticed that there is a skip in the rounds from 18 -21, is this a numerical typo or is a step missing?
    Sorry for nitpicking on a free pattern, I want mine to look similar to yours.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Hi, I’m not sure what you mean by the skip? Also I updated the pattern earlier today as the round count was actually off in a lot of it, so it might be ok now. Let me know!

    The materials used calls for an I hook and an H hook. The pattern starts out using the I hook however I don’t see where the H hook Is used.

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent and wonderful patterns.
