This Cosy is Da Bomb
The bomb is a M3A2 practice bomb and I assume from the graffiti on the sides that it was used in training around the time of the Vietnam war. It is just a shell with a head that unscrews. They used to fill these things with sand and a little gunpowder (so they could see where it lands) and use them to train soldiers to precisely bomb areas.
Fits one M3A2 practice bomb
6sts x 7 rows = 4" (10cm) in stockinette stitch.
CO 45 stitches.
Rnd 1-4: k2,p2 to end.
For the next 3 feet experiment with different stitch patterns and yarn textures. When your cosy is long enough to cover the shaft of your bomb, start the decrease.
Odd rounds: decrease 9 stitches evenly across the round.
Even rounds: k all sts.
When only 9 stitches remain, break yarn and draw it through remaining stitches.
Weave in ends.
