Lil' Monsters Dice Bag Pattern
Right! So here is my first pattern. If you make it, please let me know! I am very curious to see if my instructions are clear enough or not.
Lil' Monsters Dice Bag
This is a very simple & easy pattern to replicate - so if you are a beginner this might be good for you :D. Also, I am pretty sure you can scale up this pattern a few sizes and it will be fine, so don't worry if you don't have the exact right size yarn & hook.
Materials= 2 colours of yarn (body & hair), felt for decorating & yarn needle
Hook = 2.5mm
Final Size = 9cm (aka- holds twelve d10s quite nicely ^_^)
CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
FO = Finish Off
Foundation Chain = CH 26
Round 1 = Turn work, skip one stitch and SC back down - at the end of the row instead of turning your work add an extra crochet into the last ST and ST around (eg - work on the other side of the foundation chain), this makes one round.
Round 2- 25 = SC in each SC around. At the end of the last round cut yarn & leave a long tail to sew back in
Round 26-28 = Switch yarn colour into hair colour & SC in each SC around.
Round 29 = SC 6, CH 6 skip 1 and crochet back down, repeat till end of round. (This will make the bag loops.)
Rounds 30-32= SC in each SC around
Round 33 = SC in each SC around - However! - also pick up the loops & add them into your SC’s by putting your hook first through the SC then the loop and pulling the yarn through.
Round 34-36 = SC in each SC around
FO and weave in all yarn endings
Turn work and SC back down the CH.
FO & tie both ends together.
Now you get to decorate your little monster (or whatever you’ve made up!) have some fun with it, normally the goofier, the better.
If you do use my pattern send me pictures (if you can)! I want to see what you make ^_^.
