Dice Gamer Bag
Here is a project for your favorite gamer. Do they have tons of dice and game markers lying about with no cool way to hold them? Make them this easy bag, and they will be happy! I made this one for my hubby’s birthday.
½ skein Bulky yarn – I used Lamb’s Pride
Size J (6.00 mm) crochet hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in yarn ends
Size: 4 ½” Wide by 7” tall
CH – Chain
SC – Single Chain
HDC – Half Double Crochet
This pattern is worked in the round. This technique removes the need to sew seams, and makes the edges neater. Do not join rounds. This pattern could be easily adjusted larger or smaller by changing the starting number of chains and the number of rounds worked.
Round 1: HDC in 2nd chain from the hook. HDC in next 13 CH. Continue to HDC in remaining loops on opposite side of the chain. DO NOT join with slip stitch. (28 stitches total)
Round 2: Work 1 HDC in first HDC of round one, insert stitch marker to mark new round. Continue to work 1 HDC in each HDC around. The edges will start to curve up to form the bag. (28 stitches)
Round 3 to 17: Work 1 HDC in first HDC of previous round, move stitch marker to this stitch to mark new round. Continue to work 1 HDC in each HDC around.
Round 18: Work 1 HDC in first HDC of previous round, CH 1, skip 1 HDC space, HDC in next HDC, CH 1 and continue this around
Round 19: Work 1 SC in each stitch around. Join with slip stitch to first HDC of round 18. Fasten off, weave in ends with tapestry needle. (28 stitches)
Drawstring Cord: CH 70, fasten off, weave in ends with tapestry needle. Weave the cord through the spaces left in round 18, starting near the middle of the bag and ending in the hole next to it. Adjust cord so equal lengths show on each side, pull tight and tie bow.
