Dice Pouches for Everyone!

10 Sep

SHOUT OUT to my parents, who are celebrating their 34th Wedding Anniversary today!  Congratulations, Mom & daD! Here’s to 34 more years!

I intended to tell you all about my fabulous date night last night, which was supposed to involve me making my husband very happy by going to a gaming store to buy dice, followed by a delicious Indian dinner out.  Well, date night turned into a wasted trip to the hobby shop (they had only ugly, stupid dice there and I ended up ordering from Amazon while we waited for our dinner), followed by a bland Indian dinner that gave me quite a belly ache on the way home.   I’m still A Happy One, though, because in anticipation of my upcoming dice purchase, I made these:

Two cute little dice pouches – one for my husband and one for me! Adorable, no?

I used a cobble stitch to give it that bumpy, textured look.  I’m so excited about the way they turned out that I’m thinking of making a tiny army of them.  So cute!  Anyway, the pattern is written for a G hook & a very thin yarn, which will give you a bag the size of the white one above (about 3 inches in diameter & 4 inches tall).  I tried to indicate where the changes would be if you’re using a bigger hook & a bulkier yarn, which will obviously give you a slightly bigger finished product (I used a J hook for the gray bag).  Please let me know if you find any errors!

    cute!

    hey, as a request for a future post, can you please decode crochet patterns? i’m still trying to figure it out, and it isn’t helpful to look online…conflicting info is confusing to a newbie!

    Sure thing! I’ve actually been working on one, but it’s turning out to be more complicated that I originally intended… Look for it in the near future!
