Evan’s 8 Pocket Dice Bag

New FREE Crochet Pattern!

Y’all I am so freaking excited to share my newest Dice Bag Storage Free Crochet Pattern with you! I have been wanting to make a dice bag with POCKETS like forever! I just needed the right moment and inspiration for how to do the pockets and here it is!! I love how it turned out, and I hope you will find the pattern simple to make and the construction easy and straight forward to follow!! I hope y’all will fall in love with making this pattern too!

I want to say a big thank you to Furls Crochet for the opportunity to bring Evan’s 8 Pocket Dice Bag Pattern to life! I am so thrilled to get to participate in the Furls Blog Hop 2023, and create my pocket dice bag pattern for this amazing event!

I am so appreciative of their generous gift of the gorgeous Furls Wander Acrylic Yarn I used to design this fabulous pocket dice bag pattern to share with y’all! I cannot say enough good things about this yarn. From the fabulous array of gorgeous colors from brights to pastels to neutrals there is something for everyone! The yarn is both soft and sturdy, with a really pretty sheen. I would highly recommend trying Furls Wander yarn for yourself for this pattern, or another one just try it!! 🧶 

I also got the chance to work with one of my favorite crochet hooks from Furls – the Streamline Resin – in my zodiac sign too – Sagittarius is a gorgeous blend of purple, yellow, a hint of glitter and so much shimmer! This hook is beautiful to look at and much fun to work with, one of my favorites to use for acrylic yarn – so the combination of the Streamline Resin hook and the Wander Acrylic yarn was so satisfying! But don’t just take my word for it, try them out for yourself!

    EVAN’S 8 POCKET DICE BAG:

    Pattern Directions:

    USING G/6 4.0 MM HOOK

    DICE BAG:

    Round 1: Make a Magic Circle with Main Color. Ch 1, 8 hdc in magic circle, sl st to join, (8 hdc).

    Round 2: Ch 1, 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to join, (16 hdc).

    Round 3: Ch 1, [hdc, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (24 hdc).

    Round 4: Ch 1, [hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (32 hdc).

    Round 5: Ch 1, [hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (40 hdc).

    Round 6: Ch 1, [hdc in next 4 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (48 hdc). 

    Round 7: Ch 1, [hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (56 hdc).

    Round 8: Ch 1, [hdc in next 6 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (64 hdc).

    Round 9: Ch 1, [hdc in next 7 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (72 hdc).

    Round 10: Ch 1, [hdc in next 8 sts, 2 hdc in next st,] 8 times, sl st to join, (80 hdc).

    Rounds 11-26: Ch 1, hdc in each st around, sl st to join, (80 hdc, 16 rounds).

    Round 27: Ch 1, [hdc in next 2 sts, ch 2, skip next 2 sts,] 20 times, sl st to join, (20 ch-2 sps, 40 hdc).

    Round 28: Ch 1, [hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in ch-2 sp,] 20 times, sl st to join, (80 hdc).

    Round 29: Ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join, (80 sc). 

    Round 30: Ch 1, sl st in each st around, sl st to join, (80 sl sts). FO and weave in ends. Set aside and work the pocket panel.

    POCKET PANEL:

    The pocket panel is worked in joined rounds and will look like the yoke of a sweater. You will be creating 8 ch-1 sps in each round that will be where you place stitches to create the 8 pockets on the finished bag.

    Round 1: Ch 64 with Contrast Color, sl st to join being careful not to twist, ch 1, hdc in next 4 chs, ch 1 (do not skip a st), [hdc in next 8 chs, ch 1,] 7 times, hdc in last 4 chs, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 64 hdc).

    The ch-1 sps create a “hidden” stitch right after the ch-1. It’s “hidden” because the top loops blend with the ch-1. This st is skipped in R2-11 so that the (hdc, ch-1, hdc) worked in each ch-1 sp only increases the st count by 1 st per pocket, and 8 st per round.

    Round 2: Ch 1, hdc in next 4 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 7 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 72 hdc).

    Round 3: Ch 1, hdc in next 5 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 8 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 80 hdc).

    Round 4: Ch 1, hdc in next 6 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 9 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 88 hdc).

    Round 5: Ch 1, hdc in next 7 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 10 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 96 hdc).

    Round 6: Ch 1, hdc in next 8 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 11 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 104 hdc).

    Round 7: Ch 1, hdc in next 9 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 12 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 112 hdc).

    Round 8: Ch 1, hdc in next 10 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 13 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 120 hdc).

    Round 9: Ch 1, hdc in next 11 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 14 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 128 hdc).

    Round 10: Ch 1, hdc in next 12 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 15 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 136 hdc).

    Round 11: Ch 1, hdc in next 13 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp, [skip next st, hdc in next 16 sts, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in ch-1 sp,] 7 times, skip next st, hdc in last 3 sts, sl st to join, (8 ch-1 sps, 144 hdc).

    Round 12: Ch 1, sl st in each st and ch-1 sp around, sl st to join, (145 sl st). FO and weave in the ends.

    JOINING THE POCKET PANEL AND BAG:

    SEWING POCKET PANEL INTO BAG:

    STEP 1: Turn the bag inside out, line up R1 of the pocket panel with R8 of the bag on the inside. TIP: I highly recommend loosely weaving a piece of brightly colored yarn through the stitches of R8 first. This makes it much easier to keep the rounds lined up and make sure you’re stitching in the correct round while you’re working. Just make sure to pull out the marking yarn as you go so you don’t accidentally stitch through it.

    STEP 2: Stitch all the way around the bottom of the pocket panel at R1, working each stitch through the pocket panel and stitching it together through each st of R8 of the bag, using a running stitch or back stitch. The stitches will show through the bag at R8 so you can opt to show the contrast color, or use the bag color to make the stitches. Weave in the ends.

    SEWING INDIVIDUAL POCKETS:

    STEP 1: Mark every 10 stitches (8 marked sts) on R20 of the bag, lining these marked stitches up with the ch-1 sps on the pocket panel. I like to use locking stitch markers which can easily hold the two pieces together.

    STEP 2: Stitch pocket panel and bag together to form the pockets. Stitch a line up working from R1-R12 of the pocket panel. Work your stitches through the ch-1 sps of each round and ending with the corresponding marked stitch. For extra stability you may want to use a back stitch – where you work back down the line of stitches a second time, working in the spaces in between the prior stitches. FO and weave in ends. These stitches will be visible on the outside of the bag, so choose your yarn color accordingly.

    STEP 3: Repeat Step 2 for each pocket edge a total of 8 times, working to line up the ch-1 sps and marked stitches.

    DRAWSTRINGS: (Make 2)

    STEP 1: Ch 140, FO and trim ends.

    STEP 2: Weave drawstring through the spaces R27, and knot the ends together. Repeat with the other drawstring, weaving through the same holes, but place the knotted ends on the opposite side. Pull both knotted ends away from the center to cinch the bag.
