This drawstring bag was designed for holding polyhedral dice for roleplaying games, but can be used for many other purposes. The design showcases beautiful stripes in contrasting colors circling the bag and is perfect for sport fans or University alumni. When completed, this bag can hold 9 polyhedral dice sets and is approximately 6 inches by 5 inches flat.

Notes before you start:
● This pattern is worked in joined rounds and is in US Terminology.
● I use a large, front holed button to help secure the cord closing. You can opt to just tie the bag closed.
● Consider the beginning chain 2 as the first stitch of each round.

Materials & Notions:
● Approximately 30 yards of WW yarn in main color (MC), 30 yards of WW yarn in contrasting color (CC); 2 yards of DK weight yarn for the cord to close the bag.
● 4.0mm (Size G) Hook, 2.25mm (Size B) Hook. If you typically have a tight gauge, you may want to go up to a 5.00mm hook.
● Yarn Needle to sew in ends.
● Optional: button--making sure the button holes are large enough to pull the cord through (I use 2.0-2.5mm front holed buttons for the cord closure).

Techniques Used:
● Magic Ring, Half double Crochet, Single Crochet, Double Crochet, Slip Stitch, working in joined rounds.
● Colorwork (brief tutorial in pattern)
