Free pattern! Whee! I promised you a few holdover freebie while I’m getting through a sweater design that’s slowing down the dragons, and here’s the first of the bunch!

Keldan's Dice Bag

Druid’s Dice Bag of Tippy Toes +1 (Click image to download pattern PDF.)

This dice bags houses the luck-wielding devices of a level 4 half-elf druid named Keldan. His finest moment in battle was an inspired transmutation in which he turned into an enormous tree, holding a door shut against a boss and her outsider minions for three full rounds while our barbarian tank gathered her wits. He is very good with brambles and his hawk companion, Fara, has been known to save the party from doom with a well-aimed swipe of her talons.

Techniques you might need for this pattern!

Adjustable Loop Cast-On

Yes, this is a crochet technique. Just pop the crocheted stitches onto your needles as you make them. It works, I promise, and when you finish, you’ll be able to cinch that bad boy nice and tight.

I-cord

Nothing too fancy about this i-cord, but if you haven’t worked it before, learning from a video if much easier than learning from written instructions.
