The small bag pattern uses a combination of basic crochet skills. You begin at the bottom of the bag with a magic circle.
Then you work in the round to the top of the bag. You have the option to use the invisible join method to finish the last round.
The stitch pattern is very easy. Since you don’t join yarn, there are also only two ends to weave in at the end. There are links in the notes to various tutorials to help you on the way.

About the Inspiration for the Quick Crochet Dice Bag Pattern
I’m always on the look out for great stash busting patterns. I love to use up all my leftover skeins and scraps of yarn.
Making a handmade crochet dice bag seemed like a great way to make a dent in my stash. The best part of projects like these is that they are also so quick to make! Nothing like getting a few quick projects done!
Both of my kids love to play games. So these little bags also seemed like something they would find useful and fun!
They’re great for people who love board games. The quick crochet dice bags are the perfect size to hold a bunch of dice while still being small enough to fit in a pocket.
You can also use the bag to hold other things too like small toys, lip balm, or other small items. Since it’s a drawstring bag, you can cinch it shut so things don’t fall out.
How about using one as a super cute little gift bag?
About the Yarn
The sample dice bag is made with WeCrochet/KnitPicks Dishie in white, blue, and red. I love Dishie for a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn.
The yarn is soft and has great stitch definition. Like many yarns from WeCrochet/KnitPicks, it’s also affordably priced.
You could also use another worsted weight cotton yarn. Or pick another worsted weight yarn in acrylic or another fiber blend.
The color choice is up to you!

- Video tutorial for the magic loop method available at this post on the magic loop method. This is also sometimes called the magic ring.
- Do not turn work. Use optional stitch markers to mark the first stitch (not the beginning chains) and the last stich of each round, and move these markers up for each round. The main reason to use markers is to keep track of these stitches.
- Join each round with a slip stitch before going to next round.
- Beginning chains of each round do not count as stitches – tutorial available at this post on beginning chains.
- Invisible join method recommended for fastening off. Photo tutorial available at this post on the invisible join method.
