If you’re anything like me, you have 58 dozen sets of dice for tabletop and card games. I attended the pre-release for Magic the Gathering: Shadows Over Innistrad last weekend, and realized that most of my dice ended up bouncing around the bottom of my bag. I vowed to change that in time for the arrival of my new booster packs!

I’m one of those gamers who likes a little bit of everything. Consoles, PC, tabletop, I am there with bells on and ready to jam. I grew up with brothers playing Magic, but I started really getting into it about 6 months ago, when a friend sucked me into the glorious universe of card collecting. In 6 months, I have amassed 2 shoeboxes, not including the 12 boosters that arrived yesterday. Oops.

So last weekend, I went to the pre-release tournament at the local hobby shop. I did okay: won two matches, and lost two matches (although I was very close to winning one of those). Pretty decent for a tournament noob, I think. I discovered one of my fave cards in my pre-release set: the Quilled Wolf.

Some people have disregarded the Quilled Wolf, but it won me three games, so I disagree. It’s a cheap casting cost, and can become devastating later on, especially if you manage to get the “Haunted Cloak” artifact on the board. 6/6 with trample, haste, and vigilance. Devastating. My other fave from this set so far, I got in my boosters that arrived yesterday. I love a rare, don’t you?

Aside from looking a lot like George Clooney, this card is siiiiiick. If you build a solid deck, you could be an impenetrable mass of unholy terror – especially if you can make him hexproof and indestructible. Aw. Yes. Tempted to get a couple more of these guys to build a deck to crush all others: one card to rule them all, and in the darkness, eat them for lunch.

Anyway, back to the pattern – it’s super simple, even beginners can do it. It’s a basic basket construction, with a flap closure. It fits a lot of dice, and only uses a small amount of yarn – a stashbuster!
I used DK weight yarn and a 3.5 mm hook. You’ll also need a button, a tapestry needle, and oddments of yarn or embroidery thread to make a design.

The pattern

Make a magic ring with 10 sc (UK dc) stitches.
Round 2: 2 sc (UK dc) into each stitch. ย (20 stitches)
Round 3: Sc, 2 sc into next stitch, repeat until the end (30 stitches)
Round 4: 2 sc, 2 sc into next stitch, repeat until end of round (40 stitches)
Work 1 sc in each stitch across the round until the bag measures 2.5 inches tall.
On the next round after you reach the required height, work 12 stitches, chain one, and turn. You will not be working these 12 stitches back and forth to create the flap, working 1 sc into each stitch. Continue in this manner until the flap measures about 1.75 inches, and tie off.
To make the button loop: chain 10, tie off, and sew into the flap. Sew the button on as required, and cross stitch any design over the top. Obviously, I wanted to match the back of a magic card:

Voila! You can make one of these in an evening. Now my dice are safe and sound, bouncing around in my gaming bag along with three decks that I built this week, extra card sleeves, my camera, and some other random stuff.
