Thanks to discussion on the Valentine's CAL thread, I came up with this little bag, even before I saw Darski's delightful design (Love to Tic tac toe). Thought I'd post it here to share with you all. Feel free to use this pattern for personal use, gifts, fundraisers, KristieMN's toy drive, etc...(Just remember that it's my pattern :) Thanks)

Game Pieces on...
(For the hearts in the picture, I used this pattern)

Oh...you need WW yarn for the tote, and I used sport weight for the game pieces...A 4.0mm hook for the tote, and a 3.5 mm hook for the pieces... here goes

Tote:
With MC Ch 22
1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each rem ch. (21sc) Turning to work in free loops of beg chain, sc in each rem loop. (42 sc total) Join, Turn

2. Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join, Turn. (42 sts)

3. Repeat step 2 for a total of 23 rounds.

4. Ch 1, sc in first 5 sts. Ch 11, skip 11 sts, sc in next 10 sts. Ch 11, skip 11 sts, sc in last 5 sts. Join, turn.

5. Ch 1, sc in each sc and chain around (42). Join, Do NOT turn.

6. Ch 1, rsc (crab st) in each st around. Join. FO

7. With CC of choice, surface chain (or embroider) tic-tac-toe grid on front of bag...(should be working in every 7th vertical and every7th horizontal row, to keep it even)

8. Turn bag inside out to weave in tails.

Flower:
1. Magic circle (or Chain 2) 5 sc into circle (or 2nd ch from hook).
2. (sl st, 2 dc, sl st) in each sc around. (5 petals)

Make 5 flowers in one color, 4 in another color.

Other small motifs could also be used. You can also skip steps 4 & 5, and sew in a zipper if you prefer...

Enjoy!

I have a souple of questions on the Surface Chain, do you use a smaller hook same size hook?
And do slip st. in the front or thru the back? I Googled a tutorial and couldn't quite figure the proper way to do it(at least for me).

Sorry...

I love yours.

Simple is definitely better.

When in doubt... make a hat.      And feel free to *pin* me.

I have seen tic-tac-toe sets with a bag for the pieces, but I have never seen one with the bag doubling as the game board. Very clever.

I sure like the Valentine's theme of yours, too.

jaye, I'll try to answer your question clearly...but it's almost bedtime, :blush so I hope I don't make it worse. I start with the (same size) yarn on the inside of the bag (wrong side of the project). I pull a loop up through the first hole, twist it, insert my hook through the next hole, catch the yarn with the hook and pull it back through the hole and the loop on the hook...pulling it tight, with the twist in the first loop seems to knot it sufficiently. Then it's pretty straight-forward; hook down through next desired hole (space between stitches, whatever), catch yarn, pull up and through...keep going...it looks like a chain, and it's attached to your work. When you get to the last st, cut a longish tail, pull it through everything. Bring hook to back, pull tail Back through last hole worked.

After you have the whole board done (4 lines), that's when I turn the bag inside out and start weaving tails.
HTH, not make it worse... :)
