Zelda Gift/Dice Bag


I made a promise this month that I’d finally publish my pattern for a Zelda inspired Triforce gift bag. It’s my first tapestry crochet pattern, and it is deliberately super simple.

Worked with just two colours, and in single crochet stitches worked back loops only, it’s a nice place to start if you’re still new to tapestry crochet. I thought about doing a tutorial on how to do this kind of colour work, but there are so many AMAZING video tutorials out there that I didn’t think I could do it justice. So if you’re a little intimidated – don’t be! It really is simple. Take a few minutes on YouTube and you’ll be surprised at how easy it is.

Working in the back loops only I find anchors the stitches, one on top of the other. It doesn’t have the knit look of a waistcoast stitch, but it aligns each stitch in a perfect grid pattern just like in knitting, This makes for really neat patterns and colour changes, without the stitches drifting to one side.

By working BLO it also gives a different kind of texture to the fabric. Almost as if it’s ribbed, which works great for these kind of home items.

If you follow the blog, you’ll know that we’re a gamer household. So when I was trying to think of a simple, two-colour, geometric pattern to chart out Zelda instantly came to mind. Where else would you stash your Rupees than in a handcrafted crochet Triforce bag?!

The pattern is completely FREE, and comes with the colour change chart. You can of course create your own pattern using the same number of grid squares, or keep it completely plain for a simple drawstring bag. However you work it, I hope you enjoy it. And, as always, I would love if you let me know how you get on!
