The Pokémon Inspiration Part 3 ‘Deck’ Cases

IMG_6833IMG_6529-1I was taking part in an online “Crochet Challenge” and had to crochet something using UK terms, but I was having a very hard time finding patterns written in UK terms.  I scoured the internet for what seemed like ages to find a nice pattern that was written in UK terms, however it seems that the few projects I did come across were not in my taste.  So I decided to take it upon myself to do something a little different.  I’m going to “translate” a US term pattern in UK terms.

For my boys birthday we threw a Pokémon inspired theme party.  For the favours, we had decided I was going to make little (what my kids call) “pokéballs” and a little bag (like My Cute Little Bags) in the pokémon original colours of red, black and white and we are going to put some Pokémon cards in them and call them “deck sacks”.  The “deck sacks” pattern is what I’m going to translate….So here it is….

Using your H/8-5.00mm hook and working in rounds. Place a stitch marker in the last st of the rnd and move marker up at the end of each rnd.

**How to change the colour of yarn working in htc rounds.  Start by making an htc as you would normally… insert hook, pull up a loop, there should be 3 loops on your hook, but now use the new colour to pull through all 3 loops on hook.

With white yarn (A)

Rnd 1 – Ch 16, htc in 2nd ch from hook and then 1 htc across.  Work 1 extra htc in last ch. Do not turn, instead, work on bottom loops of the chain and 1 htc across working 1 extra htc in last ch. Place stitch marker (32)

Rnd 2 – 1 htc in each htc around.  Place a stitch marker (32)

Rnd 3 – 1 htc in each htc around (32)

Rnd 4 – 1 htc in each htc around (32)

Rnd 5 – 1 htc in each htc around (32)

Rnd 6 – 1 htc in each htc around (32)

Rnd 13 – 1 dc in each htc around (32)

Rnd 141 dc in next 4 dc, ch 8, skip 8 stitches, 1 dc in next 4 dc.  Repeat from * to * around (32)

Rnd 15 – 1 dc in each dc and each ch space around (32)

Rnd 16 – 1 dc in next 4 dc, 1 htc in next 8 dc, 1 dc in next 8 dc, 1 htc in next 8 htc 1 dc in next 3 dc and 1 sl st in last stitch around (32)
