Free Pattern: Rearview Mirror Hanging Dices

Rearview Mirror Hanging Dices 1

This pattern is same as on my old pattern Amigurumi Dice. I’ve reduced the Rounds to 6 and filled them with styrofoam to create smaller and firmer dices.

Materials and Tools needed:

  1. Acrylic or Cotton yarn e.g. Lane Cervinia Caprice / King Kole Bamboo cotton  / King Cole Smooth DK in Black and White colours
  2. Hook 2.00mm
  3. Stuffing material  i.e. styrofoam or soft foam cut into 5-5.5cm3 (2in3) cube
  4. Pin as a stitch marker used for indicating the end of the previous row
  5. Embroidery needle
  6. Scissors
  • Finished Size: approximately  6cm3 (2 ½ in3)
  • All instructions and abbreviations are given in American (US) terms.
  • Work in continuous rounds without turning unless otherwise specified in the pattern.

Make six squares

Rnd 1: sc × 6 into adjustable ring.  Total 6sts

Rnd 2: (2sc inc) × 6. Total 12sts

Rnd 3:  (3sc inc, sc × 2) × 4. Total 20sts

Rnd 4: sc, (3sc inc, sc × 4) × 3, 3sc inc, sc × 3. Total 28sts

Rnd 5: sc × 2, (3sc inc, sc × 4) × 3, 3sc inc, sc × 4. Total 36sts

Row 6: sc × 4, fasten off, leaving a tail of 20cm (8in).

Once you’ve made 6 squares start connecting them with the tail left on each square.

DICEWhile you connecting the squares start stitching Colonial Knots where the number-dots should be by using embroidery needle and double strand of white yarn. Picture on the side indicates the sequence of the number-dots. You can also use small buttons as an alternative for the dots.

Before finishing the connection of the squares place in the styrofoam or soft foam cube.
