The d-20 is done!  and, if you ask me, it looks awesome!!!!  After figuring out the equilateral triangle, it worked up rather quickly!  Find my own special pattern below!!

d-20 Pattern

Materials:
two colors of yarn of your choice
size G hook
tapestry needle for finishing off
stuffing

Tip: leave long strings at the ends for ease in assembling and weaving the ends in.

Equilateral Triangle (make 20)

*edited to add* for this pattern, it is always assumed that you will chain 1 and turn at the end of each row.  I have updated the initial chain to include this.  Thanks to whoever it was who left me that note informing me of the error!!!*

Chain 21
R1: start with sc in 2nd ch, sc in each ch (20 sc)
R2: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 16, dec in last 2 sc (18sc)
R3: sc across (18sc)
R4: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 14, dec in last 2 sc (16sc)
R5: sc across (16sc)
R6: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 12, dec in last 2 sc (14sc)
R7: sc across (14sc)
R8: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 10, dec in last 2 sc (12sc)
R9: sc across (12sc)
R10: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 8, dec in last 2 sc (10sc)
R11: sc across (10sc)
R12: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 6, dec in last 2 sc (8sc)
R13: sc across (8sc)
R14: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 4, dec in last 2 sc (6sc)
R15: sc across (6sc)
R16: dec in first 2 sc, sc in next 2, dec in last 2 sc (4 sc)
R17: sc across (4sc)
R18: dec in first 2 sc, dec in last 2 sc (2sc)
R19: dec in remaining 2 sc, FO.

take 5 triangles, connect at top two sides of triangle to form a 5 sided pyramid.  make four of these, then connect, leaving one side open for stuffing.  Fill to your decided firmness, sew last edge, fo.

  1. I keep getting stuck on the first row. Is it a given that you chain one before going onto the next row?

    1. Yes. This is meant to be a large scale die, as a stuffed toy for a child. :)

    3. You could probably decrease the size if you went with steel hooks and crochet thread. You could also start with fewer in your chain and start in the pattern where your number of chains match the number of stitches across. :)

    4. I've actually been drafting it and I found a way to ensure that you will not end up with a ball if you over stuff it. if you use the plastic canvas used for needle work as a guide for the numbers like draw on the numbers backwards of course then sew the numbers on the plastic canvas will hold the shape its a work in progress but I think its a good idea I will definitely let you know if it works out
