Hook Your Game On: Tic-Tac-Toe Free Crochet Pattern

Hello everyone, today I’ve prepared a truly unique pattern for you all – a tic-tac-toe game! Can you believe it? I surely couldn’t, which is why I just had to share it on our site. Who doesn’t remember this childhood game? It’s giving me a real nostalgia trip.

But enough of the reminiscing, let’s get down to business. We will need two hook sizes, 4 colors, scissors, and a couple of buttons. We’ll start with the game board itself, embroidering the squares. Then, we’ll make the second part of the board and join them together. Next, we’ll need to work on the game pieces – we’ll be making fish, but feel free to use your imagination for these.

And just like that, a fun toy will be ready!

Tic-Tac-Toe tips 1

Embroider a grid on the top square (11 cm x 11 cm) with the dark blue thread. The lines from the right and left are 6 sts away from the edge. The distance between the two lines in the middle is 7 sts. In the upper, lower and middle field, there are 3 rows each. The vertical lines are started from the top in the row where the ch-stitches from the beginning are.

Tic-Tac-Toe tips 2

Place the top and bottom squares on top of each other (buttonhole placket overlaps at the top), and sew them together on the left and right side with a turquoise thread.

Tic-Tac-Toe tips 3

Sew two small buttons (between 1 cm and 1.5 cm) on the back. The buttons must be sewn approximately 3 cm from the edge and should fit well into the buttonholes.

Tic-Tac-Toe tips 4

Sew all threads.
