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

Oh, my stars – have I got a treat for you! A crochet Tic-Tac-Toe pattern that’s as fun to make as it is to play with. Confession time – I’ve got a soft spot for the classics, so crocheting this board and its lil’ Xs and Os was like a trip down memory lane. Each stitch took me back to those cozy afternoons at grandma’s house, sitting cross-legged on the carpet, playing the old-fashioned way . Ah, those were the days!

But enough about me; let’s talk game plan! Grab your favorite colors and get ready to unleash your inner game master. You’ll be using basic stitches – nothing that’ll knot up your brow. It’s ideal for beginners or anyone lookin’ to pass a chill afternoon. And when you’re done? It’ll be more than a game; it’s a keepsake.

So, hooks at the ready, stitchers! Time to make your move. Ah, the suspense… Are you feeling it too? Let’s crochet our way to Tic-Tac-Toe glory!

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.

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.
