Garden Party Tic-Tac-Toe {Free Crochet Pattern}

What is more fun than a rousing game of Tic-Tac-Toe on a lazy Spring day? Taking it outside! After all, the weather is nice now, so who doesn't want to spend some time outdoors?

You can, of course, use whatever colors you like, but I think the bright yellow and shocking pink of the flowers make the game more vibrant and fun. The best part about this project, in my opinion, is that the game board is a bag, to hold all of the pieces. It makes it so easy to take along on picnics, trips to the park, or even just in your own backyard!

I hadn't, originally, written up a pattern for this game, as I was so new to pattern writing when I made it. When asked, I looked through my notes and jotted down some instructions and included them on my old blog. A little bout of "Spring Fever" prompted me to revisit the pattern, and seeing that it was a bit confusing, I revised it. This is a much more clear accounting of how to make the Garden Party Tic-Tac-Toe game.
