Project Note:

• The only stitch used is single crochet. After the first line, I stopped writing sc but it is used for the entire pattern.
• The numbers on the top and bottom of a dice usually add up to 7. I did this for the first number block. On the second number block, the two numbers should add up to 18. There is a diagram below with how it should be laid out.
• Every row of every square will have 15 stitches across. Each block will have 17 rows.
• After number 1 and 2, I did not write ch 1 and turn. It will only state the number of stitches for each color. You will still need to ch 1 and turn. All the blocks will start the same as block number 1 and 2. You will ch 17 in color A and sc in the second chain from the hook and sc across.
• You can use dk or bulky weight yarn instead but it will result in a smaller or bigger number block.

After completing blocks 1-6 or 7-12, it is time to sew everything together. There is no need to weave ends in. They can all be hidden inside the block. I put my blocks together just like a dice is. The number on the top and bottom should equal the same on all sides, so the 1-6 block will equal 7 and the 7-12 will equal 19.

These number blocks are great to use to teach your children. They can throw them to learn numbers or to teach them addition, subtraction, or multiplication.
