Time to get building….building some Minecraft blocks that is!
Its been a little while since I have managed to get some Minecraft makes finished and I have decided its time to get cracking with them! So over the next few weeks a few new Minecraft themed makes will be popping out on to here all themed around the different Minecraft blocks. These makes will consist of Minecraft cubes measuring 17x17x17cm. I cant wait to have a few of these made as they will all be able to stack together so you can actually build something out of them!.
I opted for corner to corner crochet for these as its perfect for giving the block effect of a Minecraft block and also I love using corner to corner crochet on projects!
I used a foam padding piece to fill these – using one large piece and cutting into 17x17cm squares and stacking them together. You could also use a 17x17x17cm cube of foam if you can find one, or even just fill them with toy stuffing.
I started making these at first and realised they were going to be too big so to make them smaller and the 17cm size instead of using trb(UK)/dc(US) stitches I changed them to htr(UK)/hdc(US). This also means at the start of each row instead of ch6 and trb(UK)/dc(US) into the 4th ch from the hook, you only need to ch5 and then htr(UK)/hdc(US) into the 3rd ch from the hook. Also instead of ch3 at the start of each square you only need to ch2. How to on using a htr(UK)/hdc(US) for corner to corner crochet can be found over on this ‘how to’ guide.
Also instead of using a 4mm hook as I normally would I opted for used a smaller 3.5mm hook.
If you do want a bigger block complete hook up a size, to go smaller hook down a size.

Make the 6 sides using the patterns below and sew the pieces together around the foam piece down the side edges. If using stuffing sew all the pieces together but leave a 10cm gap for putting in the stuffing and then sew the gap closed.
