Crochet Giant Lego Brick Pattern: Four Dot Brick

Let’s get building….. with some crochet Lego blocks

It’s been too long since I made some Lego themed crochet, my previous makes of a 6 dot Lego block doorstop, Lego tissue box cover and some Lego block blankets are still some of my favourite makes and always make me smile when I see them.

So I decided it was time to get cracking and make a new Lego make. Since making my Lego 6 dot block I have been wanting to make a 4 dot block so I got some red wool out of my stash and got making.

I love how this block has turned out, I think I need to make a 1 dot next…….

Crochet Lego 4 Dot Block: Block Assembly

  • Take two of the four side pieces and place them wrong sides together, sew down the side seam with an over stitch.  Repeat with the remaining side pieces until they are all joined together. 
  • Take the top piece, and placing right sides together sew around the edges to join to the side pieces.    
  • Take the bottom piece, and placing right sides together sew around two of the edges to join to the sides, leave the final two unsewn.  Turn out the right way then place in your foam block/stuffing, next sew the remaining two edges together.  If wanting to use as a doorstop place weights in before sewing the remaining edges together.

Crochet Lego 4 Dot Block: Adding Dots

  • Take one of the dots and place in one of the 6cm diameter pieces of cards – you can do it without the pieces of card if you want as well it just gives a bit more structure to the dots.  
  • Place in some stuffing then sew to the top of the block.  Repeat with the other 3 dots.
