Minecraft Ghast Granny Square Blanket Pattern 

I finally managed to get all the grannies assembled and in their correct positions to finish my Minecraft Ghast blanket!

Has taken me a little while to get the final few grannies for this ghast blanket finished but I had a little flurry of making them and finally got all 100 finished and sewn together. I love the effect of this granny square and the pattern I used is over on:

 It’s been great using different types of granny square for each of the Minecraft blankets I have made so far, (mooshroom cow, creeper, wolf) and I have found another one to try for my next Minecraft blanket I have in mind – you would think I would have had enough of these granny squares blankets by now, but I keep finding new grannies and other Minecraft blankets I want to make!

Start Of A New Granny Square Blanket: Minecraft Ghast

The grannies are assembling again, I think it may take me a while to get this next set finished – they never like to meet in small numbers in my house!

After the success of my two Minecraft blankets (mooshroom cow, creeper) I’m on my way with the next one, this time I’m going for a ghast to match the ghast soft toy I previously made a pattern for. I opted to use a different granny square pattern to the Minecraft creeper (traditional granny square) and mushroom cow (solid granny square) blankets, as I wanted to make it a bit different and am using a filet starburst Granny square which is similar to the solid granny square but has a gap in the middle of each side. The pattern for this lovely granny square is available for free over on:

Again I need 100 grannies, I never seem to do these in small quantities! So far I’ve got 50 completed, hopefully the next 50 go as smoothly….


Minecraft Crochet Pattern: Ghast – Floating In With A Wail And A Howl, Watch Out For Any Fireballs! 

Following on from my creeper and squid patterns I next decided to make a pattern for a ghast. This pattern comprised of the square body, 9 legs, and quite a bit of stitched face and body detailing. This black detailing is what really brings the ghast to life, through my personal preference I opted just to do the black closed eyes ghast facial expression rather than the red eyes, but you could do whichever you prefer.

Minecraft Crochet Pattern: Squid – Speedily Swimming To The water!

The next Minecraft pattern I decided to make was for a squid. This pattern basically consists of just a rectangle and 8 legs so hasn’t got too much to it and doesn’t take too long to make as a result. I am really happy with how it came out, I think it was the eye and mouth detail that really finished it off as I was a bit unsure before adding it how good it would look, but I knew I had got it right once I had finished the eyes.

Minecraft Crochet Blanket Pattern: Mooshroom Cow

First a sneaky creeper now it’s time for a slightly more friendly Mooshroom cow blanket.

I really enjoyed making the Minecraft creeper blanket – despite the massive number of grannies I needed to make to put it together. I was surprised how quickly I got through them all to be honest and they were great to make when I only had a little bit of time free and before I knew it I had all 100 made. I do find it quite relaxing doing them (which is a good thing since there are so many!), as once you have done a few you know pattern so you don’t have to concentrate too hard while doing it. As this previous blanket went so well I decided to make another, this time I chose to make a Mooshroom cow. To make it a bit different to the previous Minecraft blanket I decided to use a different granny square and opted for a solid granny square.

Minecraft Mooshroom Cow Blanket pattern

You will need to make Solid Granny squares for this pattern, there is a how to guide for this: ‘How to’ make a solid Granny square.

Total number of squares: 100

White: 21

Cream: 4

Black: 8

Dark Red: 23

Light Red: 20

Red: 18

Light Grey: 4

Dark Grey: 2


To join all the squares I placed two of the squares right sides together and slip stitched down the seam with a needle.  I added a round of dc stitches around the edge of the blanket to finish it off, I think it really makes the blanket stand out.


I’ve got a few more ideas for these blankets I am excited to try, I think I may be making a few hundred more granny squares soon!

Minecraft Crochet Pattern: Creeper

Sneaking up quietly is the first of a few Minecraft patterns I have been working on, run quick…it’s a creeper!! 

Following the previous success of my Minecraft creeper blanket I have been wanting to make some Minecraft characters but was so busy with my Christmas makes they got put on the back burner. Finally now Christmas (and the ridiculous number of quilts and other gifts) is over I can concentrate on them. The one great thing when making something from Minecraft is everything is square or rectangular – no curved edges, which makes it so much easier to make the pattern and put together.

I thought I would start first with one of the most recognisable characters in Minecraft (and the match the blanket I made) the creeper.
