Minecraft Diamond Sword Crochet Pattern

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a new pattern on my blog, but I have a really great one for you today. It’s a Minecraft Diamond Sword pattern, perfect for fans of the hit video game! If you love Minecraft, you would also like my Minecraft Creeper Crochet Pattern. Anyway, the finished sword is about 11 inches (28 cm) long and 6 inches (14.5 cm) wide at the handle. Enjoy the pattern!

Notes:

  • Stitch count is also included in brackets at the end of each row.
  • The piece is constructed as two flat sword shaped pieces that are whip stitched together and stuffed
  • The tapestry colour change method is used throughout this pattern, so the colours that aren’t being used for each piece are carried, and the colour is changed on the second yarn over of the stitch before the colour change. Here is a tutorial on this method that I found useful: https://www.lillabjorncrochet.com/2016/07/how-to-do-tapestry-crochet-step-by-step.html

For Assembly: Lay out 1 of each piece and fit them together. Whip stitch the adjacent edges using the corresponding colours of yarn. Repeat to create a 2nd flat piece. Making you have the right sides of both pieces facing out, whip stitch the edges of the pieces together, stuffing as you go. Make sure you use the same colours of yarn as the edges of the pieces (dark blue, black and brown). Weave in the ends.
