Free Pattern: Minecraft Magma Cube & Slime


Make your own cute minecraft magma cube or slime critter!

Small: 8x8x8
Medium: 12x12x12
Any size: see schematic

No need to strengthen the sides to obtain& maintain cubic form as this pattern is using 2 rectangles to make the cube instead of working in the round.
In the rectangles 'hinges' are created by working one row in the front or back loops only. By working in the front row, the hinge will be towards you. The back row will be the opposite.


Cube Small (8x8x8)
0 chain 9
1-8 8sc, ch1, turn (8 times in total)
9 8sc in front loops only, ch1, turn
10-16 8sc, ch1, turn (7 times in total)
17 8c in front loops only, ch1, turn
18-24 8sc, ch1, turn (7 times in total)




make two, embroider the eyes, sew together to form a cube, stuff. See schematic for help.
Make sure the 'hinges' as explained above are in the correct way.
This means that if you lay down the 2 rectangles, the unused back loops should be in the back (you are not facing them).
Cube Medium (12x12x12)
0 chain 13
1-12 12sc, ch1, turn (12 times in total)
13 12sc in front loops only, ch1, turn
14-24 12sc, ch1, turn (11 times in total)
25 12sc in front loops only, ch1, turn
26-36 12sc, ch1, turn (11 times in total)

Cube Any size (XxXxX)
0 chain (X +1)
X sc, ch1, turn (X times in total)
X sc in front loops only, ch1, turn
X sc, ch1, turn ( (X -1) times in total)
X sc in front loops only, ch1, turn
X sc, ch1, turn ( (X -1) times in total)

Eyes
Embroider the eyes like these patterns.
What I normally do is first make all vertical stripes and then finish it off with 2 horizontal bars on top and bottom.

  2. Great pattern! Slight mistake though, with the small cube

    "28-24 8sc, ch1, turn (7 times in total)"

    I believe that is meant to be "18-24"?
