In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
-Simon & Garfunkel
Well, what can I say about cobblestone. I’ve been silent on here for awhile, and this is what I come back with. “Sound of Silence” was playing when I was trying to figure out what to write for this post, and it made me smile so here we are.
The humble and unassuming cobblestone is a basic building block in Minecraft and is typically found in villager houses. I have plastic canvas patterns for it in portions of 4 or 9. It depends on how much time you want to spend doing them. The pattern of 9 smaller blocks looks more like the ones in Minecraft, but the block split into fourths sure takes much less time.
Check out stone bricks for more building block patterns.
Also I tried to make moss covered cobblestone blocks, but they just weren’t that much fun for me. There is no pattern for them, but I took a picture of what I was playing around with. It was just a matter of using green embroidery floss on the cracks and corners.
Plastic Canvas Pattern and Instructions for Minecraft Cobblestone:
1. Cut six squares with 17 x 17 holes on 7-mesh plastic canvas.
2. Follow the pattern using yarn colors of grey heather.
3. Whip stitch the edges of the finished pieces together.
