Swords in Minecraft are melee weapons. They are usually used to protect the player, kill animals for food or fight off enemies.
My sword was done in single crochet with an I hook and Red Heart’s Black and Real Teal for the handle and Heather, Light Grey and Real Teal for the blade.

Let’s be honest this square is a bit more of a pain in the rear! Yeah you need to be able to read a graph and change colors, but you also have to keep all of those yarn bobbins and strand of yarn from knotting up. The sword didn’t come out as crisp as I would like but if you keep your stitches clean and your ends pulled firmly you will have a nice sword that is even recognizable to the mundane.
See my previous post on How to Crochet a Graph for tips, tricks and detailed instructions on how to create graphghans.
Don’t forget to block your squares! I can’t express how important this is. You will sometimes get a square that is misshapen or more of a rectangle than a true square and sometimes they will be really stretched out on one end and super tight on the other. I always stretch them to where they need to be and then block them to the size I want them to be. All of my squares for the Minecraft Obsession are 14″ square. See my previous post How to Block Flat Projects for more details on blocking your squares
