My Tunisian Crochet Minecraft Blanket was my first effort at using Tunisian Crochet for an afghan, and I fell in love with my method. My family fell in love with the afghan too, which is why they wanted the Tunisian Crochet Guardians of the Galaxy Afghan.
Please be aware that I like to use an inexpensive blanket for my backing. I have a lot of loose yarn ends when I am finished, but I “ABSOLUTELY DO NOT” bury my loose yarn ends. I like to use the loose yarn ends as cushioning between the Tunisian Crochet Design and the inexpensive backing. This doesn’t mean that you can’t bury your loose yarn ends, if that is how you would like to make your blanket. If you decide to bury your loose yarn ends, it will just take you longer. I use this same method, that I used for my Minecraft blanket, for my Tunisian Crochet Guardians of the Galaxy Blanket.
I love how my Tunisian Crochet blankets turn out when I am finished.
Here are all of the free PDF downloadable graphs that I used to make my Minecraft blanket:

Tunisian Crochet Minecraft Blanket Backing and Border:
There are different sizes for fleece blankets. So, make sure that you finish your Tunisian Crochet Minecraft Blanket first, and then measure it before purchasing your fleece blanket backing.
Here is a link to some inexpensive fleece blankets that you may like for your blanket backing 50 x60 inches: 50 inch x 60 inch fleece blanket backing
Some fleece blankets may not have the stitching around the border. When this happens, I create an embroidery stitch around the border of the blanket. I show how to do this with my Tunisian Crochet Guardians of the Galaxy blanket.
I hope that you will share pictures of your finished Tunisian Crochet Minecraft blankets with me. I would love to see them. If you would like to see crochet work that other people have shared with me, here is the direct link: People who have shared pictures of their crochet work with me
