Crocheted cubes and cuboids can be used for Amigurumis, as heads and bodyparts for robots, machines and cubic animals, as normal dice with stitched on numbers or simple box with a flap.
The depicted crochet cube is crocheted in spiral rounds. You start crocheting a simple square that is the base of the cube that is then crocheted from there aloft. Crochet the same height as the square is wide to get a cube or longer/shorter as the square to get a cuboid. Finally the top of the cube/cuboid is closed with another square. Everything is crocheted in one piece.
Cube Crochet Pattern
- Magic Ring
- Single Crochet Stitch (SC)
Needed Materials and Tools
Use a yarn and color of your choice and a suitable crochet hook. The here depicted cube was crocheted in spiral rounds using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook.
IMPORTANT: This crochet pattern is crocheted in spiral rounds, means, you keep crocheting without joining rounds unless said otherwise. Always work a marker of any kind in the first stitch of each new round, to know when a round begins and/or ends.

Done is your own crochet cube in spiral rounds. You can adjust the height of your cube when you crochet in Round 6 more or less rounds. As long as you crochet the same height as the base square is wide you get a cube.
Crochet a bigger or smaller base square to create a bigger or smaller cube.
If you want a cube with more round edges do not crochet into the back loops but into both loops.
You can also create new shapes when you crochet instead of the top square a circle or another shape. Feel free to experiment.
