Tetris blocks

tinyone

I have a little niece who is too young for computer games but still needs to experience the awesomeness that is tetris. I made these for her. To be honest, I had may have had a bit of fun playing with them too 🙂

This pattern is in American crochet notation, made with 8ply and a 4mm hook. It is very easy, so perhaps a good project for a beginner. I made 10 blocks (so two of each shape).
