Minecraft banners are their own special game for some people. You can use up to six patterns on a banner and manipulate them to form some interesting designs! We've seen Ghast banners, Bat banners, and Pumpkin banners thanks to some clever finagling by designers. In this guide, we are going to show you how to make all the distinct patterns you can use.
How to Make All Banner Patterns in Minecraft
Before we list the Crafting recipes, we'd like to mention the most important thing to Banner designs: The Loom. It is the most helpful tool to use when designing. If you craft the banners by hand, you need to use anywhere between three and eight dye ingredients. The Loom makes it so no matter what, you only need to use one Dye ingredient.
The image above shows you how you can use the Loom to make any design. For some designs, you will need to make a Banner Pattern by combining a specific ingredient with a single piece of paper. You can see the recipes for each Banner Pattern in the image below.
If you have your heart set on not using a Loom and, instead, crafting the banners manually, we've still got you covered! In the lists below, you'll see which patterns are available to be crafted and how to craft them.
The following patterns are shown in the image below: Base, Chief, Fess, Pale Dexter, Pale Sinister, Pale, Bend, Bend Sinister, Paly, Saltire, and Cross.
The following patterns are shown in the image below: Per Bend, Per Bend Sinister, Per Bend Inverted, Per Bend Inverted Sinister, Per Pale, Per Pale Inverted, Per Fess, and Per Fess Inverted.
The following patterns are shown in the image below: Base Dexter Canton, Base Sinister Canton, Chief Dexter Canton, Chief Sinister Canton, Chevron, Inverted Chevron, Base Indented, Chief Indented, Roundel, and Lozenge.
