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 to use the Loom to make any design. For some designs, you must 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 can be crafted and how to craft them.
