How to make a Carpet?


In a Nutshell:


To make a carpet in Minecraft, open your crafting table containing the 3x3 grid. Place two wools beside each other in the second row. Now simply click and drag the carpet into your inventory. To make a coloured variant, use wool of the color of your choice.


Step-by-Step Instructions:


Making carpet is easy. Follow these simple steps to craft your own:


Step 1: Acquire Wool


You need at least 2 wool to make carpet. The wool comes from sheep. Sheep can be found in grassy biomes. You can use shears to harvest wool from a sheep (or simply kill it and take the wool it drops). Sheared sheep regrow their wool by grazing.

Making Colored Carpet


The color of the carpet will always match the color of the wool used to craft it. Colored wool can be harvested from sheep or crafted using dyes.


To craft colored wool for your carpet, simply place your wool in the center-left slot of the crafting grid and place the dye of your choice in the center slot.


Making Colored Carpet


After you create colored wool, you can follow the step-by-step instructions above to craft it into a carpet of the same color.


Uses for Carpet


  1. Climbing Fences: If you place a carpet on top of a fence, you can jump onto it to cross the fence. Mobs still cannot cross a fence, even if there is carpet on it.


  1. Floor Decoration: Each carpet covers a single block. The carpet is 1 pixel thick.


  1. Fuel: Carpet is flammable and can be burned as fuel in a furnace.


  1. Llama Saddle Patterns: You can use a piece of carpet to add a colorful saddle pattern to a tamed llama.


FAQ
