Door and Window Draught Stopper Crochet Pattern

The end of February means many cold, windy days… What can be better than to sit inside in a cozy warm house on such a day! You only need a good movie, a good drink and good company 😉 Well, and of course you have to keep your  place warm! A big, cute and cozy draught stopper will definitely help you with it!

Measure your window, choose nice colours matching your room and start to crochet! By the way, crocheting is one more way to kill long cold evenings at home 🙂

You will need:

  • 6.00 mm crochet hook
  • Beige yarn recommended for the hook (I used 148 m/200 g and I needed 500 g for the windstopper)
  • Scissors and sewing needle
  • Old t-shirts, socks, towels – anything what you don’t need and what can be used as a fill
  • Optional: 3.5 mm hook and matching yarn of two colours (I took brown and white) for decoration, sewing needle

Abbreviations:

  • ch – chain
  • st – stitch
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • trc – treble crochet
  • at the end of every round total number of stitches is shown in brackets

So I have three brown hearts with white frames and two white hearts with brown frames. Now I am going to sew one brown heart in the middle of the draught stopper and two more on the ends. White hearts I sew in empty spaces between the brown hearts.
