Weighty Welcome Doorstop

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


Triangle = about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm)
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

TRIANGLE (make 12 with A, 1 each with B, C, D and E)
Ch 4, join with sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Sc in ring, *ch 4, sc in ring, rep from * once, ch 4, sl st in beg sc to join.
Rnd 2: Ch 4, counts as (1 dc, ch 1), * in next ch-4 sp work (2 dc, 1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr, 2 dc), ch 1, rep from * around ending last rep 1 dc, join with sl st in top of beg ch.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in each dc and tr to next ch-3 sp, * in ch-3 sp work (sc, dc, ch 3, dc, sc), sc in each dc, tr and ch-1 sp to next ch-3 sp, rep from * around, join with sl st in beg sc.
Assemble Large Triangle
Sew base of one A Triangle to the base of one B Triangle. Sew an A Triangle (inverted) to each side of B Triangle to create a large Triangle.
Rep with remaining Triangles to make a total of 4 large Triangles.

Inner doorstop

First, make a paper triangle template: On scrap paper, draw an 8 1/2 in. (22 cm) line for base of triangle. Mark center of line, then draw an 8 1/2 in. (22 cm) line up from center mark, perpendicular to base line. Draw a line from each end of base line to top of center line to create an equilateral triangle.
Mark 4 triangles onto wrong side of fabric by tracing around template. Cut out triangles along marked lines.
By hand or machine and using 1/4 in. (6 mm) seams, sew 3 triangles together along adjoining sides, to create a pyramid shape, open at the base. Pin 4th triangle to base and sew to pyramid along 2 edges. Stuff fabric shape with fiberfill, adding a handful of dried beans to center of stuffing. Sew remaining edge closed.
With crochet hook and A, sl st 3 large assembled triangles together along sides to create a pyramid shape. Slip crochet over stuffed fabric pyramid. Sl st remaining crocheted triangle to base.
