Crochet Lego Brick Doorstop Pattern

One day while speaking to a friend of mine, she mentioned that she had been looking for a child’s themed doorstop for her son’s room, but hadn’t managed to find one anywhere that would be suitable.   So I said I would have a look and see if I could find any. Her little boy is absolutely obsessed with anything and everything to do with Lego, so I had the thought… what about a Lego brick doorstop!

I decided to crochet the doorstop and chose bright yellow wool and a 4mm hook. I didn’t have a pattern, so had to put one together myself using inspiration from the knitting pattern here

Crochet Lego block doorstop pattern:

Materials:

  • 4mm hook.
  • Yellow DK wool.
  • Card.
  • Toy Stuffing.
  • Sand.

End pieces – make 2:

Row 1: ch 31.

Row 2: sc into second stitch from the hook, sc to end (30sc).

Rows 3-20: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc to end (30sc).

Fasten off.

Top and bottom pieces – make 2 (one top, one bottom):

Row 1: ch50.

Row 2: sc into second stitch from the hook, sc to end (49sc).

Rows 3-30: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc to end (49sc).

Fasten off.

Side pieces – make 2:

Row 1: ch50.

Row 2: sc into second stitch from the hook, sc to end (49sc).

Rows 3-20: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc to end (49sc).

Fasten off.

The studs – make 6:

Row 1: ch12.

Row 2: sc into second stitch from the hook, sc to end (11sc).

Rows 3-16: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc to end (11sc).

Fasten off leaving a long end.

Crochet Lego Block Assembly

Joining the sides:

To attach the brick pieces together I placed two pieces right side together and used a row of sc stitches down the seam. I repeated this until all the pieces had been joined together, except for one seam, which I left open for stuffing and inserting the bag of sand. As I had attached each piece to the brick with the right side together, it meant that the brick was inside out. I therefore turned the brick the correct way by pulling it out through the open seam.

Attaching the studs:

  • I cut out round pieces of cardboard (4cm / 1 ½”) to act as the shape for the top and bottom of each stud (6 studs so 12 pieces in total).
  • Next, I placed a cardboard round in the middle of one of the stud sections and using the long length of wool still attached, I wove it around the edge of the crochet piece.
  • Toy stuffing was then placed in the stud on top of the cardboard round with another cardboard round placed on top to enclose the wadding.
  • The length of wool that had been woven round the stud previously was then pulled tight to gather together the crocheted stud around the cardboard round inners.
  • This was then fastened off to complete the stud. Repeat another 5 times.
  • The studs were then sewn to the top of the brick.

Once the brick was completed I then needed to stuff and add weight the brick. It would have been possible to use a wadding wrapped actual brick for the inner part but as this was for a small child’s room I thought it might be more suitable filled with wadding and play sand (double plastic bagged to prevent any leaks!) You could also use gravel, dried lentils and pulses, or rice – anything that provides enough weight really.

I was really pleased with how it turned out and the little boy was absolutely over the moon too – he now wants more in different colours!

    Thanks for the cute idea. Hubby wants a door stop crocheted (had an old one that we had to toss)….so this is cute and easy. I hope to remember to send you a note after this is made. He loved the studs you added.

      Thank you, would be great to see it when it’s finished. I’m hoping to get a few of these made soon, so there will hopefully be a few more appearing on my blog!
