Knitted Gift DoorstopBy Amanda Berry
Prop the door open to help Santa squeeze through with his bulging sack of presents. My, you must have made it to the nice list by finishing all your WIPs this year! Amanda Berry’s Knitted Gift Doorstop will make visitors smile and add a cheerful festive aesthetic to your home. Standing 18cm high, this novelty doorstop is constructed from separate knitted pieces, then filled with stuffing and weights before topping off with ribbons and bow. Knitted flat in simple garter stitch, it’s an ideal project for newer knitters wanting to practise increases and decreases. Made using either Scheepjes Colour Crafter or Scrumptious with glittery stripes of Scheepjes Twinkle, there’s a multitude of colours to choose from to suit your festive theme.
