A door draft stopper crochet pattern that makes a perfect DIY home decor project or gift. Why make a draft dodger look like a snake when you can make it in a bright neon color to enliven your interior design? Draft excluders are a low-energy way to weatherize your home, so grab the crochet pattern and make one for every door in your house! Seriously huge, this draft dodger measures about 4 inches in diameter and the length of your door. It'll stop any draft like a neon ninja. You could stuff it with beans, but it's so big that the weight of the worsted weight yarn held double yarn and the polyfill do the job. You can use any yarn to match your home decor, but I like to use bright neon yarns like Caron Simply Soft's seasonal Neon Coral or Neon Pink. Buy it in summer for brightening your winter when summer is just a memory. Gauge is no important, just have fun! Skill level: Easy Materials: J/10 6 mm crochet hook, tapestry needle, worsted weight yarn (about 450-500 yd for a 4 ft door). Share: I love to see pictures of your creations!
