Chicken Stack - Doorstop, Decoration - Crochet Pattern
Whether as doorstop or decoration for shelf or table, this colorful chicken stack always looks great. The doorstop variant has a useful handle which makes one handed handling a lot easier. For the smaller decorative variant the handle is simply left out.
No sewing! The chicken stack is done as one piece. No parts need to be sewn on top of each other or on to each other in the end. Once you‘re done with crocheting, you‘re done with the chicken stack. :)
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for beginners as well, however I‘d rather recommend it for experienced crocheters. This pattern contains 26 pages of crochet instructions and 31 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained, changeing yarn-color. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals, as well as back and forth in rows.
With DK yarn and a 3.0 mm hook the Chicken Stack gets to be 20 cm wide and 30 cm tall. With Sport weight yarn and a 2.0 mm hook it gets to be 15 cm wide and 21 cm tall.
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn.

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
- Steph :)
