Thermostat Crochet Pattern

thermostat crochet pattern

 

Here is another hallway inspired piece. There are two thermostats in the hallway I am mirroring, so I decided to knock these out real quick. The numbers on them are too tiny to reproduce, so I went with a simplified face with just the needle and the two little pieces on top to “turn” off and on the heat or cool air. There have actually been AC issues in the warehouse where my studio is at, so it would be funny if the guys fixing it ran into these once they are installed. I’ll put up more images later once I get the chance to hang them up in the hallway.

Supplies

-several colors of yarn (I used worsted weight, red heart and caron simply soft)

-G hook

-yarn needle

-stitch marker

-stuffing

Front

You are going to start off with a light grey color (or another of your choice), this is the piece that the “needle attaches to” with a real thermostat.

R1: magic circle 6sc – 6sc

R2: 2sc in each st* repeat – 12sc

Switch to white (or other color, this is the transparent part of the thermostat that you can “see through” in a real model)

R3: 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 18sc

R4: 2 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 24sc

Switch to grey (can be another version of grey or other color, this is the main portion of the thermostat)

R5: 3 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 30sc

R6: 4 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 36sc

R7: 5 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 42sc

R8: 6 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 48sc

R9: sc in each st around – 48sc

R10: 6 1sc, sc2tog* repeat – 42sc

R11: 5 1sc, sc2tog* repeat – 36sc

R12: 5 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 42sc

R13: 6 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 48sc

Tie off. Using another color (red or pink for example) stitch a needle onto the front in the “clear” section (white).

Back

Use same color as the last color of the front piece, in my case that’s the darker grey.

R1: magic circle 6sc – 6sc

R2: 2sc in each st around* repeat – 12sc

R3: 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 18sc

R4: 2 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 24sc

R5: 3 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 30sc

R6: 4 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 36sc

R7: 5 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 42sc

R8: 6 1sc, 2sc in st* repeat – 48sc

Tie off. Sew two pieces together and stuff as you go. Add on white stitches that loop around 2 sc to add the little switches at the top that turn the fan off and on.

Feel free to gift, sell, or modify this pattern all you want. Just reference back to me in some way. I’ll add more pictures once I have it installed in the halls.

Vale.
