Tardis bookend

tardis 1

This was a Christmas present for my sister-in-law. I used a steel bookend from Daiso, a 4mm hook and blue, white and black 8ply wool. This pattern is written in American crochet notation.


The main body of the Tardis

With blue wool

Round 1: chain 16, turn (using up the turning chain in the process), sc 14, increase in the next stitch, then along the other side of the chain sc 13, increase in the final stitch

Rounds 2 – 35: sc in each stitch

Fasten off, weave in end.


Windows (make two)

With white wool

Row 1: chain 7

Rows 2 – 7: sc in each stitch (6 stitches – it is six, rather than seven, because one of the chains is a turning chain)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.



With white wool

Row 1: chain 5

Rows 2 – 7: sc in each stitch (4 stitches)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.


Police Sign

With black wool

Row 1: chain 15

Rows 2 – 3: sc in each stitch (14 stitches)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.



With blue wool

Round 1: 6sc in a magic ring

Change to white wool

Rounds 2 – 4: sc in each stitch (6 stitches)

Change to blue wool

Round 5: sc in each stitch (6 stitches)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.




Put the body of the Tardis over the bookend. Sew on the windows, poster, police sign and light. Embroider the writing on the poster, the words ‘Police Box’ on the sign, the bars on the windows and the light and the black outline of the doors.
