Free Character Crochet Pattern – Medium. After the fantastic interest in the Character Keyring I made recently, a friend requested I made a larger version.

I doubled up the pattern for the keyrings to make this size.

  • DK yarn in
    • Black Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU
    • (I’m unsure of the amount I used but it was less than 50g of each)
  • Soft toy filling

Character Keyring Crochet Pattern

Head (made in 2 parts) – Beige Yarn 

The completed project is made up of two patterns. The body is my pattern but the pattern for the head was inspired from this fab designer: blog.twinkiechan.com/2014/08/13/baby-groot/#more-5970 

Head Part A

Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) do not join to first stitch, carry on working in the round

INC in each st x 6 (12sts)

1SC, INC x 6 (18sts)

2SC, INC x 6 (24sts)

3SC, INC x 6 (30sts)

4SC, INC x 6 (36sts)

5SC, INC x 6 (42sts)

6SC, INC x 6 (48sts)

7SC, INC x 6 (54sts)

1SC in each st (54sts) x 10 rows

SS – Do Not Fasten Off

Broken-wood head accents

You’ll be crocheting triangular-ish and rectangular-ish shapes, and then slip stitching down one side of each shape to get your hook back to the head. We do this so we don’t have to break off and rejoin over and over again to continue our work. I broke each shape into different paragraphs so that they are easier to see and organize.

SS into the head and fasten off. Weave in ends.

Now you’ll finish the top of the head. You’re just making a circle to cover the hole ( Head Part B)

Head Part B – Beige Yarn

Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) do not join to first stitch, carry on working in the round

INC in each st x 6 (12sts)

1SC, INC x 6 (18sts)

2SC, INC x 6 (24sts)

3SC, INC x 6 (30sts)

4SC, INC x 6 (36sts)

5SC, INC x 6 (42sts)

6SC, INC x 6 (48sts)

SS and fasten off.  Leaving 24 inches of yarn.  (For sewing to Part A of head)

Lightly stuff Head Part A.

Since Head Part B is 48sts around and open hole of Head Part A is technically 54sts around, you can’t sew stitch for stitch, so just sew it on as best you can and make it look good. I found that using a 54st circle was too big for the opening.

You can use the top of Head Part A as a guide for sewing. While sewing, you also don’t want the head to look like it has Frankenstein stitches going all around it, so try to sew as invisible as you can. Put in more stuffing if needed.
