Character Keyring Crochet Pattern – Free

Character Keyring Crochet Pattern – Free Crochet / Amigurumi Pattern

Character Keyring Crochet Pattern – Free Crochet / Amigurumi Pattern.  This pattern was designed because I just love him. He’s so adorable! I have a bobblehead of him in my car and he makes me smile daily.

You could make this into a keyring like I have, add a ribbon to the top of the head or leave it as a small soft plushie, you choose!

For the Character Keyring Crochet Pattern you will need:

  • 3.5mm / 4mm crochet hook (depending on how tight you crochet, I used a 3.5mm)
  • 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
  • Darning needle to sew it all together
  • Keyring attachment (if using)

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 is not my design, it came from this fab designer: blog.twinkiechan.com/2014/08/13/baby-groot/#more-5970 

I have tweaked the original pattern slightly (see below) but credit still goes to the above – Thank You!

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)

7SC, INC x 3 (27sts)

1SC in each st (27sts) x 5 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)

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 24 sts around and open hole of Head Part A is technically 27 sts 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 27 st 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.

The following continues as my pattern
