Little Crochet Pumpkin Pattern – Free. Feeling very Autumnal outside today so I got my crochet hooks out and made a cute little crochet pumpkin. Look how cute he is!

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

Using the long piece leftover after fastening off, thread a darning needle and sew straight through centre hole at the top to centre hole at the bottom. Bring thread up on outside of pumpkin and back through the top hole. Do this six times leaving a similar gap between each pumpkin segment.

Once you have six segments on the pumpkin, pull thread to tighten all segments to sort of squish it into a pumpkin shape. Once you are happy with the shape, sew into bottom of hole to secure and fasten off.

(Bring thread through pumpkin and cut off excess to hide leftover thread inside pumpkin).

Bride Groom Character Keyring – Free Pattern

Bride Groom Character Keyring

Free Pattern

This Bride Groom Character Keyring – Free Pattern was designed and inspired because I just love baby Groot.  He’s so adorable! To clarify I have a little bobblehead of him in my car and he definitely makes me smile daily.  When I was asked to make a wedding gift for two lovers of this character, I was so excited to have a chance to make them.

You could make these in any colour you choose, you could also use the same colour theme as the wedding party.  You can turn this Bride Groom Character Pattern into a keyring as I have for example. Or likewise, add a ribbon to the top of their heads or leave them as small soft plushies to use as a cake topper, you choose!

Bride Groom Character Keyring - Free Pattern

For your Bride Groom Character Keyring – Free Pattern you will need:

  • 3.5mm / 4mm crochet hook (depending on how tight you crochet, I used a 3.5mm)
  • DK yarn in:
    • (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 attachments (if using)

Bride Groom Character Keyring – Free Pattern

Head (made in 2 parts) – Beige Yarn 

Use the same pattern for both the bride and the groom heads.  However, to make them slightly different I gave the bride eyelashes and added a small flower to her ‘hair’.

The completed project is actually made up of two different 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 below slightly but credit still goes to the above – Thank You! 

Head Part A

  • Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) but 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)
  • 7SC, INC x 3 (27sts)
  • 1SC in each st (27sts) x 5 rows
  • SS – Do Not Fasten Off

Now start working on the ‘broken’ head segments.

“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.

Ch 1, 3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 2 sc evenly. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st,  1 sc, sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, sk last st. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1, 1 sc. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. 1 sc, sk 1, sl st. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.”

Keep going!

“4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st,  1sc, sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. sk 1, 2 sc.  Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 1 sc , sk 1, 1 sc. Ch1, turn. Sk 1, 1 sc. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. 1 sc, sk 1, sl st. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into the head again.

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

http://blog.twinkiechan.com/2014/08/13/baby-groot/#more-5970

Finish the head by making a circle using head part B, see below:

Head Part B – Beige Yarn

  • Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) but 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.”

Crochet Owl Keyring Pattern – Free Link

Crochet Owl Keyring Pattern – Free Link.

This pattern is easy to follow and I had so much fun creating this project. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This could be made into the keyring shown or used as a handbag charm.

Materials I used on this project:

I used a 3.5mm crochet hook, but you could probably get away with using a 3mm or 4mm depending on what type of yarn used.

The yarn I used is Stylecraft Special DK yarn –

Aspen – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

White – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

Grey – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

I used less than 50g of all the Aspen, Grey and White yarn.

The best soft toy filling I have found is from Hobbycraft. It’s usually on offer, so the more you buy the cheaper the price – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/soft-toy-filling-200g/630191-1000?_br_psugg_q=soft+toy+stuffing

Keyring attachment (if using) – https://www.kydproducts.co.uk/40mm-spring-hook-with-25mm-splitring-nickel-plated

Darning needle to sew it all together

The buttons for the eyes and the beads were from my craft stash and I can’t remember where I bought them from.
