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.

  • 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)

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! 

Character Keyring Crochet Pattern

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)

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.

Character Keyring Crochet Pattern – Continue Pattern

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.

You should be able to see the ‘broken wood accents’ forming

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.

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

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)

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

  • 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.

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

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

“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.
