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.

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! 

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.

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.

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

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet – Pattern Link

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet – Pattern Link. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!. Create this great little project to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th.

Shamrock Granny Square Crochet - Pattern Link

Here’s a bit of general knowledge about St. Patrick’s Day, if you fancy reading it!

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world on the 17th March each year to mark the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death (Patron saint of Ireland). This information was found from www.history.com

St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.

Carrying on with the St. Patrick’s Day theme from a couple of weeks ago where I made the Shamrock Crochet Brooch Pattern – Free Link. I took the inspiration from this to make a solid granny square to celebrate this theme.

These are a couple of free patterns I found but I prefer the more natural looking flowers, so I used the pattern for the poppy from the headband.  Link below:

https://kirstenhollowaydesigns.com/2017/08/poppy-flower-free-crochet-headband-pattern.html/amp

I switched the yellow yarn for black (no yellow yarn in my bag of tricks!).

Process

Create your brooch from the poppy pattern link above.

Tidy brooch up by sewing in the loose ends and attach the brooch clasp to the back of the crocheted poppy.

It crocheted up quite quickly and I loved the leaf design.  The pattern was quite easy to follow too.

These could be turned into brooches, button holes, handbag and hair accessories or added to blankets, scarves, cushions …. endless ideas!

Next time I might try adding a black button or bead in the middle.
