Cute Crochet Sun Keyring Pattern

  



Materials needed:

Acrylic DK or worsted yarn in yellow, blue and red, plus small amounts of black.
3 mm hook
yarn needle
a silver-coloured keyring keychain

*This pattern uses American terminology.
* Gauge is not important for this project.

Abbreviations used:

sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
st = stitch
sts = stitches
FO = fasten off
mr = magic ring
CC = change colour

Faces (make two)

Sun Centre
With yellow yarn make a magic ring.
R1: Ch 2, dc 12 in mr, sl st in first dc (12) CC to blue, leaving a long end of yellow for the sun beams.

Sky
R2: Ch 2, 2 dc in same st, 2 dc in each st across, sl st in first dc (24) CC to red

Edging

R3: Ch 1, 2 sc in same st, 2 sc in each st across, sl st in first sc (48).
FO, leaving a long end for sewing only on one of the faces.

Embellishing

With the yellow yarn left from R1, embroider the sun beams, going twice through each space in between the sts between R1 and 2 and every other space in between the sts between R 2 and 3. You'll end up with 12 beams, each consisting of two lines (use photo as guide).

With black, embroider eyes using French knots. With red, embroider mouth.

Joining the sides 

Position the two faces with the wrong sides together. Tuck in any loose ends. Using the long red tail left at the end of R3, sew them together, going through each back loop of the side facing you and each front loop of the side facing away from you.

Attaching the keychain

Take the remaining tail of red yarn to the center point on top of the head and sew the keychain to the circle.
