They’re so fun to make that once you get started you won’t want to stop… all you need is a small quantity of yarn and a keychain ring or six (like these) to get started. And if you find yourself inundated with keychains don’t worry, you can turn them into an ornament for your Christmas tree!

I love these keychains because not only do they work up really quickly you can use whatever embellishments you like to make each one totally unique! You could choose buttons, beads or ribbons, or fabric hearts and flowers, it’s totally up to you!


If you make crochet items for sale you are allowed to use this pattern in that way.

2 | Keychain Crochet Horse

Horse head keychain crochet pattern

If you’re looking for gift ideas for a horse lover how about one of these adorable little horse head keychains?


This pattern is great for beginners because the head is worked up in two pieces by crocheting in rows, not amigurumi as you might expect.

If you know a little girl who loves horses she could use one of these as a perfect little bag charm on her school backpack or pencil case!

How cute are these little animals! There’s a cat, bear, rabbit and fox to make and as well as being keychains they’re also mini purses! They’d make fabulous stocking stuffers for children (maybe with some wrapped candies inside) or for the woman on your list who hates carrying a purse and needs somewhere to keep a few coins handy when she’s out shopping!

These cute little jellyfish have fabulously twirly tentacles and will look great hanging from a little back pack or your purse! You’ll need some safety eyes, but don’t forget that even those are a choking hazard for little ones so if the keyring will be around children under three it’s best to embroider the eyes.
