Hello and happy Monday! Welcome to my blog if this is your first time, or welcome back if you’ve been here before! Thanks for checking out this post today. 😃
As you likely read in the title, today, I’m here with a pattern for crochet sunflower keychains! It’s very beginner friendly, so if you’re new to crocheting, you’ll likely still be able to make this! The stitches and techniques I’ll use in this pattern are a magic ring, half double crochet, chains, double crochet, and slip stitches.
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Peaches & Creme yarn in the colors Gold and Dark Taupe, but you can use any type of yarn that you like, or that you have on hand. You’ll need two colors: yellow and brown. You could also make this pattern, but use different colors to make a different flower.
- You’ll also need a 4 mm crochet hook. I’ve made this using a 3.5 mm hook as well, and this works.
- You’ll need a pair of scissors.
- And, a yarn needle.
- You will need a keychain if you want to make this sunflower into a keychain. If you don’t want to, you can just make the sunflower part, and sew it to a hat or a purse, which I think would look so cute!
Start out with your brown ring and make a magic ring.
Into your magic ring, make fourteen half double crochets. It may get a bit tight, but you should be able to fit them all in. When you’ve made all of your fourteen stitches, pull the loose end of your magic ring to close the center. While making a slip stitch in your first half double crochet, change the color to yellow.
Now, we’re going to make the petals! In the first stitch, *chain one, double crochet, chain one.* Slip stitch into the next stitch. Continue the pattern of doing the stitches between * in one stitch, and slip stitching into the next.
Here are two completed petals.
Continue around until you’ve finished your flower with seven petals. Slip stitch into the stitch you began in and fasten off, leaving a long tail. If you don’t have a keychain, and you wish to just use your flower as it is now, weave in the ends, and you’re good to go.
If you have a keychain, stick around.
Take the long tail which you cut, and put it through the last ring on your keychain.
Take the yarn back through the stitch you’re at.
Pull tight. You may repeat this a few times to secure. When you’re done securing the keychain onto your sunflower, weave in all the ends.
And, you’re done! You have a cute sunflower keychain!
This is the end of the pattern! I hope you enjoyed it, and thank you for reading! Do you like this pattern? Will you try it out? Tell me how it goes in the comments!
I hope everyone is having a great Monday! I’ll be back on Thursday with another fun post! Bye until then!
