Sunflower Keychain Crochet Pattern

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!


How to Start Crocheting: A Collab With BetsyJane

Welcome back to Books and Hooks! I hope you guys had a good weekend and are having a good start to your week! 😊

So, a little while ago, I asked BetsyJane if she wanted to do a collab post with me, and she said yes! I would definitely recommend checking out her blog, poppyseeds! She has some amazing posts! Make sure to go check out her collab post as well! It’s about how to start knitting!

In today’s blog post, I’ll go through how to start crocheting, from buying materials to finding easy beginner patterns online! If you’ve been wanting to start crocheting but didn’t know where to start, this is the post for you!

Gathering materials

Buying materials for crocheting is a very simple thing. All you really need is yarn and a crochet hook. However, with that being said, there are still a few things to look into when picking out your materials. Let’s talk a little bit about it!



  • Avoid darkly colored yarns. While using black and dark yarns, it can be hard to see your stitches, which can be frustrating for beginners.
  • Using white yarns can also be frustrating to use for the same reason.
  • I recommend using a light/medium-colored yarn, such as light blue or green. Something that is easy to see.


  • On the yarn label, it should say the weight number, which corresponds to how thick the yarn is. (Picture below.)
  • #0 weight is very thin, while #6 is very thick.
  • Each number has a different name (#0 is often called lace yarn, #1 is often called fingering yarn, #2 is often called fingering yarn, #3 is often called sport or DK yarn, #4 is often called worsted yarn, #5 is often called chunky or bulky yarn, #6 is often called super bulky yarn)
  • I would recommend a #4 weight yarn (worsted weight yarn), which is of medium thickness. This is usually the easiest for beginners to use because it’s not too thin or thick.


  • Three of the most common yarn fibers for crocheters are acrylic, wool, and cotton.
  • Acrylic yarn is a popular choice because it is widely available, inexpensive, and can come in a wide variety of colors. Some acrylic yarns do split, however, this is pretty uncommon.
  • Wool yarn is another good choice! It is very forgiving, so if you mess up on a stitch or make a mistake (which is bound to happen when you’re learning to crochet) wool is usually very easy to unravel and re-use. One thing to be aware of is that some people may be allergic to wool.
  • Because cotton yarn is not as elastic as wool or acrylic, it is a slightly less popular choice for beginners. However, if it’s summer, cotton is cooler and more breathable, and it is a good choice for those warmer months. It also really depends on what project you are working on.
  • Even though they can look really pretty, I would recommend avoiding fluffy yarns or novelty yarns at first, because the stitches are extremely hard to see when working with those yarns.
  • To review, I would recommend smooth cotton, acrylic, or wool yarn, depending on the project you’re working on. Avoid eyelash yarns and any fluffy or textured yarns.
This yarn is a #3 weight (or DK) yarn. The suggested hook size is a 6 mm or J-10 hook. You can typically find this information on all yarn labels!
Here is where it shows the fiber content. This yarn is a mix of cotton and polyester.

  • Hooks can be made out of aluminum, bamboo, and plastic.
  • Each material has its own pros and cons.
  • Aluminum hooks are generally inexpensive, last for a while, and are widely available. However, they can sometimes be painful to your hands. Because of this, some aluminum crochet hooks do have plastic or rubber handles for more comfort.
  • Bamboo crochet hooks have a good grip, so if you’re having trouble with your yarn slipping from your hook, bamboo hooks may help. They are a bit more expensive than the other materials, though.
  • Plastic crochet hooks are very affordable, and they’re lighter, so plastic’s usually used for larger sizes of hooks.
  • People typically have their own preferences as to what material they enjoy using. I would recommend experimenting with different types of hooks to find what works best for you.


  • For each size of yarn, there is a corresponding hook size.
  • On the yarn label, it should say what hook to use. (Shown in the photo above.)
  • If you’re using a #4 (worsted) weight yarn, then the hook size is usually a 5.5 or 6-mm hook. Check the yarn label to see what size to use, though.
  • There are metric and US crochet hook sizes. Here is a helpful chart for conversions.

Other materials

Although yarn and a hook are all you really need to get started, there are a few other useful materials you can buy to help you on your crochet journey.

  • It’s a good idea to have a nice pair of scissors to cut your yarn with. You can just use some scissors you have around the house, but it never hurts to buy a small pair to carry around with you when you are crocheting.
  • You can use a yarn needle to weave in the cut ends on your crochet project. There are plastic yarn needles, metal ones, sharp needles, dull ones, and curved ones. Plastic and metal are both good, but a few plastic ones I’ve had have broken, so just keep that in mind.
  • Sometimes, it’s wise to buy a little pouch to house all of your tools. If you bring your crochet project on a car ride, you’ll want to put your yarn needle, hook, scissors, and other supplies in this pouch, so you don’t lose anything. There are some that come with little loops to hold your crochet hooks and with little zipper pockets and such. You can buy something like that, or a simple pouch with one pocket, which you can usually find at Dollar Tree or Walmart.

Starting out

Now that you have your materials, you want to start crocheting. But, how do you start? Well, there are a few different options.

Take a class

  • Taking a crochet class is a good idea because you can have someone there explaining to you how to do different stitches, and you can ask them questions.
  • I don’t have any experience with a class, because I just taught myself to crochet through online blogs and YouTube videos, but I’ve heard some good things about crochet classes.
  • Classes can, however, be a bit pricey sometimes, so just keep that in mind.

Have someone teach you

  • If you have somebody in your family, or one of your friends, who crochets, you can always ask them to teach you!
  • I’ve been teaching my little sister how to crochet, which is really great. It allows her to ask me when she has any questions, and she can see in person how to do different stitches.
  • One drawback is that not everyone has that amount of time, so this might not be the best for everybody.


  • Sometimes, if I’m trying to learn a new stitch, I just don’t want to watch a YouTube video (especially if I’m out in public or something) blogs are a great alternative.
  • Blogs can be a great way to learn crocheting, too! There are a lot of people out there who post helpful tutorials about basic crochet on their blogs.
  • I like it best when I find a blog that has a lot of pictures to show how to do something.


  • YouTube videos are a good way to learn. Unlike reading blog posts about how to crochet, you can actually see someone doing it, which is how a lot of people learn best.
  • There are many YouTubers out there who are great crochet teachers.
  • It’s also free.
  • YouTube is mainly how I learned, and it was very helpful to me.

Some of my favorite resources

Stitches and patterns

Now that you know a few ways to learn crochet, let’s look at how to practice crochet so that you can become an amazing crocheter!

  • If you aren’t taking a class and you are just learning from YouTube and blogs, first, look up how to make the foundation for most patterns: a chain! Once you’ve mastered that, you can look up tutorials on how to do the basic stitches for crochet: single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, and treble crochet. Here is a playlist on YouTube with instructions on all of the basic stitches!
  • Practice making swatches! When I was first starting to crochet, one way I practiced my stitches was by making practice swatches. Crochet a short chain, then practice making some different stitches. You can unravel it and practice the stitch again, or work on some different stitches.
  • Make some easy projects! Scarves, washcloths, baby blankets, and basically any other project that’s just a plain square or rectangle are amazing beginner projects! A lot of them have simple stitch repetitions.

Finding patterns online:

  • Almost all of the patterns I make are ones I find on the internet.
  • A lot of YouTubers and bloggers share amazing free patterns that they design.
  • I think that YouTube videos are really good for beginners because they can see what’s happening as someone does it. Patterns may be kind of hard for beginners to read.
  • Once you’ve learned to read patterns, I would recommend watching the YouTube video as you follow along with the pattern.

Buying patterns.

  • Whether it’s in a crochet book, or if you’re buying a printable pattern on Etsy, there are many crochet patterns to buy out there!
  • I don’t tend to buy patterns a lot because I can usually find whatever pattern I’m looking for free online.
  • However, there can be some amazing patterns out there for sale. Make sure you know how to read a pattern before you buy one, though!


  • Some of my favorite beginner projects are washcloths, scarves, headbands/ear warmers, baby blankets, and simple hats!
  • The pattern you find should list the yarn to use. It might list a specific brand, or just say “worsted weight yarn.” Either way, make sure the yarn is suited for the specific project you’re making.
  • As I mentioned earlier, I think that video tutorials are easier for beginners to understand compared to blog tutorials, because in YouTube videos, you can see what the person is doing better than if it’s written out.

Crochet Flower Chain: Beginner Pattern

Hello and happy Monday! How’s the start to everybody’s week?

As I mentioned in my last post, today I am posting a crochet pattern! It is for an easy, quick, and simple crochet flower chain! 🌸

Made using Lion Brand Coboo yarn! One of my favorite yarns!

You can make this chain as long as you want, and use it for many different things. You could turn it into a garland, a bracelet, a curtain tie, a clothing accessory, a headband…so many possibilities!


  • Yarn (the size and amount depends on what you’ll end up using it for)
  • Coordinating crochet hook
  • Yarn needle


1: Chain 5. Slip stitch in the first chain to create a loop. *Chain 2. Do 2 double crochets, a treble crochet, and two more double crochets in the loop. Slip stitch in the loop.*

2: This creates one petal. Repeat the instructions between * four more times to create five petals, and to finish your first flower. The stitches will get a little crowded toward the end, but that’s okay.

3: When you’ve finished this flower, you’ll want to chain 10 or 15 ( depending on how far apart you want each flower to be). Then, you’ll slip stitch in the fifth chain from the hook, creating a loop.

4: Repeat the stitches between * five times into this loop to complete your next flower. Then, just keep chaining 10, slip stitching into the fifth chain, and completing the stitches between * five times into this loop. When you’ve made it your desired length, fasten off, weave in the ends, and you’re done!

As you see, this pattern is super easy! You really just repeat a series of stitches for each flower, and make as many flowers as you desire.

I hope you liked this pattern! Do you like crochet? Will you be trying out out? I’d love to chat in the comments!

Have a wonderful day and week, everybody! ❤️

10 Minute Crochet Easter Bunny Keychains

Hello everyone!! Sorry I haven’t posted for a while; I’ve been pretty busy with getting ready for Easter, doing soccer, and school. I’ve decided to just post once a week for now, at least for a while, instead of twice a week. I’m going to choose Monday to be my posting day, but I’m just adding a quick little post here because I wanted to have it out before Easter (which is this Sunday…I can’t believe it!)

Today I’m sharing a pattern that I came up with a little while ago: Easter bunny keychains!! Let’s just get right into it!

────── ♡ ──────


  • Worsted weight (#4) yarn
  • 3.75 mm crochet hook (any size really works, but if you use a bigger hook, you’ll have a bigger bunny)
  • Darning needle
  • Key chain


  • The chains at the beginning of the rounds do not count as stitches
  • You should know some basic stitches for this pattern
  • The numbers between the parentheses at the end of the row are the number of stitches you should have

Abbreviations and stitches

  • St – stitch
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Dc – double crochet
  • Mc – magic circle
  • Ch – chain


Make a mc, and ch 2.
Do 10 dc into the circle. Sl st to the first dc to join. (10)
Ch 2. Work 3 dc in each of the next 3 sts. Turn. (3)
Now, we’re going to make the ears! Ch 5, sl st into the first st. Sl st into each of the next 2 sts. Ch 5, sl st into the same st you just did.
Fasten off!
Using a darning needle, get the yarn you just fastened off, and bring it back to the center st. Attach the keychain.
Weave in the ends, and you’re done!! These really do just take about ten minutes, and are very simple if you know basic crochet stitches! You also don’t have to attach a keychain, and just have a little bunny! I also made a little one with crochet thread and attached it to earrings, and it was super cute as well! Just let your creativity flow!

I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in a blog post where I give step-by-step instructions with pictures on how to make different crochet stitches for beginners? If so, please comment!

Simple Crochet Autumn Pumpkin Pattern

Helloooooo! I hope you’re having a good week so far! Today, I’m posting a crochet pattern for these cute little pumpkins! I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I haven’t posted since Thursday the seventh. I’ve just been pretty busy with school, and my friend came over last weekend. Okay, I hope you like it!


Last year, I tried to make some of these with a worsted weight yarn, but it wasn’t that strong, and the pumpkin didn’t turn out. So, this year, I was determined to make a (successful) pumpkin. I looked up some patterns after getting the yarn, but most of them used up a lot of yarn, or they were just not right for the yarn I was using. So, I decided to make up a pattern!

The Yarn

For these pumpkins, I used a size 6, bulky yarn. You can use any bulky yarn, but for these, I used Lion Brand Yarns Wool Ease Thick & Quick in the color Oatmeal. I went to Walmart last weekend, and my dad let me pick out some yarn. I chose this because I loved the nice fall color and I was thinking about making a hat or scarf. But after thinking about it for a while, I decided to make some lovely fall pumpkins.

This yarn is a wool and acrylic blend. I normally don’t like using wool because I have found it to be scratchy and itchy, but mixed with the acrylic, this yarn is nice and soft and easy to use. With just one ball of this yarn, I was able to make three pumpkins and I still had some left over!


Note: in the picture, I showed a 5.5 mm crochet hook and a tape measure, but you don’t need these.


  • There is no specific gauge for this pattern
  • This pattern is a beginner pattern
  • The number in between the parentheses are the number of stitches you should have at the end of the row
  • The chain ones at the beginning of the rows do not count as stitches

Stitches & Abbreviations

  • Chain – Ch
  • Single crochet – Sc
  • Single crochet back loop only – Sc blo
  • Slip stitch – Sl st
  • Skip – Sk
  • Repeat – Rep


Ch 11.
Row 1: Sk the first st. Sc in each of the other sts.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc blo in every st. (10)

Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in every st. (10)

Rep rows 2 and 3 until you get to row 20. (10)

Fasten off and leave a long tail.

Put the wrong sides (the sides without ridges) together. Using your yarn needle and long tail, whip stitch the two sides together.
Now, you should have a cylinder shaped thing with the top and bottom open.

Next, weave your needle through the rows on top of the piece. Pull tight, closing off the top. You may need to go over this a few times to secure it.

Make sure your needle and thread are inside the pumpkin. Pull them out the bottom of the pumpkin. So, make sure your needle and tail end are up the top and out of the way.

Now, stuff the pumpkin! Make sure you don’t stuff it so much that the stuffing is popping out. It should be pretty soft, but not too stuffed. If you do anything, understuff it.

Now, weave the yarn needle in and out of the rows, like you did with the other side. But don’t pull tight yet! You still have to put the stem in. I crocheted an i-cord using three strands of worsted weight yarn and the 9 mm hook. But you can use a twig, and I’ve even seen people use cinnamon sticks.

Now, you should have the pumpkin looking like this. If you pull the yarn end you used to sew everything together, the top would close up. You should also have your stem.

Put the stem in the opening. If you are using a crocheted piece, you can use the end from that to sew it to the pumpkin a little bit. If you are using something else, you can use hot glue if you are thinking it will come out.

Okay, now pull the end from sewing the pumpkin, and the top should close up! The stem should be in there, and secured.

You should have something like this now. You can leave it like this and weave in the ends, but I like doing something else.
Using the yarn and needle, go down and into the bottom of the pumpkin. Come back out on the top. This will make the yarn go down like in the picture above. Move it so it is on the row in between the ridges. Pull a little to tighten. Don’t pull too tight. Repeat this until all the spaces between the ridges are completed.
This is what the bottom will look like!

Weave in the remaining ends.

And you’re done! I hope you like this pattern. Please comment if there are any ways I can improve my writing, or if there are any typos. Have a great day!

Crochet Puppy Lovey Pattern

Hey everybody! So, recently, I have been going through all the stuff in my room because my dad took out the carpets and is putting in hardwood flooring! So, we had to take everything out of our room, and now that hes done with the floor, we’re putting everything back into our room. I found a paper that I had written a pattern for this cute puppy lovey! I had been meaning to post the pattern for a while, but then I couldn’t find the paper. But now that I found the pattern, I’m posting it! I hope you like it!


  • DK yarn. I used the Comfy Cotton Blend in the colors sugarcane for the blanket and whipped cream for the head
  • 5 mm crochet hook
  • 3.25 mm crochet hook
  • Two safety eyes and a nose or black yarn
  • Yarn needle


  • This is a crochet amigurumi project. It is for more advanced crocheters, but if you want to, you can try it
  • The head is worked in a continuous spiral. The rounds are not joined at the end.


For the blanket:

Make a granny square! I have a pattern for one here. Use the 5mm hook and the yarn color sugarcane. You can make it as big as you want! Once you finish, change the yarn to the white color, and single crochet in each stitch and chain around. Fasten off and weave in ends.

For the head: (Use cream colored yarn and 3.25 mm hook.)

Round one: In a magic ring, single crochet six. (6)

Round two: Increase in each stitch. (12)

Round three: *Increase in one stitch, single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat from * around. (18)

Round four: *Increase in one stitch, single crochet in the next two stitches. Repeat from * around. (24)

Round five: *Increase in one stitch, single crochet in the next three stitches. Repeat from * around. (30)

Round six through twenty-one: One single crochet in each stitch. (30)

Insert the two safety eyes in between the ninth and tenth rounds about nine stitches apart. Put the nose in between the thirteenth and fourteenth rounds in between the eyes. You can adjust the eyes and nose until you think they look right. Fasten them with the backings. If you don’t have safety eyes and a nose, you can use black yarn to sew eyes and a nose onto the head with a yarn needle.

After you’ve fastened on the safety eyes and nose, or sewed them on, stuff the head. Keep stuffing it every few rounds for the rest of the head.

Round twenty-two: *One single crochet in each of the next eight stitches, decrease. Repeat from * around. (27)

Round twenty-three: *One single crochet in each of the next seven stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (24)

Round twenty-four: *One single crochet in each of the next six stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (21)

Round twenty-five: *One single crochet in each of the next five stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (18)

Round twenty-six: *One single crochet in each of the next four stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (15)

Round twenty-seven: *One single crochet in each of the next three stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (12)

Add any last stuffing you might need at this round.

Round twenty-eight: *One single crochet in each of the next two stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (6)

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Using a yarn needle, weave the tail through the stitches. Pull tight to close.

Ears: (Using cream colored yarn and a 3.25mm hook)

Round one: In a magic ring, single crochet five. (5)

Round two: One single crochet in each stitch. (5)

Round three: Two single crochets in each stitch. (10)

Round four: One single crochet in each stitch.(10)

Round five: *One single crochet in one stitch, increase in the next stitch. Repeat from * around. (15)

Round six: One single crochet in each stitch. (15)

Round seven: *One single crochet in each of the next two stitches, increase in the next stitch. Repeat from * around. (20)

Round eight and nine: One single crochet in each stitch. (20)

Round ten: *One single crochet in each of the next two stitches, decrease. Rep from * around. (15)

Round eleven: One single crochet in each stitch. (15)

Round twelve. *One single crochet in the next stitch, decrease. Rep from * around. (10)

Round thirteen: One single crochet in each stitch. (10)

Round fourteen: Decrease in each stitch. (5)

Round fifteen: One single crochet in each stitch. (5)

Fasten off and leave a long tail.


Using the long end from the ends of the ears, sew the ears to the head. Sew them between about the ninth and tenth rounds. You can switch this to where you think they’ll look good! To sew them on, use a yarn needle and sew them to the head using the long tail. I used a whip stitch, but you can sew them however you want.

Then, using the long tail from when you finished the head, sew it onto the blanket. Same as before, you can sew it however you want. Just make sure it’s secure.

And you’re done! I hope you liked this pattern. Please tell me if there is anything that I can do to improve my posts. Feedback is always appreciated! Have a great day! Bye.

How to Crochet a Granny Square

Do you want to learn to crochet a granny square? Well, here’s a great place to start! I will cover how to crochet a classic granny square and I’ll share a few variations that you can do. Granny squares are great beginner projects, and you can attach them all together to make a blanket, scarf, or purse, or you can make small ones and use them for coasters or washcloths.

What is a granny square?

A granny square is a classic crochet motif that is easy to recognize by its appearance. It is made using sets of three double crochets and chains.

How to crochet a granny square

You’ll need any yarn and the corresponding hook size.

To begin, chain 4. Slip stitch to the first chain you made to form a loop.

Round one: Chain three. (Counts as a double crochet.) Double crochet twice into the loop. *Chain three. Double crochet three times into the loop.* Repeat the instructions between * twice more. Chain three and slip stitch into the first double crochet you made.

Round two: Slip stitch in the next two stitches and into the chain three space. Chain three (Counts as a double crochet.) Double crochet twice into the chain three space. Chain three. Double crochet three times into the chain three space. *Chain one, and do three double crochets into the next chain three space. Chain three. Double crochet three times into the same space.* Repeat the instructions between * three times more. Chain one and slip stitch into the first double crochet you made in the round.

For the rest of the granny square, repeat this pattern: For the first corner: *Slip stitch into the next two stitches and the chain three space. Chain three (Counts as a double crochet.) Double crochet twice into the same space. Chain three. Double crochet three times into the same space*. In all of the chain one spaces: *Chain one. Double crochet three times into the chain one space from the previous round.* For the corners: *Chain one. Double crochet three times into the chain three space from the previous round. Chain three. Double crochet three times into the same space.* Rep all of these steps around, depending on if you are at a corner, chain one space, or the beginning. When you get to the end of the round, chain one and slip stitch to the first stitch.

You can make these as big as you want. When you want to be done with it, just fasten off and weave in the end! Then you’re done! This is a very simple pattern to follow, and it’s easy to memorize. Hope you enjoyed this post! Have a wonderful day! ❤
