Crochet Animal Keychains, keyrings, sheep ladybird owl, Pattern No7, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 7 Sheep/Ladybird/Owl Keychains ***

This is a crochet pattern for 3 cute little animal keyrings - a sheep, an owl and a ladybird.

These are really quick to make and are wonderful little gifts. They are also ideal for party bags or to sell at a fundraising event. They use very little yarn so you can use up any scraps you may have left over from other projects!! The owl pattern looks great in any colour, even multicoloured yarn. Time to attack that yarn stash!!

You can attach either a standard keyring or a mobile phone lanyard to the animals, so it can be hung from a wide variety of items - keys, purses, pencil cases, phones, bags, etc. {And I've just discovered that, if you leave out the crocheted loop, they also look great appliqued onto plain crochet hats, an instant character hat!!

Each shape measures approximately 2 ins/5cm.

I've also included photographs of some of the crochet steps to more clearly explain each instruction.

Please feel free to sell the items you make from this pattern but please do NOT sell, distribute or reproduce this pattern in anyway. I would also appreciate you crediting my little shop when you sell the finished items :-). Thank you for your respect.

My patterns are written in both UK/European and US/American crochet terms in two separate files. The PDF file attached to this listing is written in UK/European terms. The zip file attached to this listing contains both the UK/European file and the US/American file. (If you are unsure which one to use, the UK/European file uses terms like htr=half treble and the US/American file uses terms like sc=single crochet and hdc=half double crochet. Hope this helps!)

Thanks so much for looking!! R♥

I ♥ Crochet!!!

I love all things crafty - knitting, sewing, lacemaking, embroidery, but my true passion is crochet. I was taught to crochet by a wonderful lady and am lucky to now be able to pass that knowledge on to others, in my classes and through my written patterns.

I hope you like my little designs. Happy Crocheting! R♥
