Mini Monster Keychain Crochet Pattern

Crochet a very cute mini monster Amigurumi keychain with this free monster amigurumi pattern. This is a small crochet project that you can make in about one hour. It is a great pattern for left over yarn, because it is so small. I love making keychain amigurumi, because they just take a little bit of time to create a very cute gift.

I made the little monster keychain version from sport weight cotton yarn. But you can also crochet it from bigger yarn, for example plush chenille yarn, your keychain will become bigger and very huggable.

I also have a full video on YouTube on how to crochet every step of this Monster keychain:
