How to customize your crochet key cover?

You can make them in various styles. Make a monster with one eye, or make it with two. Why not add one big eye and two mini eyes below? Not to mention that you can use different colors for each of them.

The pattern is written in US crochet terms.
We will crochet in continuous rounds and will not join the rounds in the end.
For this pattern, I used sport-weight yarn but you can also use DK-weight yarn. Another suitable yarn for this project will be a lightweight yarn. Just make sure to use a suitable crochet hook. To have a more sturdy crochet key cover you can use a size or two smaller than the suggested on the yarn label.
I did not tie my chain on top but you can do that to prevent the chain from slipping. You can place a wooden ball as well.
Materials you”ll need
- sport weight yarn- I used Yarn art jeans
- crochet hook size 3mm
- key ring
- tapestry needle
SC- single crochet
SS- slip stitch
Inc- increase (make 2 SC in the same stitch)
MR- magic ring
– repeat the stitches in the ** indicated times
FO- fasten off
