Spooky Halloween monsters keychain pattern
Have you started preparations for Halloween weekend?- Do you love monsters? – here is my suggestion for you.
Meet our pocket monsters which are a great way to decorate your trick or treat bags, school bags of your children. They are cute instead of scarry and will cheer up your kid. Here in Bulgaria we don’t celebrate Halloween and I am little confused what can I make for this scarry, spooky weekend. I have made this pocket monster last year as keychains but never had the chance to post and share them with you( I guess everything has its own time). Scrolling in my instagram or Facebook I see so many cute and different stuff that crafters around the world make each year as costumes, home decoration, toys and etc, i just wanted to have my salt in the soup as others. Suddenly I saw my pocket monster starring at me from my finished but waiting for pattern project box and thought that the day had come.
You can use different yarn and color combinations to make them. Change the face expression and you will have totally new buddy to carry around. This pocket monsters can be used as keychains and they are big enough so your keys will never be lost again.If you want an ad free pdf file you can purchase is right here for unexpensive price..

I am just wondering how the keychain are attached to these. I have seen lots of patterns for keychain amigurumis but no one explains how to attach the keychain.
I attach mine with tapestry needle and yarn. You can just crochet a short chain and sew it then attach the keychain ring to it.
Sorry but the free pattern for the 2nd monster, (pink and yellow one doesnt have the instructions for the tongue please could you add this. Also the other 2 where can I get the free patterns for those?
thank you much appreciated
I will add the instructions for the tongue. We have only paid version but I think I will update the free version as we get many questions regarding all the monsters.
