Yo-Yo Keychain Critters
Then, for the ears:
Bear/Mouse:Join with a sl st in the 2nd sc to the right of the keychain. In same space, sc, hdc, and sl st. Then fasten off. Do the same in the 2nd sc to the left of the keychain. Weave in all your ends.
Cat/Pig: Join with a sl st in the 2nd chain to the right of the keychain. In same space, sc, dc, ch 3, and sl st. Fasten off. Do the same in the 2nd sc to the left of the keychain. Weave in all your ends.
Pig snout:Ch 2. 5 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Sl st to join. Fasten off leaving a length to sew onto face. Pull starting chain tight to close 'hole'. Sew on over the hole in the yo yo.
For whiskers for the mouse or cat: Using size 10 crochet cotton (for doilies, etc.), cut four pieces approx. 3 1/2" long. Using a smaller hook (or the same size, I guess it doesn't matter), and two threads together, pull a loop through in 'cheek' area. Pull ends through as if you are making fringe. Do the same on the other side. Cut ends even. Sew or glue eyes on. I just found some in the bottom of my sewing basket so I don't know the exact size I used. Feel free to make these for charity or personal use, gifts.... but the yo yo pattern is not mine, and is copyrighted. So are the ears. What that means is you cannot sell this pattern. I don't care if you sell the actual keychain at bazaars or craft shows, though. Thanks and have fun. :)
