Yo-Yo Keychain Critters
Posted 23 October 2007 - 03:44 PM
I used this yoyo pattern to make the 'face'. Don't fasten off at the end of yo yo. Instead, you will chain one, and leave a length (to sew/ sl st to the yo yo with). (Cut your yarn, but do not fasten it off yet. Take your hook out of the loop.) Then take your keychain/clasp and put the tail end through the keychain. Then, put your hook back in the loop and sl st to the first stitch of the yo you. Weave in ends...
Then, for the ears:
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.
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.
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. Thanks and have fun.

I have got to stop looking at patterns or I'll never get any of my other "old" projects finished.
