Learn how to make this adorable heart crochet beanie keychain, free crochet pattern by Buddy Luvs Crochet, just in time for Valentine’s day!
Created by guest designer Nadine from Buddy Luvs Crochet
A few years ago I heard about an amazing cause called Hat Not Hate, an anti-bullying campaign that was launched by Lion Brand Yarn Company. In this act of craftivism makers have come together by making blue hats to be distributed to schools to remind students that it’s cool to be kind.
I was inspired to make this keychain by Ashley of A Crafty Concept. She designed a beautiful Tunisian crochet heart beanie that I made as one of my donations.
I loved it so much that I wanted to make a small heart-shaped reminder for us to be kinder to one another. That is how the Kind Heart crochet beanie keychain came to be! This pattern is quick, easy & the perfect stash buster! You can wear it on your keys, backpack or hook it onto your wip bag.
