Frankey Keychain

Frankey Keychain is a fun companion to have. He loves swinging on keys or tagging along on a backpack.

Skill Level: Easy

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Frankey is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Frankey is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately two inches tall.  Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
