In the Netherlands, It has been a beautiful May month! The warmest since a century!
Well, what shall I say: ‘We have that in our pocket’ I really enjoyed it, spent a lot of time in the sun, walked outside and also painted an exterior wall! The outside wall, under our balcony. -I have a dike house and next to a garden we also have a balcony- (actually even 2) Under this balcony I can now sit and crochet. It has become a very cozy sitting area. And do you know what I hooked? This fun keychain! A friend asked me if I could crocheting something like that, well I can and I want to! And there he is! I have worked out the pattern for you, so you can also crochet it! Read on quickly!

Pattern Flip Flip slipper key chain hooks
Crochet the sole in rounds, you do not have to close the tour with a ss
Make a release chain of 7
Round 1. In the 3rd chain from the crochet hook you crochet 1 half double crochet (hdc), 3 half double crochet (hdc), in the last stitch you crochet 4 half double crochet
(you now get to the other side of the sole) Crochet 1 double crochet in the next 3 stitches, in the last stitch crochet 2 double crochet.Note: the 1st 2 chain = 1st half double crochet (hdc)
= 14 stitches
Round 2. In the first two stitches 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch, 4 half double crochet (hdc), 3x 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch, 3 half double crochet (hdc), 2x 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch.
= 21 stitches
Round 3. 2x 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch, 3 half double crochet (hdc), 3 slip stitch, 2 half double crochet (hdc), 3x 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch, 2 half double crochet (hdc), 3 slip stitch, 2 half double crochet (hdc), 2 half double crochet (hdc) in 1 stitch. Now work 2 half double crochet (hdc) in the first stitch of the next round, slip stitch, tie off
= 28 stitches
Tie off and crochet this sole another time
Round 4. Put both soles together and take a contrasting color. Hook them together exactly, to each other. Do this with a single crochet. However, on the sides where we have hooked a slip stitch, you hook a slipstitch, on the sides you only hook 1 extra. Instead of 3 you hook 4 slip stitches. When you are back at the beginning, you attach and work the wire end neatly away.
With the same contrasting color, attach in the following way;
Round 1. Place your crochet hook from right to left through the last half double crochet (hdc) of the 1st round. (The right side of the sole.) Attach the thread and hook 1 single crochet around this stitch, chain 9. With a slip stitch attach it in the 1st single crochet -next to the last crocheted slip stitch-. 1 chain and turn.
Row 2. Crochet 1 single crochet in the next 5 chain, 1 slip stitch in the last 4 chain. Now you are back at the beginning.
Row 3. Crochet 1 chain and turn, in the slip stitch of the previous row 1 slip stitch= 4 slip stitch
Now chain 5 and on the other side fasten him with a slip stitch in the 1st slip stich from the other side.
Chain 1 and turn.
Row 4. Crochet in the 5 chain 1 single crochet to the middle. Tie off and work your wires away.
I have attached a feather and a leather tassel. He is also very beautiful on my bag!
