Granny Square Keychain Free Pattern

A Crochet Pattern by: Christina Ryan

Design Inspiration

As I was thinking about designing a few keychains for my first blog hop, I thought of when the first day of the hop was! It is Granny Square Day internationally so of course I needed to do a granny square keychain for the first pattern for the blog hop! This is one of the easiest granny squares I have ever done because it is just three rounds.

This is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern! It works up within an hour or less!

It is the featured pattern for Day 1 of the Back to School Keychain Blog Hop hosted by yours truly! More information later down the page. This pattern will remain free on my blog forever! You can always purchase the PDF version anytime!
