Mushroom Chapstick/Lighter Holder Keychain Crochet Pattern

Hi everyone! This is actually my first ever written (and posted) crochet pattern. This keychain's been my best-received gift and best-selling item in my Etsy shop, so whoever you make it for will love it!

With it being my first pattern, if you find any errors, confusions or questions while you're following it, please comment below or reach out to me on any of my socials and I'd be happy to help you out :-)

If you like this pattern and want to show your support, you can purchase a handy-dandy PDF version (with process pictures) from my Ravelry store!

Notes: This isn't quite an amigurumi project, but it does follow similar ideas--if you're unfamiliar with magic circle/magic ring/adjustable rings, as well as the invisible single crochet decrease, I recommend looking up some YouTube tutorials on those as I do use them in this pattern. I also recommend using stitch markers to denote the first stitch of each round.

Mushroom Chapstick/Lighter Holder Keychain

Pattern © Aster Rogers, 2020-2021


Hook: 4.0 mm/G hook (or use 3.5 mm or smaller if you have looser tension)

Stitch marker


Lobster claw clasp (or other keychain hardware of your choice)


YO - yarn over

  • Do not join at the end of rounds unless instructed to do so.


With white, make MC

Round 1 Ch 1, 6 sc into MC (6)

Round 2 *INC in next st, 1 sc in next 2 st* twice (8)

Round 3 *INC, 3 sc* twice (10)

Round 4 *INC, 4 sc* twice (12)

Round 5 *INC, 5 sc* twice (14)

Trim beginning tail and flip inside/RS out

Round 6 1 sc into each st (14)

Round 7 *DEC over next 2 st, 1 sc in next 5 st* twice (12)

Round 8 *DEC, 4 sc* twice (10)

Round 9 DEC over next 2 st, 8 sc (9)

Round 10 sc in each st around (9)

Repeat round 10 until body reaches desired height

Last round sl st, ch 20, pull up loop of last ch so work doesn’t unravel, and cut yarn leaving a moderate to long tail for future stitches.


With red, ch 4.

Round 1 15 dc into first ch, sl st to join to top of ch 3 (counts as first dc) (16)

Round 2 ch 3, 1 dc into next st (not the joining/ch 3 st), 2 dc into next st, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* 6 more times, 1 dc in next st, 1 dc in sl st of previous round (makes 2 dc in last/first st) (24)

Round 3 ch 1, 1 sc in BLO of each st around, sl st to first sc of round to join (not ch 1) (24)

FO, flip inside/RS out, and weave in ends.

Take a long piece of white (at least 20 inches) and your yarn needle, come up from the WS on one side of the top of a st in round 1, going over the st insert the needle on the other side of st, repeat at least 2 more times around same st, sk next st and repeat process around every other st of each row (or as much/little as you wish). FO (tie off a couple times to secure) and trim/weave in ends. Pull the ch 20 of the body through the hole in the center of the cap, through the lobster claw clasp (or other keychain clasp of your choice), and back through the cap hole, then reinsert your hook into the loop of last ch and sl st to st on the opposite side of the top of the body. FO and weave in ends.

Strawberry Beret/Tam/Slouch Hat Free Crochet Pattern

I'm back with my second-ever crochet pattern! This hat gets me comments and compliments wherever I go--which these days is really only to the post office or grocery store. It's a little reminiscent of a particular confectionary cartoon character but I didn't realize that until after the fact. It's still cute though! Questions or comments? Please send them my way in the comment section down below or via any of my socials! If you like this pattern and want to show your support, you can purchase a handy-dandy PDF version from my Ravelry store ! The PDF version also has additional helpful pictures and stitch explanations. Some Notes: The first half of this pattern is basically just making a crochet circle; a really nice video that explains visually how to do this is here I don’t know anything about gauge but I have generally somewhat tighter tension and used a 6.00 mm/J hook and ended up with about 20 to 21 inch circumference around the head with a little bit of stretch.
