So I've googled for patterns for knitted keychains and found nothing. Does anyone have any ideas to kick-start my creativity for knitting keychains? Or maybe ... has anyone come across any patterns for such a thing? :thinking:

Since nobody has responded, I'll send you a not too helpful response! I know I've seen them on the internet. The one I recall was a shamrock, but didn't bookmark it. There was also a i-cord (I think) person in a magazine that I was thinking of making into a keychain. I'll go through my mags this evening and let you know which mag.

I made a baby bootie keychain.. I just knitted it from a regular bootie pattern, but used a DK weight yarn on size 1 needles. Then I crocheted a tiny chain for the loop and stuck it on my keyring.

I think you could do this with any miniature knit pattern. :) Here's some mini's...

Hair net (?), Skirt, baby bonnet (http://www.buttercupminiatures.co.uk/free_knitting_patterns.htm)

If I were to knit a keychain, I think I'd do one of those bitty sweaters from Weekend Knitting. Except a little bittier. ;)

You've got some ideas now!

The pattern I saw in the magazine is for a key chain. It's in Knit.1 (Spring/Summer 2005). The keychain is a robot (not a person!).

I was trying to find that site with the shamrock, but found this - you may not have to go to a size 1 needle: http://people.delphiforums.com/knit_chat/knitchat/patterns/stocking1.htm
