Lucky Hat Key Chain

Crochet Lucky Hat Key Chain- Pops de Milk

St Patrick’s Day is always a blast with good friends paired with Guinness and Irish whiskey. But rather than wearing giant green leprechaun hats, I thought I’d celebrate St Patty’s Day my own way by making a little crochet lucky hat key chain!

This is a simple pattern and great for beginners who are looking for a feeling of accomplishment you get from finishing a new project. This little green hat have a golden buckle that could be made with golden yarn, but really, at this size it’s better if you find a piece of gold cloth or felt and just sew it on. Initially, I was thinking about putting this on a necklace, or as part of a crochet bracelet of lucky charms. That’s very possible, but personally, I like it best as a key chain. Or maybe as a fashion accessory for a leprechaun amigurumi.

I used a thinner yarn for the clover than the hat itself and it’s black band. And to attach this cute little hat to something, you’ll need a key chain which you can find at your local craft store, or online at Etsy or Amazon.
