Supplies for Crocheting Keychain

Here’s what you’ll need to crochet a keychain.


Your crochet keychain pattern will give you instructions for the correct yarn weight, and often recommend a specific yarn. For your convenience, I am going to give you my personal yarn preferences.

You can substitute yarns, but make sure to choose one that is a similar weight and fiber content. This will help you achieve the correct gauge, and ensure that your key chain has a similar drape to the one in the pattern photos.

Remember, whether you use the recommended yarn or not, it’s crucial to make a gauge swatch to make sure you’re on the right track.

How much yarn will you need? Depending on the size of your keychain you want to make, or how many keychains you are making, the size will vary.

For small- medium sized keychains, one skein of yarn will be more than enough. Don’t worry; your pattern will let you know how much is necessary. Check out this Caron yarn or Lion brand yarn.


You’ll also need a crochet hook in the appropriate size. Again, your pattern will give you these details. Then, make a gauge swatch. After making your swatch, you’ll know whether you need to size up or down.

And, if you’re using a different yarn than the one specified in the pattern, you may need to adjust your hook size to meet the gauge.


In addition to yarn and a crochet hook, you’ll need a few other supplies before you get started on your new keychain.

  • Tape measure. A tape measure or ruler will help you take your gauge, check your finished dimensions, and make sure that your key chain is the right size.
  • Stitch markers will come in handy for marking your place as you work, especially if you’re working on a larger project.
  • Scissors to cut your yarn.
  • A tapestry needle is necessary to weave in ends and seam your finished wallet together.
