Crochet Keychain Mr. Potato Head

Hi, you will find here a free pattern for an awesome crochet Mr. Potato head!


My husband recently asked me if I would be able to make some crochet Mr. Potato Head keychains for his coworkers! What I question, of course I can! Well or at least I can try! So a few days later, here they are: 4 Mr. Potato Head keychains.

These crochet keychains are really easy and quick to make. You can even use scrap yarn. I also made a fifth one for my son who was really jealous and wanted one for him too.
