Free Crochet Pattern: Key Marker

By Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

Can’t remember which key is which? Crochet a few key cozies to mark your important keys. This project is super quick to crochet, using only 1 yard of yarn, any scrap of yarn will do! The marker is crocheted from the top down, seamlessly in the round like a spiral. Place it onto your key, like a miniature hat and poke the very top out of the hole so that it can be reattached to your keychain. The cover is surprising not bulky and is quite durable. It is also easy to remove and place on different keys if needed.
