Steak Keychain

*Requires a Club Crochet account (Don’t worry it’s free)

My girlfriend and I recently gave up red meat ever since watching Okja on Netflix, but I’m not gonna lie, I’m having a hard time with it. So to fill in that beef sized hole in my heart I made this little steak keychain!

• The Yarn (Worsted Weight)
– Red (Meat color)
– White (Fat color)
• Size G6/4.00mm Hook
• Plastic Saftey Bead Eyes
• Needle

The Stitches:
– Ch : Chain stitch
– St : Stitch
– : Slip Stitch
– Sc : Single Crochet
– Hdc : Half-Double Crochet – Inc : Increase

Color Changes:
This pattern requires a few color changes. Be sure to check the note at the end of each Rnd before you make the round to know when to change colors. Carry colors required for each round along with you before you need to do a color change.

For color changes with Color/Color (ex: 1 Red/Blue), make the first pull through with the first color (Red), and next with the second color (Blue)
