Sloth of Goonies keychain ***free crochet pattern***

This has been a pretty rough year with Lupus but I am so excited to announce that we have plans to visit Astoria, Oregon this summer for Goonies Days! (June 7-10, 2019)

Goonies is one of our family all time favorite movies...maybe your family favorite too?

I wanted to make a little something to commemorate this awesome trip and I settled on a keychain of Sloth ♡

I felted his mouth but you could easily embroider as well.

All terms American.   If pattern reads "sc, sc2tog, 2sc" it would be read as, " single crochet, single crochet 2 stitches together, 2 single crochet in the next stitch", directions are to be repeated to end of row/round unless otherwise noted.  As with any pattern, be sure to read through once before beginning, and don't forget to mark your rounds! (I use a bit of contrasting yarn) This is an original design by me, Anna Wilson 2019.

You may do whatever you like with your completed Sloth keyring, you can attach to a zipper, befriend a group of Goonies,  or even give them as a gift!  I only ask that you please not claim this pattern as your own, I worked hard to design my Sloth  Keychain :)
