Palm Tree Key Chain – Free Pattern
My youngest daughter asked me if I could make her a palm tree she could hang from her backpack, so of course I jumped right on it! I sat down with my Furls hook and yarn and started whipping one up. I honestly wasn’t thinking too much about it. The Palm Tree Key Chain ended up being so quick and easy I knew I had to share!

No Sew Amigurumi
One of things that I love most about the Palm Tree Key Chain is that there is no sewing on parts!! I don’t know about you, but for me sewing the pieces together on amigurumi is right there in the same category as sewing in ends!
I was able to design this palm tree with minimal ends to weave in and making the leaves with a continuous round. For me this makes it so much more exciting than sewing each leaf on individually.
The Tester Pictures
My testers for the palm tree were so quick and did an amazing job! They even had some fun with colour!
Palm Tree Key Chain Pattern

- Key ring or chain. I use these *chains.

- The placement of leaves is really up to you, there is no specific place that the leaves need to be! Use your creativity to guide where they go. The number of leaves is also variable and can be determined based on the look you like.
- Use your fingers to bend/form the leaves to the curve or directions you’d like.
With Brown or colour for trunk
Rnd 1: mc, 6 sc in circle, join with sl-st to first sc, ch1 ( 6sc).
Rnd 2-10: scblo in each st around, join with sl-st to the first sc, ch1 (6sc).
Stuff with polyfill or yarn scraps as you go to make stuffing easier.
After rnd 10, tie off the brown and stuff the tail into the trunk.
With Green for leaves
Join green yarn to the same place you tied off brown, ch1.
ch 10, starting in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc, 2 hdc, 3 dc, 2 hdc, 1sc, sl-st to next stitch on the trunk, repeat for as many leaves as you wish around the trunk. I did 6 leaves around.
Closing the top
From the same place you finished your last leaf, ch1 and sl-st across the top to the opposite side to join. Continue to sl-st across the top to close, 3 or 4 sl-sts should close it.
From where you completed the sl-sts to close, continue the steps to make the leaves as many times as you wish to cover the sl-sts and complete the look of the tree. I did 3 more leaves across the top. Tie off.
Once complete, attach your key ring. The style I have is easy to just push through under stitches. Some styles may require sewing in place. If you need to sew in place use the tail from the last leaf before weaving in ends.
Weave in remaining ends, and you’re done!
There you have it! Your very own Palm Tree Key Chain!
