It’s BACK TO SCHOOL times! This is my first year when I’m not going back to school… For 16 years I’ve been studying and I must say it feels kind of weird not going back to this familiar thing called school. Instead I’m throwing myself into a new unfamiliar work environment. Scary!! Working or studying, either way we all need someone to keep us company that scary first day, like this little cute cloud key chain with a rainbow lanyard! In this blog post I'll share with you a free crochet pattern for this cute rainbow lanyard and cloud.
r - row
st - stitch
(…) - the number of stitches at the end of the round

▪ 5 / 2 colours of sport weight yarn (50g = 160m), 3.00 mm crochet hook, stuffing, safety eyes (optional), tapestry needle, scissors
- The ribbon is crocheted back and forth.
r 1 (pink): 200 ch. (200)
r 2 (pink): ch, turn, 200 sc. (200) change colour
