I wanted to create a watermelon keychain pattern and as I did, I realized a pizza slice, or a candy corn can also be made since it is the same shape. Just use the coordinating colors and add little slices of pepperoni if you prefer!
*3.00 mm Hook
*Size 4 yarn in red, white, green and black
*Handful of polyfill stuffing
Ball chain or keychain ring
*SL ST- slip stitch
*MC- magic circle
This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. You will not be joining them so a stitch marker is very helpful.
Starting with red yarn
Rnd 1: 6 SC in MC (6 sts)
Rnd 2: 2 SC in next st, 1 SC (9 sts)
Rnd 3: 2 SC in next st, 2 SC (12 sts)
Rnd 4: 2 SC in next st, 3 SC (15 sts)
Rnd 5: 2 SC in next st, 4 SC (18 sts)
Rnd 6: 2 SC in next, 5 SC (21 sts)
Rnd 7: 2 SC in next, 6 SC (24 sts)
Rnd 8: 2 SC in next, 7 SC (27 sts)
Changing to white yarn
Rnd 9: SC in each st around (27 sts)
Changing to green yarn
Rnd 10-11: SC in each st around (27 sts) *2 rows*
Fasten off leaving long tail to whip stitch the hole shut. Before doing so, cut a long piece of black and weave the black in and out of the watermelon to make “seeds”. Tie in the hole and stuff with a handful of stuffing. Then whip stitch your hole closed, adding more stuffing if needed to give it a plump look. Weave in ends and add keychain.
You can also make a pizza slice, a slice of pie or candy corn! Just use the coordinating colors. For the pepperoni I made a magic circle and SC 5 in it.
