Ball chain or keychain ring

Stitch Abbrevations:

*SC-single crochet

*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.

Pattern:

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.
