It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Starbucks is making it even sweeter with their assortment of holiday beverages! Between the hustle and bustle I love to take time each day to enjoy a cup of Starbucks coffee and do a little crocheting. Their Starbucks® Holiday Blend is my go-to flavor in the month of December. Plus their beautifully packaged items make wonderful gifts!
With a touch of crochet creativity, I have created little coffee gift packs for my kids preschool teachers. Starbucks® Hot Cocoa packets in Salted Carmel and Cinnamon Dolce (yummy!) paired perfectly with cute crochet marshmallow keychains! I packaged them all up in a coffee mug and had to include some other treats like Starbucks® VIA Instant Latte in Peppermint Mocha and White Chocolate Mocha.
The hot cocoa and via packets come in boxes that include anywhere from 5-8 pouches. This means that you can easily split up the boxes for multiple gifts without breaking the bank!
But beyond the coffee, Starbucks has so many fun holiday items that are sure to please any coffee lover! My husband is crazy about the Starbucks® Local City Collection Tumbler, and I love the Demi Mugs and adorable tree Ornaments!
Now lets crochet some cute marshmallow keychains to pair with your Starbucks Hot Cocoa packets!
Marshmallow Keychain Pattern:
– Worsted weight yarn in white and a bit of black
– Size G crochet hook
– 6mm Safety Eyes (I purchased mine HERE)
– Fabric marker in pink or red
– Key rings (I purchased mine HERE)
– Wooden craft circles or round buttons will work ok too. (I purchased mine HERE)
– Polyfil fiber stuffing
– Tapestry needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 6 SC in ring, pull tight and join to first SC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (12 SC)
Round 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, join, chain 1 (18 SC)
Round 4: in back loops only, SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (18 SC)
add in first wood round to hold shape at bottom of marshmallow
Round 5-9: now working in both loops, SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (18 SC)
Add on safety eyes and stitch on little face/smile
Round 10: in back loops only, SC Decrease in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1
add in stuffing and second wood circle before closing. The wood rounds will help the marshmallow hold the shape.
Round 11: SC decrease until close.
As you are weaving in your loose end, stitch on the key ring securely.
Color in round cheeks using fabric marker.
Starbucks really knows how to put me in the holiday spirit! This is why I have decided to collaborate with Starbucks for another year of coffee + crochet/craft posts! The crochet coffee mug coasters were a big hit last year and if you missed my other posts you can find links to them below. Thank you to Starbucks for providing product for me to review. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions about the coffee and other products are 100% my own!

These are the PERFECT accents for my hot chocolate sticks I’m putting together for Christmas gifts. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
These are super adorable, and I really love the different faces you’ve given them! They’ll make great stocking stuffers. Thanks!

These are so cute! Thank you for the pattern.
I managed to find the circles on ebay over here and bought them – so when they get here I better make some of these!
Great gift ideas! And clever cross-marketing. Thank you!

I know you posted this over a month ago, but I just noticed it and I think your crocheted marshmallows are ADORBS! I so want to make a few now 😀
Thanks for all your great patterns and happy 2016!!
At the end of each row are we joining to the first single crochet? Except for row 1 it just says “join”. I’ve tried to make this twice and both times it has come out a little wonky. Or are we joining in the chain 1? Thank you….these are adorable.
What size wooden circles are needed?
please can you explain in the video

At a family&friends weekend I was working on these to put on my mothers walker when the “little’s”(ages 2, 3,4) figured out what I was making and then I could not make them fast enough! They played hide and seek , catch,and a little keep away. At one point one of the boys “found” one and was so upset because the nose was gone, turns out it was not his!
So they are enjoyed by young and old!
