Happy Taco Tuesday! I’ve got a tiny taco that is easy to crochet! Plus you don’t have to weave in your ends! It measures about 4 inches wide and makes a great keychain. If you have scrap yarn lying around, it will work well for this project. This is truly a 10 minute project (AKA the 10 minute taco!)
