The 100 Crochet Keyring Challenge for Crossroads Care

To celebrate what would have been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday at the end of April, his family have launched a charity challenge (involving the number 100) where the funds can go to a charity of choice.

Crochet Keyrings are a great for little gift for family and friends, birthdays, or just to say you care about them… or even a little treat for you! Karen from Loop the Loop has chosen Crossroads Isle of Man as her charity, and here is the challenge:

To make 100 crochet keyrings – these are fiddly and with my rather unladylike hands (in other words large plates!) I find delicate stitch work tricky.

Each keyring will be a different theme, and as they’re created, they’ll be added to Karen’s shop on If you have a particular theme that is not shown then please get in touch with your preference as I am happy to work with other ideas. Back orders are available on some of the designs but please note colours may vary.

The keyrings are £7 including the keychain, organza gift bag and postage and all the money raised from sales will go direct to Crossroads to help continue care in our community.

Demand for care support has grown immensely since Covid19 first came into our lives. Even if Covid has not actually touched families, lockdown brings new challenges for those caring for a loved one with care needs. Their normal support network suddenly falls away due to the restrictions but Crossroads continues working through and has met many new families requiring help. Your contribution will go towards improving those lives.

Karen says, “I have not worked with a lot of the designs for keyrings before so I am looking forward to that little challenge too!”.

Good luck from us Karen!
