Feeling non-traditional this Christmas? This Squid Game crochet pattern may be just the ticket.
Have you watched Squid Game? I watched it back in October after the internet exploded and I started seeing it everywhere. I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I watch a lot of horror movies/shows so the premise of the show wasn’t new to me. I will say that I enjoyed it but it didn’t live up to all the hype (unpopular opinion maybe?).
This pink soldier ornament is quick and easy to make and would also make a fun keychain.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 2″ x 2″ (5cm x 5cm) when using the materials listed.
Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.
