Amigurumi palm-sized house key chain

Hello there, let’s just say lazing around in the house might have inspired me to make this palm sized house key chain. The pattern’s a no big fuss and might only take you a day to complete this entire project.

Crochet Hook : 2.5mm
Yarn : Medium weight off-white, brown, green colored yarn. Ultimately it all depends on how you want to decorate the house.

Note:
If there’s a semi colon in between rounds it means those rounds are sc around without and increase or decrease.

Walls of the house,
Make two of each of these types of walls

For the effect of tiles, I’ve used crocodile stitch. Just follow this video, including the stitch count and you should be able to achieve it. Instead of 5 dc at each side of the scallop I’ve used only four since it’s a tiny little project.
