Taco Tuesday

Who doesn’t love tacos.  They can be made with just about anything – chicken, beef, heck even shrimp (you have got to check out this recipe for Shrimp tacos with strawberry mango salsa).  Since they can be eaten with your hands, they are adored by young and old alike. While tacos are yummy, I think I will skip tasting this one and just add my keys and toss it into my bag. 

This taco keychain was crocheted using bits of leftover scrap yarn. I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I am proud of myself and this project.  All of my previous crochet projects have been created following a YouTube video.  I usually watch the video a few times, then crochet along with the instructor, pausing and rewinding as needed.  BUT, I actually followed a written pattern.  The instructions do include photo instructions but I was actually able to read a crochet pattern – have no fear – I will not be trading in my knitting needles anytime soon, but a new skill is always nice to have.

I used a free pattern created by Lisa Fox (here).  Lisa also has an Etsy store where you can purchase completed crocheted tacos, but the pattern is pretty simple for a beginner to follow.

Have a great Taco Tuesday, no matter what type of taco you enjoy.
