By K W Warburton, The Reluctant Spoonie
I was looking for a way to use up the scrap yarn that I have collected from various crochet projects over the years. This is when I came up with this free mini spoon crochet pattern. They are easy and quick to make, but they can be a bit fiddly for the novice crocheter.
These spoons can be used as key-rings, home decor or as a comfort item when you’re attending doctor’s appointments. To make these I used a 2.5 mm hook, but you can use one of any size to match your yarn weight. I also made a hanging loop out of some leftover embroidery thread.

Spoons are the symbol of people with a chronic illness, who often refer to themselves as Spoonies. Find out the origin of the term here. Spoons are used as units of energy and each person starts the day with a set number of ‘spoons’. This method is mainly used by people who have an energy-limiting illness such as M.E or fibromyalgia.
