The sixth and final pattern in my Tropical Beach Mini Amigurumi Patterns series is probably the most iconic of all tropical imagery… the palm tree! After all, what says ‘the tropics’ more than the image of palm trees rustling gently in the warm ocean breeze, on a beautiful sandy beach? (Can you tell I am missing travel??) Well, this palm tree may not sway in the breeze, but it’s still pretty darned cute and it will definitely make your house feel a little more tropical! Plus, no need to water it, which is a bonus if you’re a plant killer like me.
Like my other mini dolls, this palm tree would make the perfect addition to a child’s toy playset, or to hang from a mobile in a beach-themed nursery. Or you could just make a few as fake greenery decor!

Nothing quite evokes a tropical paradise like a palm tree. Soft sand beaches, clear blue waters, and above it all the breeze rustling gently through the palm trees… Sadly this cute little palm tree isn’t quite big enough to sway in the wind, but it will definitely still bring some tropical vibes into your life!

Finish off and close up the hole. Weave in all ends.
Leaves (Make 5)
Round 1 is the base of the leaves, and Round 16 is the tip.
Using green and leaving a long end:
Round 1: Ch 6
Round 2: Join to the first Ch with a Sc to form a circle. Sc into the remaining 5 chain stitches. (6)

Finish off, close up the hole, and weave in the end from Round 16.
Stuff the leaf through the other end, using a chopstick or similar to push the stuffing through the small opening.
Flatten the opening and use the end from Round 1 to sew it shut. Do not weave in this end yet, you will use it to sew the leaves together.
Assembling the Palm Tree
Sew the five leaves together in a star formation. Use the ends from Round 1 to sew the leaves together at the corners, and then stitch across the middle a few times to close up the hole. Weave in all the ends except one, which you will use to sew the leaves to the palm tree. See Figure 1 below.
Pin the leaves to the top of the palm tree trunk and stitch in place. Finish weaving in the ends. Read on if you’d like to make your palm tree into a keychain, otherwise you’re done!
Optional: Adding a Keychain
To create a yarn loop for attaching the keychain:
Using brown or green: Ch 11, then Sc into 2nd Ch from hook and Sc into the remaining 9 stitches (10)
Cut the yarn, leaving a long end.
The keychains I purchased consist of a split ring attached to a chain, and a separate open jump ring. If you have something similar, follow my instructions for attaching an open jump ring to your palm tree.
If you have a keychain where the jump ring is already closed and can’t be easily opened, then skip to my instructions for attaching a closed jump ring to your palm tree.
If you have an OPEN jump ring on your keychain:
Join the yarn into a loop and stitch it securely to the palm tree.
To attach the keychain, insert the open jump ring through the chain of the keychain and then through the yarn loop you just made. Use pliers to close the jump ring tightly.
If you have a CLOSED jump ring on your keychain:
Do not sew the chains into a loop or stitch it to the palm tree yet. First, run the yarn through the jump ring. Then you can go ahead and sew the yarn into a loop and stitch it securely to your palm tree.
