The Best Yarns For This Project
This super simple project is a great way to experiment with different stitches or techniques. The pattern provides the basic building blocks to create your very own keychain or lanyard, making it the perfect project to experiment with. Feeling adventurous? Add your own personal touch to the design!
SC: Single Crochet
SLST: Slip Stitch
To begin: 5 sc onto keychain hardware (if using different weight yarn sc ¾” onto keychain hardware)
Row 1: Ch1 turn. Sc into each st below.
Repeat Row 1 until the keychain reaches desired length. Depending on your yarn, a small wristlet can be made out of 20 rows, or a long lanyard can be made by 40+ rows!
