Another quick and easy Warm Weather Project!

Here's another great project for this hot and humid weather we've been having. A quick and easy lanyard perfect for keeping up with your keys as you enjoy the outdoors this Summer.

(I used the swivel hook)

Stitches used:

  • Single Crochet (SC)
  • Chain (Ch)

Make a slip knot and chain a number that equals the length you desire for your lanyard. I chained 80. Try it on by holding it across the back of your neck and pinching the ends together to make sure the hook/ring will fall in the right place. (Don't attach the hook yet)

1: SC in second chain from hook and in each ch across. When you get to the end, tie off, leave tails loose.

2: Slip the hook/ring onto your work. Close the lanyard by using the tails to sew the two ends together. Tie off securely, weave in ends and trim.

3: Cut a piece of yarn about 6" in length. Center the hook/ring at the opposite end of the lanyard from your seam. Pinch the lanyard together one inch above the hook/ring. Using the cut yarn and embroidery needle, sew this spot together to secure the hook/ring in place. Tie off securely, weave in ends and trim.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Peace and blessings,
