A macramé keyring
How to do it
Cut 4 x 140 cm pieces of cotton twine. Double over and push the loop through a keyring from the front as shown in the photo. Push the cord ends through the loop and pull. Repeat this procedure with all four pieces of cotton twine.
Braid loop knots (consists of making two knots; i.e. two windings) from the centre and out and braid alternating from the left and the right. The knots are braided opposite each other. Braid a loop knot with the cords to the left of the centre as shown in the photo.
Follow the same procedure, braiding a loop knot with the cords to the right from the centre.
Divide the cords on each side. Braid the two middle cords together with a loop knot.
Braid with the outer cord on the right around the next three cords from the right towards the centre.
Repeat this procedure on the left.
Braid the two cords in the middle together (loop knot).
Arrange the cords (4 on each side). Braid once again the outer cord on the left around the next three cords towards the centre.
Repeat this procedure on the right.
Follow this procedure until you have braided 12 rows.
Finish the braiding by placing the cord on the far right towards the centre. Braid as before but now gradually over all the cords in the centre. Braid around one cord first, then around two cords (as shown in the photo) and finally braid around three cords so that all four cords end up in the centre. Repeat from the left.
Gather the cords and braid four times around all the cords with one of the cords as shown in the photo.
Tighten the cord and tie a knot so that the braiding doesn't come undone. Trim the tassels.
