How to Crochet the Keychain Wristlet
Wondering how do you crochet a keychain wristlet? It’s easy! For the Luna Keychain Wristlet, we’ll crochet a strip using the linked double crochet, then fold it over and join the keychain. Ringing in at less than 15 yards and only about 15 minutes to make, this free crochet keychain pattern is an excellent stashbuster. If you have worsted weight cotton yarn leftover from a larger project like the Ripple Dish Towel or the Wagon Wheel Potholder, you’ve come to the right place!
The Luna Keychain Wristlet pattern is crocheted with two strands of worsted weight cotton yarn, so it works up extra fast. I used Dishie from WeCrochet, which is one of my favorite worsted weight cotton yarns. It’s less splitty than other cotton yarns and holds up well over time. I used Verdigris, Azure, and Mulberry for this project. If you don’t have Dishie on hand, you can sub out another worsted weight cotton yarn, like Lily Sugar n Cream or Premiere Home Cotton.
I chose a J 6.0 mm hook to keep the stitches tight. Y’all know I love my gorgeous Furls Fiberarts hooks, and I went with a peach Odyssey for the Luna Keychain.
You’ll also need some sort of keyring or lobster clasp so you can attach your keys or wallet to the crochet keychain. I made two versions, one with a 1.2 inch flat keyring, and one with a swivel lobster clasp that had a 1-inch D ring. I got it all from Amazon.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
These are the most common questions about crochet keychains.
What yarn is best for keychains?
I love cotton yarn because it’s durable and has nice stitch definition. Two strands of worsted weight yarn are held double for the Luna Keychain Wristlet pattern, but you could also use a bulky or super bulky yarn. The yarn weight you choose for your crochet keychain will totally depend on what pattern you decide to follow.
How long does it take to crochet a keychain?
It depends on the keychain of course, but you can finish up a Luna Keychain Wristlet in about 15 minutes. Pretty sweet, right?!
