Do you lose your keys in your purse all the time? Or maybe you need an extra set of hands when you’re trying to carry ALL the bags in from the grocery store?

These babies are here to the rescue! Keys will be so much easier to find in that giant tote of yours. It’s not just for keys; you can use them for a clutch (tutorial on its way) or your id/badge, etc.

You can adjust the length and create lanyards as well for your badge, keys, mask and so on.


1. Macrame Cord (3mm/4mm) x3 pcs

2. D-ring / Lobster claw key chain

3. Glue (Optional)

4. Scissors

5. Clipboard

There are two knots you need to know

1. half square knot

2. Larks Head Knot

Cord Lengths:

90cm x 1 pc

210cm x 2 pcs

This will make a wristlet about 20cm macrame twisted wristlet.


Shortest cord (90cm) is the middle cord

Two longest cord (210cm) are the side cord

If you want to make a smaller or shorter wristlet, here are the formula for the 3 pieces of cord.

Shorter cord formula: Wristlet Length x 4.5

For example, you want a 25 cm wristlet, you shortest cord length will be 25cm x 4.5 = 112.5cm.

Longer cord formula: Wristlet Length x 10.5

For example, you want a 25 cm wristlet, you shortest cord length will be 25cm x 10.5 = 262.5m.

Let's make a twisted wristlet

Step 1:

Use the Larks Head Knot to attach the 90cm in the middle to the D-ring. Fold the two longer cords (210cm) to make one 165cm side and one 45 cm side.

Step 2:

Start your half square knots. Make cord 1 as a 4 shape and Cord 6 is on the top


Cord 6 has to go under cord 2, 3, 4, 5.

Step 4:

Pull cord ends and tighten.
