Step 1:

Insert the keychain clip into the 8 pieces of t-shirt yarn. Place it in the middle of the yarns.

Step 2:

Take off some yarn from the rolls but do not cut it. Make the same length of the folded yarn using the rolled-out yarn. Then on the continuous end of the yarn tie it 10 times around the pieces of yarn just below the keychain clip. Start on the top and make 5 loops going down. Next, make another 5 loops until you go back to the top again. Overlap each of the loops to fully secure. Then cut with an allowance eas same length of the keychain.

Step 3:

Insert the crochet hook or knitting tool on the loops then pull the yarn from the top to the bottom.

Step 4:

Hook the clip into an object. Separate the yarns into 3 sections. Next, hold the left section with your left hand and the right section with your right hand. Cross the right section over the middle part. The right section will now be in the middle. Then cross the left section over the new middle one. Continue doing this process until you make 3/4 of the yarn.
