    Hey guys. As some of you may be aware, I crochet as a hobby. I finished making my boyfriend a hat last night and decided to make him a matching lanyard this morning. I liked what I did so much I made another for myself. The pattern is so easy I thought I would share since I remember a few of you asking me for patterns. I can either post pics to go along with the instructions or I may make a video if anyone is struggling with the instructions but it's not too difficult.

    So here it goes:

    How to Crochet a Lanyard

    Terms

    HDC - Half Double Crochet
    CH - Chain
    SL ST - Slip Stitch

    Materials


    Size F/3.75 Crochet Hook
    4 Ply Yarn (I used Peaches & Cream 100% Cotton)
    You can use smaller yarn for a more delicate lanyard.

    Instructions

    (These instructions will make a lanyard that will fit 2-3 V4L batts or 1 alternative batt ie the Vgo and OMG)

    Chain 3 and join (SL ST) into the beginning stitch to make a small circle

    Round 1: Crochet 8 HDC into the center of the circle

    Rounds 2-10: HDC in a continuous round (you can make this as long or short as you want to fit your batts)

    SC around once and SL ST to even off the round. You now should have a tube.
    CH until desired length and then join (SL ST) to the other side of the tube and secure the string, cut the yarn and hide the tail.

    That’s it! Hope you understood and can enjoy making your own!

    Care Instructions (when using 100% cotton - specifically Peaches & Cream)
    Wash in water that doesnt exceed 30C/86F on delicate - Do not bleach - Tumble dry low on delicate - Do not iron or press - Do not dry clean
    or just hand wash :)

    Very Very nice! I have one made by a friend..I use it when I am working outside (more secure then down the blouse)
    One question ..isn't a half double crochet just a single crochet?:)

    its gots three loops before you pull through. You wrap, go through the loop and pull through and then pull through all three. if that made sense... single crochet is just that a single :)

    looks like I may make a video sometime

    Clover those are so cute... I'd love to see a video and I may just try to work on one of these this weekend. I've got all kinds of yarn and crochet hooks at home. I actually saw some of your earlier posts and hope to maybe work on a couple of the projects on the sites you gave us if I ever catch up on other tasks..
