Crochet Keychain Wristlet; Free Pattern

Super Cute and Easy Crochet Keychain Wristlet

I thought this easy crochet keychain wristlet went really well with the crochet beach bag (check out that free pattern).

This wristlet is big enough to hold your cell phone and some cash. It has a handy keychain that can be attached to the beach bag and/or keys.

You will need to know how to:

  • Chain (ch) – insert hook, yarn over (yo), pull through.
  • Half double crochet (hdc) – yo, insert hook, yo, pull through stitch, yo, pull through all three loops on hook.
  • Slip stitch (sl st) – insert hook, yarn over (yo), pull through stitch, pull through the loop on hook.


I linked all of these materials to Amazon, it is always nice to keep these on hand.

Make a slipknot then chain 21.


Hdc in the 1st chain from the hook and in each chain across, then make 19 chain stitches. (not counting chain on hook and slipknot) in the last chain add two hdc (increase). Continuing around hdc 20 adding 2 hdc in the last chain, sl st.

Continuous Rounds 1 – 9

**Hdc under the back loops (2&3) to create the ribbed look until we get to the flap.

Hdc in the next stitch until end of the round, you will end with 43 stitches without joining continue for 8 more rounds. Place a stitch marker in the first stitch of your round to track your rounds.

Now you are working in the back (wrong side) of your work so your stitches will need to go under the front loops.
