Beginner Keychain Wristlet Free Crochet Pattern

Looking for a project to teach a new crocheter? Or are you new to crochet and looking for an easy crochet pattern?

I got you!


The Beginner Keychain Wristlet is the perfect very first crochet project! It uses basic stitches, and is a smaller project, so you can practice learning crochet without being intimated by a larger project like a scarf or blanket.

It also only uses 16 yards of yarn, so it is a great stash busting project!


For this keychain, I used #4 worsted weight yarn. I chose Lion Brand Yarn Pima Cotton because it is a durable yarn that washes well if needed.

The colors I used in the pictures are “Dragonfly” “Spice”, and “Mineral Yellow”.


This wristlet is considered a very first crochet project level easy. You will only be doing chains and single crochets in small rows, so it is a perfect project to practice working in rows with basic stitches.

A full video tutorial is also included, so scroll down if you learn better with video.
