Introduction: Cool Keyholder

About: I'm a cool and handsome guy living in mauritius. I'm interested in everything except politics.I've got an incredible talent in Art and Design.

Do you sometimes forget your keys.If yes I'll show you how to make this cheap keyholder.This is my first instructabe,so please rank it.I'll show you how to make a cool keyholder from four piece of rope or anything you want to use.
I'm using four piece of nylon ropes which my mum uses to hang clothes.

Step 1: Gathering and Tying

Gather the four pieces of ropes.I'm using 30 cm ones.Tie them up using an elastic.

Step 2: Starting

This will be the tricky part.I you're getting confuse just look at the pics.Seperate each rope to make a cross sign.Make two loops with the two green ropes.put the blue ropes in the loops in front of them one by one.Tighten the four ropes by pulling on each rope.This procedure I'll call it spuare base.

Continue until you reach the desired length .

Step 3: Finishing the Keychain

Put a ring like in the picture.Then make a spuare base like in step 3.Tighten it and cut off the excess.

Step 4: Spiral Type

To make a spiral type one,Do the procedure of the square base.Then send the blue ropes diagonally.Send the green ropes in the blue loops one by one.This procedure will be called spiral base.

Tighten and continue until you reach the desired lengh.Put a ring as in step 3 and do a square base.Tighten and cut off the excess rope.

There it is.Your very own keychain.

    "The Lanyard", by Billy Collins The other day as I was ricocheting slowly off the pale blue walls of this room, bouncing from typewriter to piano, from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor, I found myself in the L section of the dictionary where my eyes fell upon the word lanyard. No cookie nibbled by a French novelist could send one more suddenly into the past -- a past where I sat at a workbench at a camp by a deep Adirondack lake learning how to braid thin plastic strips into a lanyard, a gift for my mother. I had never seen anyone use a lanyard or wear one, if that’s what you did with them, but that did not keep me from crossing strand over strand again and again until I had made a boxy red and white lanyard for my mother. She gave me life and milk from her breasts, and I gave her a lanyard. She nursed me in many a sickroom, lifted teaspoons of medicine to my lips, set cold face-cloths on my forehead, and then led me out into the airy light and taught me to walk and swim, and I, in turn, presented her with a lanyard. Here are thousands of meals, she said, and here is clothing and a good education. And here is your lanyard, I replied, which I made with a little help from a counselor. Here is a breathing body and a beating heart, strong legs, bones and teeth, and two clear eyes to read the world, she whispered, and here, I said, is the lanyard I made at camp. And here, I wish to say to her now, is a smaller gift--not the archaic truth that you can never repay your mother, but the rueful admission that when she took the two-tone lanyard from my hands, I was as sure as a boy could be that this useless, worthless thing I wove out of boredom would be enough to make us even.
