Step 1: What You'll Need
- Key Ring
- Ruler/Tape Measure
- Perma Lok or an Awl or similar tool
Step 2: Starting Out
You'll want to use the 'box knot', like I did here, and in order to make a 2 1/2" ribbon, you'll need to start out with 15 layers.
Here is a video to better understand certain steps.
Step 3: Adding the Ring
Then continue with the box knot until you have 23 layers.
Step 4: Bending
Bend the chain in on itself making sure that the ring/clasp is on what will be the top, and, depending on which corner your thread is coming through, thread as follows.
On the end that butted up against the chain, the piece that 'points towards you' ended up at layer 6, so that's where I threaded through.
After that, you need to see where your next one is closest to. Thread through there.
Pull both ends as tight as you can, then flip.
