The Gimp String Lanyard also known as rexlace and scoubidou lanyard.This task can be carried out by anyone who would like to make a gimp string within 15 minutes or less.
Step 1: Step 1: Gather the Materials
Gather the tools required, which are a ruler, a scissors, a key attachment hook, and two different colors of string.
Step 2: Step 2: Cut the String
Measure 8 inches of both string 1 (green string) and string 2(yellow string) and cut the strings.
Step 3: Step 3: Create Cross Pattern
Create a cross pattern with the strings by placing string 2 in the horizontal position with string 1 on top in the vertical position. Grab the strings holding them together at the intersection.
Step 4: Step 4: Create Two Loops Around String 1
WARNING: While crossing strings be sure not to let the string twist and to keep the strings parallel with one another.
Bring the right side of string 2 and cross it over the top of string 1. Also, bring the left side of string 2 and cross it over the bottom of string 1.
Now you should have two loops of string 2 around string 1.
Step 5: Step 5: Looping String 2 Around the Loops of String 1
Bring the top of string 1 over the upper loop of string 2 and under the lower loop of string 2. Bring the bottom of string 1 over the lower loop of string 2 and under the upper loop of string 2.
Step 6: Step 6: Finishing the Basis
Remove your finger and pull the four strings to tighten the basis. Now you have a basis.
Step 7: Step 7: Creating Box-Stitched Pattern
Grab the two ends of string 1 and make a loop over the basis with each ends of the string.
Take the left side of string 2 and go over the right loop and under the left loop.
Take the right side of string 2 and go over the left loop and under the right loop.
Tighten the 4 strands of string.
Repeat step until gimp string is finished.
Step 8: Step 8: Attach Key Hook
Attach the Key Hook to add to key chain.
