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.
