Sari Silk Lanyard Crochet Project and Notes from a DGYer! – Darn Good Yarn

April 21, 2013

Darn Good Yarner Marjolein Baart created these sleek looking crocheted lanyards (it’s a rope or cording that goes around your neck and holds a house key, ID badge, etc.), and she’s sharing her project with us! You can visit her ravelry project page to see more pictures.

Crocheted Lanyard

She used bits of sari silk yarn from her stash (this one was made from The Blender sari yarn and other scraps), so this would be an excellent stash buster project. I’ll copy over her project notes below:


To make a lanyard of 100 cm length: chain length 115 cm in sari silk. 1 sc in each ch (front loop only). Cut yarn.
Attach other yarn (either matching or contrasting) and sc all around (1-2 sc per sc, 3 sc in the corners). Cut yarn.
Weave in ends.
Attach keychain by sewing or crocheting in the other yarn.”

This is her first crochet pattern, and I think she did an excellent job! Crochet friends: Help out a fellow DGYer by making this easy project using your DGY stash, then post your feedback below. :)
