  •   1mm grey nylon thread
  •   Oval bead frame
  •   Lobster claw
  •   Jump ring
  •   Scissors
  •   Lighter

     

  How to make a braided keychain in spring style:

  Step 1: Preparation before clover leaf pattern.

   1st, cut a 2.2m length of grey thread and seven 1.5m green thread;
   2nd, fold them in half and tie lark head knots around the bead frame;
   3rd, do forward knots around right threads with leftmost grey strand;
   4th,so the grey row is done;
   5th, do backward knots around left threads with the same grey strand (working strand);
   6th, so the second grey row is finished and the preparation is done.

  

 Step 2: Braid the first row of clover leaf.

  1st, from left to right do 4 forward knots around following 4 strands with the working strand;
  2nd, do 3 backward knots around the working strand with following 3 green strands;
  3rd, do 1 forward knot around following green thread with the working strand;
  4th, continue to do 3 backward knots around the working strand with following 3 green strands;
  5th, do last 4 forward knots around following green strands with the working strand;
  6th, the first row of clover leaf is done.

 

  Step 3: Finish the clover leaf pattern.

  1st, second row is 4 backward knots, 7 forward knots and 4 backward knots from right to left;
  2nd, third row is the repeat of the second row from left to right;
  3rd, fourth row is 1 backward knot, 3 forward knots, 1 backward knot, 5 forward knots, 1 backward knot, 3 forward knots and 1 backward knot from right to left;
  4th, fifth row is 1 forward knot, 4 backward knots, 1 forward knot, 3 backward knots, 1 forward knot, 4 backward knots, and 1 forward knot from left to right;
  5th, sixth row is 1 backward knot, 13 forward knots, and 1 backward knot from right to left;
  6th, seventh row is 2 forward knots, 11 backward knots and 2 forward knots from left to right;
  7th, eighth row is 1 backward knot, 5 forward knots, 1 backward knot, 1 forward knot, 1 backward knot, 5 forward knots and a backward knot form right to left;
  8th, ninth row, is 1 forward knot, 4 backward knots, 2 forward knots, 1 backward knot, 2 forward knots, 4 backward knots and 1 forward knot from left to right;
  9th, tenth row is 1 backward knot, 3 forward knots, 3 backward knots, 1 forward knot, 3 backward knots, 3 forward knots and 1 backward knot from right to left;
  10th, eleventh row is 6 forward knots, 2 backward knots and 7 forward knots from left to right;
  11th, twelfth row is 8 backward knots, 2 forward knots and 5 backward knots from right to left;
  12th, braid another row of grey knots.

  

  Step 4: braid tails for the keychain.

  1st, separate 16 strands into 2 groups;
  2nd, do 8-strand braiding with each group;
  3rd, make overhand knots at ends and trim off excess threads;
  4th, attach lobster claw onto the bead frame.

 

  The final look of braided keychain is like this:
 

   I have finished the braided clover leaf keychain project. If engaged in the braiding work, you will find this project is easy-to-do but time-consuming.
