Cute envelope keyring
I needed a keyring for the keys to our new mailbox - so I decided to knit an envelope one. It came out nicely so I thought I'd share the design. Add a kiss on the back and it's a fun Valentine's present too.
Basic knitting and sewing skills only required.

  • How to stitch a knit or crochet keyring. Knitted Envelope Keyring   For Keys And Valentines Too! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Knit the envelope. Here's how.
    Cast on 3sts. Row 1 - K. Row 2 - P.
    Rows 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13 - incr I st each end (you'll have 15 sts in all).
    Rows 2, 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16 - P.
    Rows 17-30 - stocking stitch ie K one row, P next row.
    Rows 31, 32 - P
    Rows 33-44 - stocking stitch.
    Cast off (bind off).
    I put in those purl rows where you'd expect knit rows at rows 15 and 31 because it makes the envelope look crisper when you fold it.
