You have a purse where you have everything inside: wallet, keys, phone, receipts, and in my case also yarn.

Way too often did I have to untangle my yarn from my keys.

Well, in Germany, I grew up with a keychain cozy and never thought about using it until I lived in the United States for years.

I finally made one for myself and I am happy about the yarn choice, the stitch, and the magnetic snaps.

The Easy Crochet Key Cozy features the Turkish Star Stitch.

It is a thick and very sturdy stitch that will protect your keys from poking thru the cozy and still damage something in your purse.

Furthermore, the magnetic snaps and the strap attached to the keychain cozy prevent the keys from sliding out accidentally.

It sure is the perfect keychain cozy to protect your valuables in your purse.

You can even attach the cozy to your pants with the key ring attached.
