Kubernetes and Tanzu keychain

Kubernetes is a very popular tool in IT nowadays, but it only have a 2D icon, so I made this keychain pattern.

The Tanzu keychain is a special for my husband, who is working with it. (Expaintion copied from internet: VMware Tanzu is the suite or portfolio of products and solutions that allow its customers to Build, Run, and Manage Kubernetes controlled container-based applications.) The pattern is similar to Kubernetes one, just need bit more colour changing.

This is a pattern by LinZi.

Materials

Yarns:

  • Kubernetes keychain: Blue and White

  • Tanzu keychain: White, Blue, Teal, Dark Blue and Green

     

I used a lace yarn Scheepjes Sweet Treat (which is 25 gram - 140 m) with a 1.5 mm hook. The end product is around 4*4*0.3 cm big.

Please note that by using thicker yarn and a bigger crochet hook, your end product will be bigger than mine. You can also create a smaller product by using thinner yarn and a smaller crochet hook.

Abbreviations

Rnd = round

ch = chain

st = stitch

ss = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

dec = decrease by sc 2 together (I used invisible decrease)

inc = increase by sc 2 in one st

‘...” = the part you need to repeat

 

Pattern

I usually like to work continuously in rounds, but for this pattern, I suggest doing ss when you finish a round. Then do (ch, sc in the same st) to start a new round. Therefore you will get a better heptagon, and the colour changing will looks tidier in the Tanzu keychain.

Kubernetes

With blue yarn, make two heptagon pieces

Rnd 01: start with 7sc in magic ring (7)

Rnd 02: 7inc (14)

Rnd 03: ‘inc, sc’, repeat * 7 (21)

Rnd 04: ‘inc, 2sc’, repeat * 7 (28)

Rnd 05: ‘inc, 3sc’, repeat * 7 (35)

Rnd 06: ‘inc, 4sc’, repeat * 7 (42)

Rnd 07: ‘inc, 5sc’, repeat * 7 (49)

Rnd 08: ‘inc, 6sc’, repeat * 7 (56)

then fasten off and leaving a long tail for sew


use the while yarn to sew the Kubernetes pattern on the heptagon.

Sew on circle between Rnd 01 and Rnd 02,

then sew another circle between Rnd 04 and Rnd 05.

Sew six straight lines from Rnd 02 to Rnd 06 diagonally.

In the end, sew the two heptagon pieces back to back together.


Tanzu

Make two heptagon pieces

With white yarn

Rnd 01: start with 7sc in magic ring (7)

Rnd 02: 7inc (14)

Rnd 03: ‘inc, sc’, repeat * 7 (21)

Rnd 04: ‘inc, 2sc’, repeat * 7 (28)

Change to blue yarn

Rnd 05: ‘inc, 3sc’, repeat * 7 (35)

Change to white yarn

Rnd 06: ‘inc, 4sc’, repeat * 7 (42)

The coloured yarn used in order are: teal -> dark blue -> green -> teal -> green -> dark blue -> teal

Rnd 07: ‘sc with white yarn, sc in the same st with coloured yarn, 5sc with coloured yarn’, repeat * 7 (49)

Change to white yarn

Rnd 08: ‘inc, 6sc’, repeat * 7 (56)

then fasten off and leaving a long tail for sew

In the end, sew the two heptagon pieces back to back together.
