I had been looking around for a knitted or crocheted simple belt to use for the Renaissance Faire to hang a suede pouch from, but I couldn’t find anything I liked enough and decided to design one of my own. It’s a very quick project and I was able to finish it in one sitting.
The beginning of this belt has a hole you can use to slip the other end through for a cute and stylish look.
rnd = round
ch = chain
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet (tutorial)
To Begin: With mocha, ch 8.
Rnd 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across; 5 dc.
Note: Mark this side as the right side.
Rnd 2: ch 3, turn. fpdc around next dc, ch 1, skip next dc, fpdc around next dc, dc in top of beginning ch.
Rnd 3: ch 3, turn. dc in ch 1 space, ch 1, dc in same space, skip next dc, dc in top of beginning ch.
Rnd 4: ch 3, turn. fpdc around next dc, ch 1, fpdc around next dc, dc in top of beginning ch.
Repeat rounds 3 & 4 until you reach desired belt length. Fasten off and work edging.
Edging: Right side facing, attach coffee with sl st to right corner of end of belt.
Rnd 1: ch 1, 2 sc in same st, sc in next dc, sc in ch 1 space, sc in next dc, sc in top of beginning ch. 5 sc.
Rnd 2-3: ch 1, turn. sc in each sc across. 5 sc.
Rnd 4: ch 1, 2 sc in same st, sc down entire length of belt, 2 sc in corner ch, sc in next 3 chs, 2 sc in beginning ch, sc down entire length of belt, 2 sc in corner sc, sc in next 3 scs, join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off.
Using tapestry needle, weave in loose ends.
