Create a belt for any occasion or to complement an outfit – choose from 6 lengths.

VERY EASY – worked in single crochet stitch in cotton or metallic sport yarn, for day or evening wear, and closed with a buckle, “D” ring or hooks. Beads are optional. An illustrated Stitch Guide is included.

The narrow silver “twice around” hips or waist and narrow tan belts are both 5/8” (1.5cm) wide; the black and red belts are 1” (2.5cm) wide. The 1.5” (4cm) wide curved silver and gold belt, for hips or waist, has equally spaced decorative puff stitch knots – a perfect “go with” for your favorite black outfit.
