D.I.Y. Project. Make this crochet belt



Accessories really can make or break an outfit. With summer coming up, I had this
plain tank that I wanted to dress up, so I made this belt. Here's how
you can make one too.

Project time: be patient, this took me about 4-5 hours
Skill level: EASY BREEZY. A beginner can do this

This belt is very simple, and made entirely using a Single Crochet [SC]
stitch. Of course, if you prefer, you can realy use any stitch. Click
on any of the pictures to enlarge and see more details.

What you will need: A belt slide, Omega Nylon Thread (Omega nylon thread is
not easy to find. Neither Michaels or Joann Fabric carrys it. Beverly
Craft store and other retailers will charge around $7 for each spool. I
got mine for $3.23 at Walmart) and a size G crochet hook.
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
Begin with a loop and wrap your thread around the backside of the belt
slide. Single crochet a row of 10 around the mid section of the slide.
turn the slide around and continue to Single Crochet [SC] rows of 10 until
you reach the length you need. Personally, I'd like to say I
still have that 24" waist, but that went away along with my high school
days, I'll just keep my belt size to myself for now. You thin gals...
you'll be able to finish this much quicker than I did. You should see
your belt start to take form and look like the image shown below

Once you reach the necessary length for the belt, this next part is totaly
optional, but it does help. Start about 2 or 3 inches in from the belt
slide and begin to Single Crochet [SC] 2. Continue to [SC] 10 rows,
and then connect to the bottom portion with a Slip Stich [SS]. Fasten
off , and you're done.
