These Belts were designed when
I had lost a few pounds.
and I wasn't ready to go down clothes a size.
My tops and sweaters were a little baggy.
The belts were a really great solution,
because you can cinch
the waist of your top in and
look slimmer instantly.
This is a very simple pattern,
and it works up fast.
It is also a great project to take along
with you when you travel.
And You can use just about any
type of Cotton yarn.
Acrylic and Wool can be a little
too Stretchy for the belts.

Please add this Crochet pattern to Your Ravelry Favorites
Skill: Super Easy
Hook - G
Yarn - Any kind of Cotton - 1 ball - I used Sugar and Cream I had on hand.
The mount will depend on your waist measurement.
2 D- Rings - I prefer the 1 inch D- Rings
Chain ( ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
Note - ch1 at ends of rows, is a turning ch, does not count as a st.
Gauge - 4 rows = 1 inch
R : 1 - Working over the flat edge of 2 D-rings, stitch 6 sc, ch 1 turn ( 6sc)
R : 2 - 1 sc in each sc, ch1, turn ( 6sc)
R : 3 - R : 140 - Repeat R : 2 For a 30 inch waist.
4 rows = 1 inch
30 x 4=120 plus 20 more rows for over lap
If your Waist is smaller or larger -
you will need to adjust the amount of rows to fit your waist.
Cut yarn and weave in your end after R ; 140, or your last row.
The Brown Belt I only used 5 sc across,
and the Black belt is 6 sc across.
You can add fringe, beads,
buttons or even appliques.
The #1 New Years Resolution is to
Lose Weight or get healthy.
I know it is mine every year.
I have a lot of really pretty sweaters,
and do not want to buy clothes until
I have lost a little more weight.
So I made a few of these belts.
