Super Simple Crochet Belts - Free Belt Crochet Pattern

Super Simple Crochet Belts Crochet Pattern

These Belts were designed when I had lost a few pounds,
 and I wasn't ready to go down a size just yet.
My tops and sweaters were a little baggy,
and the belts were a really great solution.
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

Crochet Hook - G/ 4.00 MMor H/ 5.00 MM - Either one will work just fine.
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 3/4 or 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.

Gauge4 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 + 20 more rows for over lap = 140 rows

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.
