Everyone needs a stylish belt in their wardrobe, right? Why not crochet one? This belt has texture and style, and looks nice with casual jeans, or can add that special something to accent a cute dress!
The stitching in this belt gives it a desirable texture and adds character. No boring ol' belt, here! I chose neutral colors, but you can certainly jazz it up with wild, vibrant colors if you wish.
This textured belt can be crocheted to any length you wish. Once you have the length that fits, switch to working the (narrower) end of the belt. The end is the part that will be threaded through the D rings to fasten. The belt end is the perfect length, so that there is no (sloppy) hanging flap. This makes for a neat and classy appearance when pairing it with a dress or long shirt.
