Belt shown here with crochet chain tie closure
This chic belt was designed to be worn at the hip, but would also look stylish at the waist if that’s what you prefer. Wear it with a long tunic or pair of jeans for a casual look or even dress it up by using an ivory yarn and tie it closed with a pretty satin ribbon. I absolutely love lace, but one thing that makes this lace belt unique is the different closure options (shown in photos). The bow will give it a more feminine look, while the buttons make it casual. If you’ve never crocheted with a smaller cotton yarn or thread, this would be a good time to try! You’ll be amazed at how quickly this belt can be worked up. The Sinfonia mercerized cotton yarn has a wonderful sheen, and comes in 76 colors for you to choose from here. Even with this smaller sport weight yarn, it can be made in one evening! This is a fun project with so many options. I hope you love it as much as I do!
