Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook and in next 3 stitches, CH2, skip the next 2 stitches, and DC in remaining 3 stitches

Repeat row 2 and 3 until desired length is *reached. Do not finish off

* I like my length to fit around the head slightly loose because when you add in the contrasting stripe the headband will tighten up a bit.

CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of a DC, repeat from *to* across edge of beginning CH.

Placing right side together, working in both the Base Chain and the last rows of DC, SLST together to sew the circle togetherEvalyns Headband - KatiDCreationsTurn right side out, CH1, (SC, Picot, SC) in side of DC around. Finish off

Chevron Belt

Chevron Belt - KatiDCreationsI have recently learned how to do a Chevron Stitch!  and one of the first ideas that came to mind was to do a belt!  Now, this belt seemed to design itself.  All I thought was belt, and my very vivid mind immediately pictured a wide belt that would be worn high on the waist, it would be slightly stiff and would button close with little buttons.

I love this belt I think it looks so crisp and clean!  The buttons are great and allows you to easily wear the belt high or low on your waist, or even better… share it among girlfriends!

Chevron Belt - KatiDCreationsChevron Belt Pattern

CH 17

1. DC in 3rd CH from hook (skipped CH’s and first DC count as dc2tog), DC in next 5 CH’s, 2DC in next stitch, CH2, 2DC in next stitch, DC in next 5, DC2tog.

2. CH2, Turn, DC2tog, DC in next 6 stitches, (DC, CH2 DC) in CH2 space, DC in next 6 stitches, DC2tog.

Repeat row 2 until desired length is reached.  (You will want the belt to overlap a bit so you can button it together).

Edging – Working with Color of Choice, determine which side you want to be right side

With right side facing, Join in on the edge of any DC and evenly SC along the edge toward the base chain.  Work 2SC in corner of base chain, 1SC in each CH across, 2SC in next corner of base chain.  Evenly work SC along other edge towards point of belt.  Work 1SC in the top of each DC, work 3SC in CH2 space, continue working 1SC in the top of each DC.  Evenly SC along original edge until you can Join with Invisible Join – Tutorial found HERE

Attaching Buttons – I highly suggest taking your belt with you when you pick out your buttons to make sure they fit through the CH2 spaces!

Materials:
Buttons of choice
Matching sewing thread
Sewing needle

I have 4 buttons that are stitched to the CH2 on the right side of the belt that is worn closest to the body.  I have 1 small black flat button that is stitched to the wrong side of the point of the belt.  This single black button helps the point to lay flat regardless of if there is a button at the point.  Making it possible for larger and smaller framed ladies to wear this adorable belt.

Circle Belt

After making my Circle Foot Jewelry, I had lots of those circles left so I decided I needed to try making a belt!  I loved this idea from the beginning and honestly went out to grab another bag of those circles just to make sure I had plenty!

This is a really fun pattern and can be worked up really quickly!  and can easily be adjusted to fit larger sizes by simply adding more rings.  Feel free to get creative with the different sized rings!!

While working with above listed thread and hook size, I followed the tutorial from Cre8tions Crochet for crocheting the rings and for joining.  Tutorial can be found HERE

*Note* I crocheted my two pink circles together – crochet the first circle all the way around, join with a SLST in first SC, place second ring againts the back of the first ring and then joined with a SLST into the next ring, CH1 and SC around that ring. Finish off and Join in the first SC in of second ring.

Tie – String Beads onto thread and work them into the CH as you desire.  CH until desired length is reached, SC into a SC on the last ring, SC into next 2 stitches, and CH until desired length is reached and Finish Off.  If you like you can string beads on contrasting color, join in the second SC and CH until desired length is reached. Finish Off
