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.

I decided that I needed to create a beautiful flower to go with this hat!  This flower can either be attached directly to the hat or added to a clip and make it a clip on flower.

Attach button.

I have sewn the flower to the hat directly but I have also gotten hair clips and tied the flower to the clip so all you would have to do is remove the clip and the hat would work for a little guy.

I am so proud of myself!  This was the very first item I ever crochet using a diagram!  Which means, if you are patient and know how to do a few basic crochet stitches you too can make this!

Buttoned Cowl

I did try blocking it but the points keep curling on me. If I had ended with the row before this one, it would not have been an issue.

Oombawka Designs Crochet – Crochet Cheat Sheet is a great resource to convert the ‘foreign’ language of a diagram into crochet terms.  Inside Crochet – Seeing Stitches is also great for a bit more information in understanding why the symbols are shaped the way they are.  Of course, if you already know the crochet symbols this will be a breeze for you!

I first saw this diagram a few months back and figured there was no time like the present to give it a try.  The diagram is written with an 8 stitch repeat, so I simply crocheted my CH in multiples of 8 (+1) to get the length I wanted.

I used Loops and Thread – Impeccable with a 4.5 hook, and had a total of 17 repeats (17 x 8 + 1).
When I first made this, I simply stitched up the sides together but really did not like the way it looked.  So I ripped out the seam and sewed a button on the corner, then chained a loop and tied it off to the underside of the cowl.
