"While working on the ideas and designs for the “Little Women” collection, I wanted to add a kind of a wide belt that would not be too complicated to make. This is such belt. Easy and fast to make ! For this belt I used Nako’s Vals variegated yarn and a 3.00 mm hook. It takes about 50-60 gr of yarn for this belt. Used terms for belt (American terminology): chain (ch), half double crochet (hdc), half double crochet 2 together (hdc2tog). Used terms for ties (American terminology): chain (ch), single crochet (sc), single crochet 2 together (sc2tog), half double crochet (hdc). Finished measurements: 60 cm across (length) 8,5 cm width at the sides and 16 cm down center at the widest point. Drop me a note if you have questions with the pattern / instructions!"

Sewing the Ties On

When done, leave a really long tail which you'll use to sew the tie onto the belt foundation. The ties in this tutorial are 105 cm long.

Sewing: with belt face up, position the end of the tie (face up) about 3 cm of tie counting from the edge of the belt. Pin it. In my pictures above I used about 6-7 cm of the tie and didn't like it, so pin first, see how you like it (depending on how long you made it) and then thread a tapestry needle and sew the tie onto the belt. Do so for the other side.
