Crochet Pattern: Woven Belt

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
There are times when long shirts or straight dresses really beg a belt to break up the continuity and give you some waist. This belt is a perfect choice! The stitch alternates between the front and back post stitch which gives it a retro woven look. Also, the drape is just right to make it firm enough for a belt as well as allow it to double as a scarf. Be sure to give it a try. And don’t forget to tell me what you think! Woven Belt
