Crochet Pattern: Interchangeable Belt

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 2nd, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
I like to have a variety of belts. If you could see my closet you’d know what I mean. Accessories are one of my favorite things. Isn’t it the same for most girls? This crochet belt pattern is unique in that you can interchange the belt depending on what you are wearing. The example in the photo was made with bulky denim-looking yarn. Thanks to a small button with a shaft on the underside of one end of the belt it can be easily attached or removed from the buckle. It is also a great scrap-saver project. Make a rainbow of belts for the spring season ahead.

Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. I love the smell of woodsmoke in the air. Pumpkins and squash in every shade are being harvested and used for decorations. Oftentimes my squash collection finds its way to my oven. Roasted squash, stir-fried pumpkin, cookies and pies all make my dinner table look absolutely mouthwatering. So, when I was thinking up a pattern for this week, this little pumpkin pin found its way off my hook. I added eyes and a smile similar to the happy veggie figurines I’ve seen in Japantown.

Now that we have some breezy warm afternoons upon us I’m sure you’ve been finding pinwheels at the local dollar shops. Kids can’t resist them. Oftentimes we see them for party decor or even replicated with fabric for quilt blocks. This week I decided to try crocheting a pinwheel and this pattern is what resulted. You can use this project to spruce up throw pillows and other home accessories. Make it out of finer yarn and it makes great appliques, pins, or hair accessories. I used two colors for this pattern but you can easily make each blade out of a different color.

While out shopping I’ve noticed that crocheted accessories are all the rage. So, this week’s crochet pattern is for a white and pink tinged carnation. There are so many uses for this project. You could make several and chain or slip stitch them together to create a sweet, spring accent scarf. You could also make two and attach hair bands for your daughter’s pigtails. Sew a piece of felt and a pin back onto the flower to wear on your jacket. Why not whip up a few to dress up some headbands. They are a perfect handmade alternative to bows for gifting too!
