Hi all! we're starting a series of useful posts with one about belt.
we'll collect them under hash-tag #gz_tips
i'll tell you how i make a wide elastic belt. for that i take a wide elastic (about 2 inches width) and then crochet sort of a tube for it.
all of this is made after the main length is reached.
as i advice you to start skirts with chainless double (us) / treble (uk) crochet foundation, making the belt after that makes an even and beautiful ending and helps the thing look whole and finished. (for chainless double (us) / treble (uk) crochet foundation see the video with hash tag #gz_tips)
👉fix a new thread on the opposite side of the cast on, ch-3 and make a round of dc (us) / tr (uk), join the round with a sl st. repeat 4 times, not turning the work, that's enough to cover the width of my elastic (you may need to correct the number of rounds here according to your needs) 👉turn the work and make a round of single (us) / double (uk) crochets to get sort of a rib. 👉 turn again once more to make the inner side of the belt and make three rounds in the following way:
1 dc in dc, [skip 1 dc, (1 ch, 1dc) in next dc] (us) / 1 tr in tr, [skip 1 tr, (1 ch, 1tr) in next tr] repeat till the end what's in between [...] (uk)
2nd and 3rd rounds:
dc in dc, [skip 1 ch, (1ch, 1dc) in dc] repeat till the end what's in between [...] / 1 tr in tr, [skip 1 ch, (1 ch, 1tr) in tr] repeat till the end what's in between [...] (uk) 👉 connect the inner side to the skirt by making the 4th round, which is shown on the video 📹 👆👆👆
don't forget to leave some space for the elastic beforw you finish the whole round. join the round in a ring after inserting the elastic into the tube.
your belt is ready! 😋 ✌️🌷🌷🌷 #crochetskirt#crochetbelt#crochetersofinstagram#crochetfashion#crochetqueen#crochetpattern#teachingcrochet#usefultechnique#fiberart#doityourself#magichook#crochethook#moderncrochet#crocheteveryday #virkningärintebaraförgamlatanter #virka#tejer#crochetaddict#handcraft#crochetando#ganchillo
