My Crochet Gril Belt.

My Crochet Girl Patterns – Belt with Flower Buckle

As a kind of celebration of my early youthful first crochet years browsing McCalls crochet magazine, I made these Crochet Girl Patterns. These are all quick and easy, small crochet projects that I would have loved to make as a young girl, thus the name “Crochet Girl”. These projects are all made from DK weight acrylic yarn. You can also use sport, fingering or worsted weight yarn. And of course, these projects are all crochet for wearing – accessories and small items of clothing.

So, here’s the fourth pattern in My Crochet Girl collection.
