Custom Clustered Belt

This is a free crochet pattern for a very simple custom clustered belt, which you can make any length that you want. Due to the simplicity of the pattern, you can use just about any type of yarn or crochet thread.

It works up quite fast if you use a worsted weight yarn, however, if you use crochet thread or something similar then it will naturally take longer. Using crochet thread is well worth it though because it allows you to crochet a nice belt that is not only stylish, but strong and durable as well.

Another benefit of using crochet thread is that you can easily make it several widths simply by doing more repeats of rows 2 to 5.

The pattern will flare out a bit when you do the row of cluster stitches, but the row of single crochet stitches helps to pull the clusters back together and thus eliminates the flare. Once you weave the strings in it creates a nice texture across the belt.

The above pictures are shown with a belt where I used Size 3 Crochet Thread. Here is a picture of the belt I made with Red Heart Comfort yarn. It measures approximately 2 inches wide.
