Simple Crochet Buckle


This pattern is an original pattern that can be used as a buckle for a crochet belt, as a loop to secure scarves, as a napkin ring or even as a hair accessory. It’s an easy item to make and will come in very handy for numerous things you might consider.







Step 1: Begin by making 18 chain stitches and forming them into a circle.


Step 2:  Chain 7, sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain until you reach your foundation circle.


Step 3:  Keep the single crochet strip you just made straight, and join to the other side of the chain, with single crochet stitches, working your way back up to the tip of your straight row of single crochet stitches.

                          

Step 4:  Slip stitch into opposite end of foundation circle, at the half-way point. Chain 1.


Step 5:  Single crochet in each chain around foundation circle, ending with a slip stitch to the first single crochet in the round.
Special Note:  As you work, be sure to secure the single crochet strip that is in the middle of your circle. You can do this by inserting hook through its end, before beginning a single crochet stitch in foundation circle at either end.
Step 6: Finish off. Weave in loose ends.
