Interlocking Ring Crochet Belt

An interlocking ring crochet belt sets off any formal or casual attire. The belt consists of a series of crocheted rings with a string through them. The string allows the person wearing the belt to fasten it in a way where it’s not visible to anyone else. This belt is crocheted with three colors. For example, a crochet maker can use black, purple and pink yarn to create a detailed interlocking ring design. Regardless of the colors used, the pattern takes 14 ounces (oz) of Simple Soft yarn for main color (mc) and contrasting color (cc). The third color, which is crocheted around the ring’s edges, requires a 4-ply worsted yarn. A crochet maker can purchase one skein of yarn, although it won’t take that much. The interlocking ring crochet belt is created using a size E/4 3.50m crochet hook.
