Featured on SusanD1408 Crochet Addict guest blogger week 5

Hi all hope you are doing wonderful.My week has started off well after being a guest blogger at
which was the highlight of the week. 
I am so grateful to Susan for having me as a guest at her blog.
i gave a tutorial on how to make a crocheted belt. To view the whole post please click the link below
but here is the tutorial

Materials
Ø  Left over yarn (two colors) I used black and grey
Ø  A buckle
  Ø  A needle 
  Ø  A crochet hook

NB
Make sure that the yarn is heavy and the size of hook is proportionate to the thread for the right tension. The trick is to ensure that the belt does not stretch out.

Steps
Chain eleven stitches with the first yarn. (Or depending on the size of your buckle and how wide you want your belt.)
Dc on the second chain  ,  all through there after and turn. *chain one and dc till the end and turn*
Repeat ** till the length of belt you want
Then change to the other yarn (different color) till the length of the previous color
Now you have your belt twice the length you need
Press the belt so as to ensure the two colored stripes are equal
Place the buckle in the middle of the belt and do even running stitches just below it
The do even running stitches all over the belt using the main color thread
And voila you got your amazing crocheted belt
