About a year ago, my friend was wearing this leather belt looking object with a ring attached around his hip and I thought it was legitimately the coolest thing I had ever seen someone wear. He noticed my fascination and as a good friend, he let me have it! I haven’t taken it off since and has become a real staple to my look. So that’s where this idea came from – if you ask me, it looks pretty punk! I love that crochet can fall under so many genres but my favorite one that it falls under is Yarn Punk.
This pattern is such a great accessory for your wardrobe in my humble opinion. It works up really quickly and the Swivel Hooks (the part that’s attached to the pants) and amount of yarn is so inexpensive. And guess who has all of these things? JOANN of course! It’s even better going in with your coupons. Using just one skein of Lion Brand Color Made Easy would probably yield… maybe 6 or 8 of these? I may be optimistic, but it’s really not that many stitches! 172 stitches and 86 chains to be exact 😉
Down below, you will be able to find the free pattern and tutorial on how to create your own suspenders! They are both made separately, so if single suspender is your look, then just make one of them! You can also play around with which belt loop you connect it to. You can find the materials all at JOANN!
