Santa Belt Ornament

Santa Belt Ornaments (as well as Elf Belt Ornaments) are easy crocheted ornaments to give your Christmas tree a handmade touch. This simple project takes less than an hour to make and can be great for Christmas gift giving.

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern is written with U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions, pictures, and video to help you along the way. Santa Belt Ornament is crocheted around a three inch embroidery hoop. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!

  • Using Color Red

    Use color green if making an elf ornament.

  • Unscrew the 3 inch embroidery hoop and take out the inner hoop. Put the other piece to the side.
  • Make a slipknot with a long tail.
  • Place your hook through the hoop and attach the slip knot to the hook.
  • Pull the hook to the front of the hoop.
  • Yarn over.
  • Pull the yarn through the loop to complete a slip stitch.
  • Place your hook through the hoop again.
  • Grab the yarn that's in the back of the hoop.
  • Pull the yarn to the front of the hoop.
  • Yarn over and pull the yarn through both loops on the hook.
  • Complete a single crochet.
  • Insert hook back through the hoop and continue single crocheting until you reach the end.

    When the single crochet start to bunch up, take a second to fan them out. Move the single crochets closer together if needed.

  • When you reach the end, slip stitch into the first single crochet.
  • Fasten off and weave in the ends.
  • Place the crocheted hoop into the outer circle of the embroidery hoop. Unscrew the hoop, fit the crocheted hoop into it, and then screw the hoop to tighten

    Turn the screw about three or four times.
