Lariat Belt by Valerie Bracegirdle (issue 68)
Photography by Lucy Williams

This clever design can be worn as a skinny scarf, a lariat necklace, or a belt – all in one.

● Willow Knits Hand-Dyed Silk Worsted, 100% silk, 100g/207m/225yds
Shade: Petrol x 1 skein
● 4mm hook
● Yarn needle
● Lockable stitch marker
● Two beads, 1cm/½in diameter with hole large enough for two strands of yarn
● Sewing needle and thread

You can use any worsted weight yarn to achieve a similar effect.

Exact tension is not critical for this design, just aim for a finish that looks neat.

Length approx: 190cm/75in. Width approx: 5cm/2in.

Valerie describes herself as an “accidental designer” because she didn’t set out to become a designer, it just happened somewhere along the path of enjoying crochet and knitting.
Read her blog at and find her on Facebook as Agrarian Artisan.
