Men’s Tool Belt Free Crochet Pattern

 

There are not very many crochet patterns for men out there.  I recently designed an apron for men and it sparked an idea for this men’s tool belt design.  This is a great pattern for him to get organized when he works on a project.  He can put certain tools in the pockets that will be needed for his upcoming project.  You can even customize this crochet pattern for women too! 

 

 

You can find a premium copy of the Men’s Tool Belt at my Ravelry Store or LoveCrafts or my Etsy Shop that contain Picture Tutorials and Step-by-Step instructions.

****************************************************

I used Caron One Pound 16 oz/812 yd (1454 g/742 m)

Materials:

US Hook J/ 6 mm
500-600  yds of #4 Worsted Weight Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry Needle
Stitch Marker

Gauge:
 US Hook J/6 mm
 12 hbdc x 8 rows = 4”

Gauge Swatch
R1:  ch 14, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hbdc in each st across.  turn (12 st)
R2:  ch 2, hbdc in each rem st across.  (12 st)
R3-R8:  Repeat R2

Abbreviations/Stitches Used:
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
fdc = foundation double crochet
rep = repeat
rem = remaining
SM = stitch marker

Special Stitches:
Herringbone Double Crochet:
1. yarn over, insert hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook)
2. pull first loop straight through the second (similar to a slip stitch)
3. yarn over, pull through 1 loop again. (2 loops on hook)
4.  yarn over and pull through both loops.

Notes:
* I used 2 strands of yarn held together to create a thicker tool belt.  
* the stitch count is a multiple of 6 if you want to customize the size of your tool belt.
* there are 2 options to choose from in creating the waist ties.
* ch 1 does not count as a st.
* ch 3 counts as the 1st dc.
* alt ch 2 counts as the 1st dc.
* be sure to count your stitches once and awhile.

****************************************************

Customizing:

The tool belt can be crocheted for anyone.  Below you will find the gauge broken down into inches for that perfect fit.

Step 1:
Measure the front side of the waist from 1 hip to the other.  This will be your main tool belt piece.

Step 2:
Using your measurements from Step 1, divide the amount of stitches needed in half, this will give you your waist tie measurements.

**If you would like to make the waist ties longer, be sure to add the amount of stitches needed before you begin crocheting the tool belt**

Step 3:
For the height of the tool belt, measure from the hips down to mid-thigh. This will decide the number of rows you add before the waist ties are added.

Step 4:
Use the gauge below to choose the number of rows needed to meet the tool belt height.

Step 5:
Choose which option of the tool belt you would like to make and move on to the pattern below.  Again, Option 1 adds waist ties right to the tool belt and Option 2 allows you to make them separately.

Gauge:
3 st x 2 rows = 1”
6 st x 4 rows = 2”
9 st x 6 rows = 3”
12 st x 8 rows = 4 “
