Cintura Con Fiorellini



Belt with little flowers, yay! This is a new free pattern from Mani Di Fata. This is the first time I crocheted a belt, and I really like it!



The flowers in the pattern are small, but I made mine even smaller. Also, I love the way the twisted cords turned out =)



Pattern: Cintura Con Fiorellini
Materials: Cannon threads, 1 ball for the belt; small amounts of assorted colors (I used 7 other shades) for the flowers and cords
Hook: size 2 / 1.75mm steel

  1. Great belt, Mimi! I love it! You do such good work with thread. I am a sissy to try new things. (I am getting brave, though and ordered that shrug booklet!) ;p

    I've been having one heck of a time with thread and quite honestly, crocheting in general :(

    I wasn't a fan of yellow until I saw your belt. Like the cellphone purses, this belt would look good with jeans! Great job =)

  10. Thanks for the compliments Lucy, Vik, Raquel and Sis, :D
    Now I've made something I can actually wear! But you know me, sis, I hardly wear jeans as it doesnt suit me :( Maybe I'm just old fashioned :p
    On the other hand, I love Mani di Fata designs and those are really very trendy ;)
