Santa Belt Christmas Ornament -filled crocheted ornament showing the belly of the Santa having the black belt with gold buckle - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts #crochet #ornament #christmas #winter #tree #free #crochet #pattern #belt

This Santa Belt Christmas Ornament is one of the fastest ornaments I ever made. I love this new free crochet pattern I created. I got inspired by a huge felt ornament I recently saw on a Christmas tree at my hubby’s and I’s favorite restaurant.

I loved the idea and needed to make my own crochet version of this Santa Belt Christmas Ornament. All you need is 3 different yarn colors in worsted weighted yarn, some polyfill and a hook. Everything else I used is optional as you can hang your Santa Belt Christmas Ornament the way you want to.

I used 2 different yarn brands for this free crochet pattern as I ran out of the red caron simply soft yarn. So I improvised and am very happy how it turned out.

Round 9 – 10: 1 sc in the next 14 sts in black, 1 sc in sunshine, 1 sc in black in the next 3 sts, 1 sc in sunshine, 1 sc in each st in black to finish the round
