Our youngest son has been playing with all of his tools recently. He used to have a tool belt (his Grandpa bought it with the tools in it), but it broke... I thought, "I could crochet him one. It wouldn't be that
hard." (Being married to a carpenter for sixteen years... :P)
Here it is on him:
You will need:
WW yarn less than a skein (I used a taupe color the label was missing so I'm not sure what it was)
Belt (Note on belt: It does stretch. If your child has a belt for their pants, you could also put that through the loop in pouch...)
Ch 24 inches (or as long as your childs' waist is). Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 2, turn. Hdc in each hdc. Fasten off.
Ch 22. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook & in each ch across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2-34: Hdc in each st across. Ch 2, turn. At end of row 34, fasten off leaving tail to sew w/, later. (Tool pouch should measure 6 inches wide. When you fold it up, the pouch should measure six inches as well, with about five rows left to sew over belt part. If it isn't quite six inches, you may want to add more rows.)
Fold pouch up. Count five rows down from top. Fold to this row. Sew sides. You will now fold this top part over the belt later and sew the to edge to the back of pouch, over the belt. (Be careful to not sew the belt in with it.)
Ch 13. Hdc in 3rd ch & in each ch across. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 2-8: Hdc in each st across. Ch 2, turn. At end of row 8 fasten off leaving a tail to sew on.
(Pocket should measure about 3wx4t)
Ch 7. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and remaining chs. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 2-8: Hdc in each st across. Ch 2, turn. At end of row 8, fasten off leaving a tail to sew on.
Ch 7. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook & in each ch across. Fasten off leaving a length to sew on.
Using photo as a guide, sew pockets on to tool pouch. Sew hammer loop to very edge of side of tool pouch. Weave in all ends.
Sew a button on to one end of belt. I should have made the belt even smaller as it stretched. Oh well I might sew another button on to the other end so it won't just hang there. This pattern hasn't been tested so if there is any problems let me know.
This is a free pattern and may not be sold. You can sell your finished tool belts if you can find a buyer. ;P
