Seat Belt Buckle Cover

My son constantly complains that the metal bit of the seat belt is too hot. Not surprising really since we have a habit of living in deserts. This the third time we’ve lived in a desert. So, tired of his whining I desired to do something about it. Using leftover yarn (my favorite yarn to experiment with!) I came up with a simple cover that attaches to the seat belt using a button.

It might not be the most glamorous thing out there but it’s easy and works.

Yarn: Red Heart and Sole with Aloe 213yrds/195m

Hook: D/3.25mm interchangeable hook or Tunisian crochet hook

Notations: Button

Gauge: Not essential

Finished Size: band 6”, length 3.5”

Row 1: Make a 6” sc foundation chain. (30sc),

Row 2: ch 3, counts as 1st dc, sk 1st sc then dc across. Repeat for row 3.

Row 4: ss for 1.5”(8sts) then start a Tunisian Simple Stitch (Tss), continue across until the row measures 3” across (14sts). Make your return then continue using the tss until the flap measures 3” long (or at least till it’s long enough to cover your buckle)

Finish: Bind off and weave in ends. Tunisian Crochet will curl so wet blocking is recommended! Sew on a button at the end of the band slipping it snugly between two dc.
