WWE Belt - Free Pattern

So the Dude is completely absorbed with beastly muscle-men who feign athleticism in their undies, which should have meant that his ornament was a no-brainer. However, when it comes to World Wrestling Entertainment, I am a little thick sometimes, so the Dude gave me a pile-driver to set me on the right track.

And hello...what is this? My first FREE pattern on here...yeah-uh!

Black worsted weight yarn
Felt - you pick the color
Embroidery floss to match your felt
Black and red embroidery floss
Embroidery needle
Invisible thread for hanging
Size F crochet hook

Abbreviations: US terminology

Sl stitch and fasten off. Weave in ends.

Attach yarn in 3rd st from sl st.
Hdc,sc in next 4, 1 hdc, ch 1, turn.
sc across (6), ch 1, turn.
sc in next 2, dec, sc in next 2, ch 1 turn.

sc across (4), ch 1, turn
sc, 1 hdc dec, sc
Fasten off.
Repeat on other side.

Using felt color of your choice, lightly mark an outline for the center and straps. Before cutting out, embroider the logo onto the felt. Backstitch felt pieces to belt. For hanging, use invisible thread and attach at four equally spaced points on top of belt for balance. Or...

If you make it a wearable piece for a toy, then leave about a 3-4 inch tail on both sides of the strap for tying. Let me know if something doesn't make sense.

The legal bits...Please do not sell my pattern or items made with this pattern. Make as many as you like to give away as gifts, but please credit me as the designer. Thanks a lot!

Sidebar - Wouldn't the Yo Gabba Gabba friends be great on the WWE? I think most fans of wrestling would disagree, but I think they are overlooking a golden opportunity. Just saying.
