Free crochet pattern: Boy Belt by Drew Emborsky, aka The Crochet Dude

As I was looking for the perfect fiber for this project, a little voice in my head kept saying “use leather.” While I usually listen to those voices, this time I decided to create this crocheted belt from shoestring-weight suede.
