You’re basically making a rectangle, about 4” x 9.5” for the finished project.
My car’s seatbelt is just shy of 2” wide, so you may want to measure yours to be sure yours is the same or similar. We want the cover to be snug but not too tight else it puckers the seatbelt.
Materials: Cotton yarn (I used Sugar N Cream), an H hook and a yarn needle
Pattern: Foundation Row: Ch-16, hdc in second st and in each st across, ch-1 and turn (15)
Rows 2-20: hdc in blo of each st across, ch-1 and turn (15)
Check height of rectangle. Rough dimensions should be about 3 ¾” x 9” do one more row if desired- do NOT fasten off.
Starting in the corner (where you finished), sc around the rectangle edge, making sure to sc TWO in each corner to keep it square and to keep it from curling in/rounding. Join to first sc and leave a long tail – you’ll use this to whip stitch the long edges together.
Grab your yarn needle and your scissors and go to your car. Once you get your rectangle is completed, it is time to attach it to your seatbelt. Make sure you are wrapping the project around the seatbelt in the correct direction! You want the seam facing AWAY from your neck/shoulder.
Test out placement if needed.
Use your yarn needle and whip stitch long edges together – seam facing OUT. After whip stitching the length, secure the bottom end with a knot and thread the yarn back up through the seatbelt cover to hide your end. Snip your yarn and voila! Finished.
These work up so quickly that if you decide to remove it from your car – if you sell your car etc. – you can either cut it away entirely or snip carefully and move it to a different car/seatbelt. Enjoy!
