  • Fast, easy tie belt.
  • How to crochet a simple love knot (Lover’s Knot, Knot stitch, Solomon’s Knot) variation.

More details below.


This quick crochet belt pattern for the hippie in (most) all of us uses a beefier Love Knot variation that I developed (although surely someone else has before me). Crocheting these “Buffalo Knots” with two strands of medium weight cotton yarn held together gives them even more heft than Love Knots usually have.

Whether or not you already know how to make Love Knots (a.k.a. Lover’s Knot, Solomon’s Knot, Knot Stitch), this Buffalo version is a pleasure to make, and a handy addition to a crocheter’s toolbox.

Skill Level

Easy Intermediate. Some crocheters consider the Love Knot to be an Intermediate-level stitch because of the hand-eye coordination needed to make each stitch evenly. Please don’t be intimidated by this. It’s a fun stitch to know! Just resist the temptation to expect perfect Buffalo Knots for this folksy boho belt and you’ll be fine.

Have a look at the Love Knot Adventures Class Resource page, and my other love knot patterns.

This is a very simple tie belt pattern. You work one row and you’re done: no foundation chain needed. Avoid weaving in the yarn ends by adding wood beads to the ends! It’s easy to customize the length of your belt.

I’ve written the pattern with no stitch abbreviations for practicing pattern readers. UK and Australian equivalents are included with American terms.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

Finished Dimensions

Belt shown is 43” {109 cm} long worn doubled around a standard size Small waist. Length of Buffalo Knot Belt is a helpful guideline only. Add about 5” {12 cm} more for each larger size if you’re not trying it on as you go.


Yarn: Choose a yarn that’s not too slippery or silky so that the Buffalo Knots don’t loosen with time.
Optional: Medium to Large wood beads, 0.5”-1.25” {1.5mm-3.25mm}, about ten.
