Also about 1m of silver or gold thread for the buckle.

1. Using white 30 ch.
2. In third ch from hook make 1htr. then 1htr in each ch to end, break off white and join red yarn. ( 28 stitches not counting the two ch at the start)
3. Starting each row with 1ch and working 1dc in each stitch work 8 rows of dc. in red.
4. Do not break off yarn, but join black and work 2 rows of dc.break off black
5. Using red work 7 rows of dc.
6. To shape neck and shoulders: 1ch, dc2tog, 1dc in next 4 stitches, dc 2tog, 1dc in next 12 stitches dc 2tog, dc in next 4 stitches dc 2tog. ( 24 stitches )
7. 1ch, dc2tog, 1dc in next 3 stitches, dc 2tog, 1dc in next 10 stitches dc 2tog, dc in next 3 stitches dc 2tog.
   ( 20 stitches )

9.1ch, dc2tog, 1dc in next dc, dc 2tog, 1dc in next 6 stitches dc 2tog, dc in next dc, dc 2tog.

The work should now look like this. Hide the ends and then using white work a row of dc up one side across the top and down the other side. Work 1dc in each row. leave a long end for sewing up.


The work should naturally fold so that you can sew up the front and across the bottom.



 You can stop here or you can embroider a silver or gold buckle.


Now you can make one for everybody!
Happy Christmas and as usual let us know of any mistakes.
