The Buckle Motif is a simple pattern of chains, single crochets, and the occasional slip stitch. While in the shape of a buckle, it would need significant stiffening to be able to function in that capacity. With that in mind, we recommend you use this as a decorative element, not a functional one.
Our mission is to empower knitters to be fearless with their knitting through great education, simple projects, and an amazing community.
