Milward's steel crochet hook No. 2 or 3.

Belt is worked lengthwise, then doubled and tacked together.

With 1 strand each of Lt. Red, Hunter's Green and Ecru, make a chain twice the desired length of belt. Turn, and work d c in 4th ch from hook and d c in each ch across. Break off. Double the belt so that top edges of d c's are adjacent to one another. With needle and double thread of Dk. Brown, join the 2 edges by making 2 over-and-over stitches, from both edges, after every 6th d c, passing the thread on wrong side of work from time to time, instead of breaking it.

Cord. With 2 strands of Dk. Brown, make a chain about 15 inches long, turn and make a sl st in each ch across. Break off.

Tassels. Cut a cardboard 3 inches wide and 6 inches long. Cut a piece of Dk. Brown thread 12 inches long, and place it across the length of cardboard. Then wind 1 strand of each color around the width of cardboard about 12 times. Break off. Pick up both ends of the 12-inch long Dk. Brown thread, and tie securely. Slip tassel off cardboard and wind single strand of Dk. Brown several times around near top, and tie securely. Break off. Trim ends evenly. Lace cord through end loops of belt and sew a tassel to each end.
