Crochet Yoga-Pilates Strap
April 25, 2014
If you do yoga or pilates then you know that sometimes there is a need for a strap or belt for some of the poses or exercises. Basically this is a long piece of sturdy fabric. I have a really old purple canvas type of belt that I believe came with a yoga dvd I bought years ago. I decided it would be fun to crochet my own – this is what I came up with:
To make this strap you will need cotton yarn – 2 skeins, and a size US K crochet hook. I just used some leftover yarn from other projects so you will not need the whole 2 skeins – this is a great project to use up some yarn you have laying around. I have written up a pdf pattern that you can download with directions on how to. Click on the highlighted text to take you to the pattern. Crochet Yoga or Pilates Strap Pattern from Kimberlees Korner
I really like how this strap turned out and have used it a couple of times in the past week or two. It is super easy and fast to crochet. The cotton yarn makes this yoga strap nice and soft and washable, too. It would be a great gift for any person you know that does yoga or pilates. I have a few people in mind that I will be making some for as gifts.
Here are some of the exercises you can do with this strap:
There are lots of other exercises you can do, these are just a few to give you an idea. This strap is also a great stretching and flexibility tool which is what I was using it for in the photos as I did this after doing a cardio and ab workout. I normally do yoga or pilates without my shoes on.
I hope you enjoy the pattern. I am currently working on a couple of new knitting patterns that I will be sharing soon. What projects are you working on?
Have a great day!

Thank you Ashley. I really like this strap a lot more than my old store bought one – it is so much softer.
When I saw the title, I was like hmmmm. This is a great idea! You can have a bit of creative fun and then get your stretch on 🙂 Thanks for sharing the pattern!

Thanks Kristina and Millie. It is a quick and easy project and I like using it – much softer than my other strap.
Oh, this is a neat strap! I need to make one of these. Pinned it 🙂

Thanks for pinning, Betsy. Yes – it is one of those quick and easy projects that doesn’t require a lot of time or thinking. I was beginning to dislike my other Yoga strap and decided to make one I liked in a nice cotton yarn.
Thanks Kelley. I love doing yoga – lately I have only been doing it on Sat. but I think I am going to change my workout schedule next week and start incorporating it at least twice a week.
Ohh what a great idea! I need to get back into yoga. This is awesome!
