I cannot be the only person that hates for the seat belt to rub their neck, but crochet to the rescue! I made this super soft seat belt cover crochet pattern with faux fur yarn and problem solved.
This pattern is so fast to work up, it literally takes less than an hour and you can have one completely finished! Talk about a super fast crochet project!
There are a couple different ways that you can make this seat belt cover. I like for mine to be removable, so I added buttons to mine. If you don’t like the buttons or want to add them, you can fold the cover on the seat belt and stitch the sides together.
***I do want to add. For this pattern and for your safety, please use at your own risk and contact your insurance provider if you have any questions***
If anyone is wondering where the wood buttons came from, I bought them off of Etsy a few years back. I originally bought them to add to the cuffs on fingerless gloves, but had a lot left over.
I used 1.5” buttons because that’s what I had on hand, but you could definitely use smaller buttons too. Anything 1” or bigger would probably work.
Is Faux Fur Yarn Hard to Crochet With?
I will admit that it may not be the easiest yarn to crochet with, but the results are so worth it! It may take a little trial and error at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will be flying through this pattern.
Here are a few tips for when it comes to working with faux fur yarn
- Feel for your stitches. It’s not so easy to see your individual stitches when working with a faux fur yarn. So, it’s best if you feel for them instead of trying to look for them. The easiest way is to use your fingers to feel for the next stitch and where to insert your crochet hook at.
- I wouldn’t recommend using faux fur yarn for beginners. If you are newer to crochet, I wouldn’t recommend starting with faux fur yarn right away. I’d highly recommend using a smoother, worsted weight yarn like Knit Picks Brava Worsted or I Love This Yarn to begin with until you get the basics down.
- Use Stitch Markers. I’d highly recommend using stitch markers to help keep you on track and to not lose stitches! You can even use them to help keep track of your rows.
- Go Slow & Don’t get in a Hurry. This is probably the best tip of all. Take your time and learn to work with the different textures of faux fur yarn. There is a bit of a learning curve to using faux yarn, but once you get the hang of it, there will be no stopping you!
I used Fable Fur from We Crochet in the color Topo. If you don’t have any Fable Fur yarn on hand and are wondering what other yarn you could use, here are a few choices that I think would work up great for this free pattern!
- Lion Brand Go for Faux Yarn
- Lion Brand Go for Fleece Yarn
- Hobby Lobby Fur the Moment Yarn
- Red Heart Hygge Fur Yarn

I just poke the button in between the stitches when I put it on my seat belt
