From Book “Accessories often make the outfit, and this sparkling belt is a case in point. Worked on a smaller than normal needle, in a checkered pattern with I-cord ties, the result is an amazing glistening soupçon of fashion.”

Note on Size: Obi wraps around waist & ties with I-cord; to adjust finished circumference, add or subtract the number of rows worked in basketweave pattern.

Size 5 US (3.75mm), Size 9 UK
Dpn’s set of 4, Size 5 US (3.75), Size 9 UK

Yarn Notes: gauge used is tighter than the suggested manufacturer’s to create a firmer fabric giving the Obi substantial body.

Yardage requirements vary by the desired size.
