This wrap-around, obi-style belt is slimming and very, very stylish. Worked from short end to short end, just stop knitting once you reach the perfect fit.

Design notes: Belt is worked from tie to tie. Cast on is provisional so if the belt is too short, the length can be easily modified at both sides to retain symmetry.

Pattern is for waist sizes S/M (L/XL, 2X, 3X) = 30 (36, 42, 46)” The pattern calls for Tilli Tomas Rock Star, but any DK weight yarn can be substituted.

This is part of the Single Skein Stuff pattern collection.
