Corded Rib Belt
 
2 Attachment(s)
I bought this very colorful dress in bright green, neon orange and black for last year's cruise and wanted to wear it again this year. I have lost 60 lbs since then so it is sort of roomy even for a very large lady like myself. I decided a belt would be the ticket but couldn't find exactly what I wanted. I decided just to make my own so I went through this great sock book I have that has 4,5 or 6 stitch patterns. I picked out the 4 stitch corded rib and away I went. I am getting "d" rings tomorrow and will finish it up as soon as it dries blocking. The yarn is a cotton yarn in my stash that I had from making my hubby a hat in Boise State colors. I plan on picking another stitch pattern and making one in black before we leave on the cruise in less than a month.

That's a pretty stitch pattern nonny, congratulations on the beautiful new belt and your new svelt figure! :muah:

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: well not svelt, but feeling a bit better. Part of it is a medication I am on designed to increase the appetite for cancer patients. That is not what I use it for, but I have to be diligent or the weight will come back on. I want to continue going down not up!!! Thanks for the nice comment though.

That's a beautiful bright orange colour - I can imagine it will look amazing on a green dress. The pattern of the belt looks very nice - I tried to name the stitches but it is really (to me) an unique combination :cool:. Some cable and some lace stitches, I guess?

What I'm wondering: it is quite long, how are you going to wear it? Will you add a belt fastener of some sort? Or will you just tie it around your waist, maybe with a bow ;) I wonder, because I'm pondering about making a knitted belt myself and am not sure how to tackle that part... For fasteners are often made of metal and that makes it so heavy - distorts the belt a bit too as the knitting isn't that strong. Any ideas?

Nonny, I love it! The color will go well with your dress and the belt is a good soluton for adding some shape and interest. Congrats on the weight loss. That's such a good direction to be going in. Good for you.
