A knitting pattern to create an opal belt.
What you need
One skein Opal Sock Yarn (sample used is Mosaic No. 1113)
Pattern is worked with two strands of yarn held together
Knitting Needles US SIZE 5
2 – 1 1/4″ D Rings
Fray Check (optional)
Size: Approximately 40″ (Knit to desired size)
NOTE: Before Casting on, cut 10 – 14″ pieces of yarn to be used for fringe and set aside.
Cast On 10 stitches
Row 1: K2, P2 repeat till end of row.
Row 2: P2, K2repeat till end of row.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until piece measures approximately 41″ or until desired length. Bind off.
On one end, pull the belt through the 2 D rings. Fold the belt over the flat sides of the D rings and stitch.
On the other end of the belt, add the fringe. Randomly string 2-3 beads on each strand, knotting after each bead to keep them in place, making the bottom *knot a little larger than the others to keep beads from slipping off.
* At each bottom knot, I place a small drop of Fray Check to the knot to keep it from unraveling.
