This was loosely based on the felted military belt from Knitting With Balls. Its nothing special, but I did learn how to hold the yarn and turn at the same time.




Basic pattern:
co 10
*k10, turn
repeat from * until your eyes bleed.
Felt more than you think necessary.

I love this idea!
I wonder how long of a circular you'd need to knit it the other way? Cheesy

I am not a fan of the eye bleeding, so much. Wink

A. I would hate to guess. But if you care to, the belt was about 50" before felting, and its some 36" now.

B. The eye bleeding is part of the deal. Sorry. I suggest you buy good sunglasses to cover it up. Really though, this isn't a long or difficult knit, just repetitive. I'm a kn00b and I did the entire job (including hand felting) in about 5 hours.

What a great idea for a belt! I like simple ones and these would be gorgeous to have in all different solid colours.
