I saved this pattern because I thought the belt looked really cute. Now I have found the yarn I want to use, but I don't understand the 'yf' (I realise that you have explained it before, but I just don't get it). I have done yo's before, and from what I have read in the past, it can sometimes be the same, and sometimes not...?
 I tried googling and I found this http://www.keyboardbiologist.net/Techniques/YarnForwardKnit.htm - can someone please tell me if this is the right way? Somehow I think it isn't, because of the '(nb: by yf, I mean "put the yarn to the front", not "make a stitch by putting the yarn to the front then knitting".)'
I SOOO want to make this belt, so please help me.

No , I dont think that is right. To yf you put your yarn infront, thru needles, then knit your stitch. It will create a lace like hole. Hope this helps

But how do I knit the stitch when I have my yarn in front of the needles?

Ah I see... I have tried it now. I thought it was going around the left hand needle, that's why I couldn't figure it out. But then it's the same thing as a yo, right? (At least how I learned a yo).
Thank you for your help Smiley

England and America, two cultures separated by a common language... Wink (And me in Australia, looking on... Tongue)

By 'yf', I mean bring the yarn to the front of the RH needle. Like you would if you were going to purl. Depending on what the pattern does next, you would either knit the next stitch (hence putting the yarn over the needle and making a stitch), or slip the next stitch and then knit the one after, before passing the slipped stitch over. (Making a stitch and decreasing.)

The easiest way to make sure you're doing what the pattern calls for is to make sure you have the same number of stitches after you've done a row as you did before.

(It could be worse: the other day, I was trying to do a lace pattern from an english book from c1940. That used 'm1' for 'put the yarn to the front'. I went, oh, m1 means make 1 which means I knit a stitch with the yarn in front. And then I wondered why the pattern seemed to need more stitches than what were on the needle.)

Here's my version of the belt, made in a gold yarn with gold lame threads that I found at AC Moore for 5 bucks (took exactly one skein to make a belt about 33" long, plus fringe).  It is very bling-esque.  I gave it to my sister for her birthday.  Interestingly enough, I saw something almost exactly like this at J Crew for 60 bucks! Yay crafting!

"I must go down to the seas again,
to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way,
where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over."

Eoz,

thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I love this! I'm not much of a belt-wearer, but I'm totally going to make a hair band/tie kinda' thingy with this pattern. Maybe a little narrower and shorter than you would for a belt, but still with the fringy ties at the end. I can't wait!

Love this belt! Good work.
Many thanks for the pattern as well.

I have added it to the incredibly looong list of things I MUST knit.

(When in second hand stores, I usually check through those Golden Hands hardcover books for patterns or ideas - just b/c they're old dosen't mean they can't be used.)

I wonder ... if an i-cord would look OK and/or work OK - instead of a long fringe?
For some reason I have an irrational phobia about hanging strings/threads.
I have this idea they would "hang" all over the place after a while, start fraying or disintegrating almost immediately, etc. etc.

Well, I won't know until I get at it. Right?
Thanks again.
