Haute Hippie Belt
Designer: Beth Nielsen
Finished Size: Directions are given for size S/M. Changes for L/XL are in parentheses. Belt measures 2½” wide × 36 (41)” long (6.5 × 91.5  cm). Sample made in size S/M.
Yarn: DK weight (#3 Light). Shown here: Hemp for Knitting allhemp6Lux (100% hemp; 143 yd [130 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #60 olive, 3 (4) skeins. Yarn distributed by Lanaknits Designs.
Hooks: Sizes G/6 (4 mm) and E/4 (3.5 mm). Adjust hook sizes if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
Notions: Yarn needle; large belt buckle (at least 2″ [5 cm]). It’s helpful to have the kind where the bar is at one end instead of in the middle of the buckle.
Gauge: With smaller hook, 8 sts = 2″ (5 cm). Precise gauge is not critical to this project.
