    Belt: Cast on 8 sts. Work in Garter stitch until pieces measures inches. Bind off. About how many inches would you suggest the belt should be? I'm making this sweater right now and would appreciate any suggestions you could offer. thank you.

    Interesting pattern; with enough extra balls of yarn and reverse the shaping, I may be able to make a man-sized item for walking my dog in the cold winter weather. Thanks for posting the pattern!
