PUTTING IT TOGETHER:
Lay one section flat onto a table, doesn’t matter which one. The first ring made (rnd 1) is the top of the piece with the end with rows of 2 hdc as the bottom. Beg with the top of the piece (one on the table) and weave over and under the circular openings with the second piece beg with its bottom, to the end. Sew the 2 D rings to the shorter bottom end and use the longer to fasten the belt with.
This is another belt that is easy to make longer or shorter because it is based on a repeat motif.
