This wrap has a vintage look it it and would be perfect for wearing with a prom dress or any dress with spaghetti straps or a halter top. I love the look and the pattern seems pretty easy. I don't know where you can find a 4 inch buckle, but you might try a goodwill store. Sometimes you can find a belt with the buckle you want for next to nothing.

You get 5 stars if you can tell me where on earth I can get the 4" buckle - many people are having this problem. I've looked all over the Internet. Please help!

I use Patons decor yarn quite often, but the one I can get is a 4 worsted weight, where can I get this is a size 5 chunky weight?

I just got this pattern, knitting it for my daughter's wedding in Feb. 2016. I also cannot find a 4 inch buckle. any ideas?

I cannot find a 4 inch slide buckle anywhere. Where did you get yours??

This is second time I've knitted this pattern. The first time the pattern size was way too small although the size was for bust size 34" to 44" so I pulled it out. Now I've knitted the larger size and I'm at the end and running out of yarn. I will not have enough to finish. Very frustrating. Pretty pattern but size and amount of yarn are wrong.

Hi kathyamarchione 9757591, We have checked with the Patons website and have verified that both the measurements and amount of yarn is correct. Hopefully this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
