Start making holes in the second stripe from the second hole. Knit in the same way, as the first stripe.
Put 2 stripes together, one upon another. The upper should be the stripe with smaller quantity of holes. Draw the end of lower stripe in the first hole of the upper stripe. It will be the beginning of your belt. You'll get one binding. Consequently, the upper stripe is always inserted in the next hole of the lower stripe. Make each hole this way.
Sew lower and upper stripes together on the ends of your belt. Sew the button from one side and make a buttonhole from another side (make with chain sts).
