Where's you're belly button? At a glance, it looks like you need to cut about 3-4 inches off the bottom of the ab plate. It should end an inch or so above your belly button if you want to have some mobility, and room for your waist items. Otherwise they turn into hip items.   If it's ending in the right place, probably need to lengthen the chest plates instead as right now it's in violation of:

If a Boba or Jango Fett ab plate is being used, the height of the plate must be approximately 1/2 the measurement of the width.

from the CRL's.

width looks about right.  Softgoods look pretty good :)

Wide enough to go from the bottom of your ab plate to the top of your hips.

As for knitting it... maybe... could you do like an inch or so of what you have in mind and post a pic?  If you're planning to use normal yarn, I don't think it will work, but I wove my girthbelt out of paracord.
