I think I may have posted this to show someone looking for a garter in another post, but never here.  I made this earlier this year for a co-worker who got married early summer.  It is made from ecru size 20 crochet thread, and edged with small glass beads.  I've actually made two of these, for two different brides.  They chose the same pattern - an old McCalls one I found on-line.

Wow.  That's excellent.  It looks like it would be a pretty headband too.  I like headbands, call me crazy!

Here's the link to the original pattern - you're right, it would make a nice choker - perhaps with a bronzy embroidary thread, leather cord and amber beads?

I have 2 questions: Did you find that the recommended 20 inches was a good length?  Is it worked in a circle or as one long strip that ties together with the ribbon?

Sorry, haven't been on here in a couple of months.  It is made in one long strip and ties in a circle with the ribbon.  I actually measured the thighs of the brides and added an estimated number of inches for the ruffliness.
