Global moderator Sweets4ever is getting married in August and I was in charge of making her garter. I've never made one before, but now I think I'm hooked (oh Im so punny)!

Her accent color is this deep, rich red. I think her shoes will be red, and I figured.. sexy red garter! It's a nice pop of color for her fiance Wink







(ignore the string on the right hand side of that last one. I havent woven in the ends yet)

Its elastic so the ribbon (which is velvet!) is just decorative.

Im thinking of adding small black and crystal seed beads in the space on top of the scallops so they dangle in the center. not sure, though. That might be "too much." I have more beads left over from when I made a red/black/crystal crocheted bracelet for her. Opinions on beads or no beads? I think I love it the way it is, but I dont know!


Hope y'all like it! Cheesy

I love it!
Its so pretty and so different from the typical blue and white ones you see. I wish I had one like this when I got married last summer.

I'm undecided on the beads. They might add that little bit of sparkle that's always nice. But then again, they might annoy the heck out her when she moves around.

I was also wondering if you had a pattern. I have a friend getting married on August that I was thinking of making a garter for.

Wow, you did an awesome job! (as usual!) I love the colors. That would have been perfect for my wedding too.  Cheesy I say no beads. Just because it might feel like a bug got up the dress, then the disasterous "get the bug out" dance ensues, and she knocks the candlabra onto the minister and he falls down, rolling down the aisle, taking all the decorations with him, thus wasting a lot of smooching time with Mr. Sweets because the decorations need to be set back up while the minister is checked for a concussion. I'm just sayin'...  Cheesy

Thanks! No pattern, sorry. I cut a length of elastic that would stretch comfortably around her leg, sewed the ends together to form a ring, then single crocheted double stranded around. When I did that, I made sure there were a lot of stitches so when it stretched there wasn't too much blank space and that the design would be large enough to fit around her leg when it was stretched out. The second row is entirely quadruple crochet (or whatever stitch is tall enough to weave the ribbon through)... the third row is called Iris stitch, which is basically just 2 dc in the same stitch, chain one, 2 dc in the same stitch, skip three stitches, repeat... the fourth row is the same (double crochet in the "chain one" spaces of the previous row). The fifth row sc in chain one from precious row, chain 6, repeat all the way around. The sixth row is 8 sc around each chain. thats it! Cheesy

haha i guess that technically constitutes a pattern! I suppose I can put my post under the crochet tutorial list now Tongue Cheesy

HAH! thats why I told her no beads initially, but then I thought beads might be a cute touch.
