Thanks.  Cheesy

I guess I should have clarified that I didn't mean frilly wedding-day garters (although that sounds rather cute). I used to make "sock garters" that are just a piece of plain elastic with a button and buttonhole. And yes, the button is mostly for added cuteness, but who can resist that, right? I'd love to put some cherry buttons on these somewhere.

Great Job! I think your patterns very good. I would maybe do a ribbing on the top and attach it to keep them up. I have done items with elastic cord before and it's a real bummer when your elastic breaks.
I was thinking about picking up stitches from the top and knitting some ribbing instead of doing the increases, but I just wasn't in the mood for double-pointed needles. (I just find knit ribbing easier, and it seems to me like it's more stretchy than crochet ribbing.) I still might take off the last few rows and try that.

That would work! Even if you just added on a small rib at the top in knit, left the eyelet area for the ribbon and continued to tie, so it looks like the ties hold it up but they are actually aided by the rib on top. Still great job all in all.

You could also try a reverse single crochet (aka crab stitch aka shrimp stitch) along the top of them. They had that as a recommendation in the SnB knitting book so I don't see how it wouldn't help crochet. Smiley

Oh and I myself love garters I think they rock. I was just trying to offer other suggestions in case that didn't work. Smiley Seems like whenever I think I have something fixed something happens and I NEED a plan b. Smiley lol

Definitely.  Smiley

I'm liking the thought of having a bunch of different button garters and frilly garters that I can wear them with, even if I do put some ribbing at the top.

I made these just in time. It's still August, but the nights are already getting really chilly here. I'm about to fill a hot water bottle to take to bed with me. Roll Eyes

Yay! I've been looking for a pattern like this to make my own version of those mukluk slippers I've been seeing around! I'd just need to find some leather or suede to make a sole I guess. Woohoo!

This is what I'm talking about, I'm actually making myself a pair as I speak, or type rather. I can't wait to finish and post my results.
