I was looking at prices for wedding garters online, and I was mortified: 20 dollars for a little piece of ribbon and some elastic. Seriously? Well I'm wayyy too cheap to actually pay for something like that, so I started looking on Ravelry for garter patterns (particularly for chunky legs, like mine). I found some cute ones, but most of them had picot stitches in them. For some reason I hate picot stitches. I can never do them right, and mine always look weird even when they do turn out right. For this and other reasons, I sat down and designed my own garter, and now I pass that pattern on to you, my lovely chubbettes. You can purchase it for a mere $2.00 at the link shown. That is a total bargain, considering the cost of other garters, the little time involved in making this, and the low cost of materials to do so. enjoy!
