Description:

Follow the links above for explanation of how to work the different parts of the lace.

This garter deliberately uses few bobbins, as this makes it quick to work. You are going to have to make a very long piece, for a garter, so this matters. But it does make it a narrow garter. It uses a narrow hole for the ribbon, so the ribbon will need to be narrow too.
