Inspired by a failed sock experiment, these dandy little garters sass up (and hold up) the plainest (and limpest) of socks. Not just for knee­-­highs, they can moonlight with stockings or trousers (keeping your pants leg out of your bicycle chain) or be worn as a fetching choker or wristlet (wrapped twice). With minimal yarn requirements and instant gratification, this project is both the perfect stash­buster and the perfect last­-­minute giftie. The girly set below uses Fembot leftovers for thrifty ­bling.

Make matching sock garters with the leftovers from your next gift project for a darling set. Snap the garters together from end to end and slip around a garment or gift box for extra cuteness.
