    I am a fan of circulation.

    Yes, you are right

    For those that are knitting needle impaired you could use one of the sock looms that are available. Sock Looms have smaller pegs and are closer together than the larger looms. This allows for smaller stitches and a tighter knit. They are smaller than the looms show earlier and could easily be taken with you if you want to knit in public. In the United States these are available in most big box craft stores.

    This is another method that might work called stick weaving.

    Just a thought but a different approach you could take to making a different style of self tie garters might be to pleat together woollen strands in a similar way to the way women pleat their hair or like Scouts pleating lanyards from leather shoe laces - it depends how big & complex you wanted to make it? I guess 5he more threads the longer it would take and the more complex it would be, but you would produce a wider garter?
