    How to tie traditional garter ties.

    So, this first video will show the simplest way to tie traditional garter ties.
    Like neckties, there are many ways to do it and I will update soon with videos of a few more ways.

    The simple overhand.

    One can also tuck the ends under the original wrap. A suggestion from Matt that I've adopted.

    Sorry about the delay, folk. I kept forgetting to charge my camera.


    Here are two more methods of tying your knitted garter ties:


    The Undertuck and the Overtuck. (At least, the elders in my life told me that's what they're called.)





    P.S. Like I said, please forgive Betsy's noisemaking. When she gets hungry it's sudden and loud.
