My best friend is getting "legally" married in October before her fiance ships out to go overseas with the US Army. (Legally, as in they will be married on paper but will not be having a big ceremony until he comes home in a year or so.) So to make her day a little more special, since there's no ceremony, I want to send her a little wedding package with the traditional "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue".

I would love to make her a wedding garter, and I know there are some beautiful crocheted ones done in bedspread weight cotton, but for the life of me I can't find any patterns. I've found pre-made garters on Etsy, but I think it would mean more if I actually made it for her. Any ideas on where to find a basic garter pattern?

All found via Ravelry (which is a terrific place to find patterns for just about anything).
