Crochet Bracelet

The Purl Bee is a wonderful site full of beautiful projects and tutorials.  I have made more than one thing using patterns/tutorials from the site.  While looking for crocheted "things" I found Wren Handmade: Crocheted Bracelets . I was sold and decided to make one for my little girl.
I worked on the pattern on my lunch hour and quickly decided that since I am still a beginner crocheter and my daughter does not like jewelery, that this would not be for her.  A little too much work.  I am not one to give up easily, so I chose to go ahead and complete it.

I messed up the pattern!  I did one stitch wrong (each time it was in the pattern), plus I lost count a couple times and by the end I had to do whatever stitches worked because the ones in the row before were wrong (Oops).

I finished it yesterday and at first I was not sure how much I liked it.  Overall I was happy, it looked close to the inspiration bracelets.  By the end of the evening  I absolutely loved it!  I wore it out last night to my youngest boy's soccer game.  I wore it while I wrestled with my unhappy little girl.  I wore it all evening.  It is so comfortable and so child friendly.  I, like my daughter, don't love jewelery, but this is more than jewelery, it is a wonderful, comfortable accessory.  I will wear it again and I will try the pattern again.  Hopefully I will get it right next time!
