Last week I promised to write up the pattern for last week’s jeweled anklet.  So, of course I made another anklet, but instead of writing down what I was crocheting, I just figured I’d remember what I was doing.  Argh!  Why do I do these things???  Anyway here is my new anklet.  What do you think?

So, dear friends, I am going back, starting over and forcing myself to make a new anklet, just so I can deliver on my promise.  I hope there are a few people out there who will make one for themselves!

crochet hook 1.65mm

beads

ribbon clasp

Happy Crocheting!
