Bureau of Balance bracer free pattern

Quick post

A fellow crafter and MBMBaM fan over on facebook was looking for a crochet pattern for the

Bureau of Balance bracer. We found a pattern for a knitted version on Ravelery but there didn't seem to be a crochet version out there.

I had a spare afternoon so I made one up.



I thought I'd post up the pattern so that any other MBMBaMinos and Adventure zone fan can make one if they want.
