It took me about two weeks of pulling out my hair before I finally figured out the pattern, but once I did it whipped up in about four hours!
I think it turned out beautiful! It's made by crocheting two types of yarn together. What you can't see is the thin silver yarn. It shimmers in the sun! (pattern source) And, mine looks nothing like the one they show! HA! Guess, I changed it a bit by accident! That's what a beginner crocheter does!
