A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
This is the second piece for for 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet series.
For my husband, this is his favorite because it reminds him of lace-trimmed panties! Such a naughty mind! But it does remind me of such things, too.
This pattern's highlight is the use of puffs and a lace edging to create texture. The puffs are not that visible though. It must be because this is crocheted quite loosely and then it's brushed with glue making it more flat. The color must be a factor, too. If it were light-toned, the puffs would be more visible.
