When the instruction is inside [( )], the instructions in ( ) are worked on one stitch, then the instructions inside [ ] is repeated as required. I hope this helps. 4 years ago

Your earrings are beautiful. I tried make in the triangle ones but I cannot understand the directions. You have [ { inside } ]. What does it mean.

Yes, that's right. You brush white glue evenly on it to make it tough. Thanks for always giving me great comment, Patrice.

I have never even thought of crocheting with sewing thread, but after reading your earring hubs, I might just give it a try. I was going to ask if the thread made the earrings strong enough, but I see from your cover hub that you brush a layer of glue (?) over them.
