A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

This pair of earrings is my personal favorite. I love how the milky white thread harmonizes with the gray thread making this earring very elegant. I can imagine wearing it with a wedding gown or I'll just wear it to one of my friend's weddings so the bride can beg me to remove it and give it to her as a wedding present. LOL!

It's also my first time to change colors for my earrings, yet this will look superb even with just one color.

I hope you feel the same way I do.

MATERIALS:

All the earrings in this series uses three strands of polyester sewing thread crocheted with #6 or 1.00mm steel hook. Since I used two colors (milky white and gray) for this pair, I needed six strands in all. But you can crochet this with just one color.

The complete list of materials can be seen on the cover hub.

These are absolutely beautiful!! I can't wait to try them. I also want to try using size 30 with one strand of sewing thread and see how that looks. Thanks!!

I've never heard of turning at the end of each row when working in rounds. It was doing my head in! So I just did it without turning.

I love the charts! It would be great if you had them for each pattern.

Beautiful work! Thanks!
