A 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet
I once went to a craft store and found that they have DMC embroidery thread on sale. It's been there in my box for about a month when I finally had an inspiration for it. In less than 2 hours I finished crocheting, photographing and writing the pattern for these earrings!
These earrings may look like a regular circular earring, but they're actually unique in the stitch pattern that is used to crochet them. It's so unique, I don't even know what its called even though I've seen it before. LOL!
I included a photo tutorial to make it easier for others to crochet this earrings.
I hope you like them.
Unlike the other earrings in this series that uses 3 strands of polyester sewing thread, this one uses embroidery thread. Instead of using a 1.00-mm steel hook, this one is crocheted with a 1.25-mm steel hook.
Aside from that, it is similar in construction to the rest of the earring patterns included in the series.
You only need one skein for this earrings.
Use this hook to crochet the embroidery thread.

* Tatted loop is the unique stitch I am using for this earrings. I know this stitch has a more popular name, but I just can't remember so I made something up. The stitch is defined in the CROCHET PATTERN
** The stitch reverse single crochet is demonstrated in the video. Don't be scared with it, its just a single crochet worked backwards.

Round 1: Ch 2, 8sc in first ch, sl st to first ch, ch 1, TURN.
How to crochet tatted loop (tl): (Insert hook in next sc, draw a loop through, y o, draw a loop through one loop only, remove hook from two loops, insert hook in the latter loop.) The stitch with the free loop that resembles a tatting loop is the new tatted loop formed.
Note: The turning chains in Round 1 and 3 becomes a tatted loop in the succeeding round.
Round 2: Tl 7x, insert hook in last sc, ch 4, TURN.
Round 3: (Sl st in the next tl, ch 2) 8x, sl st to the 2nd ch of ch-4, ch 1, TURN.
Round 4: (Tl in each of the next 2 ch, tl in tl) 8x, tl in next ch, insert hook in next ch, ch 3, TURN.
Round 5: (Sl st in TL, ch 1) 26 x, sl st to 2nd ch of ch-3, ch 1, TURN.
Round 6: Rsc in all ch-1 sp, sl st to 1st rsc.
I expect that this is like foreign language to most of us, even when we can speak fluent crochet. That's why I took step-by-step photos of crocheting the pattern.
