A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

It's been a year since I last crocheted some earrings. But while I was hopelessly lining up for voter's registration, inspiration came.

I immediately sketched simple designs on my notebook. This is one of those designs. Its funny I didn't think of this one before given its simplicity.

Though simple in construction, this pair is a classic.

Even in violet, the model still looks stunning with No. 7!

Materials:

Like most earrings in this series, No. 7 is also crocheted from three strands of polyester sewing thread featuring various shades of pink and violet.

The previous earrings in the series is crocheted using 1.00-mm steel hook, but this one uses 2.00-mm hook for a lacier effect.

Tapestry needle, long-nose pliers, and fish hooks are required as well for this earrings.

Note on Assembly and Finishing

It's more prudent to harden the motif first before attaching it to fish hooks. That way, the motif can maintain its circular shape.

It tends to elongate if attached to fish hooks before hardening it. The weight of the glue stretches it.

Yet in the end, its your decision whether you want an elongated motif.

I wish I could maintain this soft look of my earrings. But it's way too light and pliant for its intended purpose. We just can't have it all. Compromise.

      Hello Heidi! Using magazine photos for "models" is something I learned via Pinterest.

      Thank you, Alise. It really does give a infinite color combination. The good thing is that most crafters would have a lot of sewing thread to start with.

      Nice pattern. Interesting to use sewing thread. You could make some nice color combinations with that, as you did above.
