A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
This is a special pattern for me because this is the pattern I was perfecting that dreadful night when a huge flash flood hit our city, killing all our 9 chicks and thousands of people living beside the Cagayan de Oro river.
Though there was no electricity, an angel kept prodding me to go on crocheting in flickering candlelight. God really works in mysterious ways just to keep my baby dry on that night. Thank you, God.
This is the 9th pattern in my 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet series and the 4th among the circular motifs.

Special Stitch: LONG SC (lsc)
Don't be scared - the long single crochet is just an sc that is anchored one or more rows below the one you are currently working on. This is a beautiful stitch that creates solid areas in a lacy pattern such as this one.
