A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

Circle Earring No. 6 is so simple and quick you could make lots of it in an hour. Because its so light, adding a few beads will make it move with you.

This beautiful earrings were born out of a need. I needed something simple yet elegant as a beginner project when I first volunteered to teach crochet. This earrings marks a special milestone in my crocheted life.

It's been over a year since I last added to this series of earrings. Although this motif is not as stunning as her sisters, her innocence will surely win you over.

Measurement:

Motif only: 3.5 cm

Skills Required:

- chain (ch), slip stitch (slst) and double crochet (dc) only

- working in rounds

- a little skill with the pliers and beads


This is LJ, my only "graduate" during my first free crochet workshop. Here she is showing off her first motif while it is drying.

Is this for beginners?

Will you recommend this project to a beginner?

Materials:

For most of the earrings in this series, I used 3 strands of ordinary sewing thread.

All preceding patterns used 1.00 mm hook, but I crocheted this one using a 2.00-mm hook.

Tapestry needle is required to hide the loose ends.

Long-nose pliers were also required to work with the fish hook and beads.

Note on Assembly

Since No.6 is very light, it must finished (see Cover Hub) first.

Then the fish hook and beads can be added once the motif is already hard.

      You're missing a lot! Its so fun to wear crocheted earrings, especially when they start asking "Where did you get that?"

      I don't have pierced ears, but every time I see crocheted earrings it makes me want to get them done just so I can crochet some for myself. :)

      Nice pattern!
