A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

Almost a month after I published the second piece of the 30-Minute Earring to Crochet, here's the third installment.

The main feature of this design is its simplicity and the use of long sc's to add texture to this pattern.

Skill Level: EASY

Once you get the hang of doing long sc's, this project should be a breeze for anyone!

How to Crochet a Long Single Crochet

MATERIALS

These are the sewing threads I used for this project:

  • pink
  • white
  • gray

A complete list of materials and tools can be found on the Cover Hub.

MEASUREMENTS

Technically, this motif is almost a square. But due to the weight of the pendant, the length is longer than the width.

Length: 5.5 cm

Width: 4.5 cm

Special Stitch: LONG SINGLE CROCHET

The long single crochet is basically an sc that is anchored one or more rows below the one you are currently working on. This stitch adds a solid character to a crocheted piece.

ABBREVIATIONS

  • ch - chain
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • sk - skip
  • sp - space
  • sc - single crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • tr - treble crochet
  • lsc - long single crochet
