A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

The fifth piece for the Diamond Earrings of my 30-Minute Earrings Collection. It's crocheted in my favorite color - RED. So far, its the biggest among the diamond motifs yet its the easiest to make.

This pattern only requires elementary crochet stitches such as ch, sl st, sc, dc, etc.

      Crochet really is good for the soul. Time flies and you're lost in the moment, which is really stress-busting.

      Wow, I never thought I'd be able to do this, but you're right - it's really therapeutic. I just shut down all noisy equipment in the house (I have the radio on a lot) and went totally zen making one of these. (Granted, the first one took me a full hour haha!)

      I am sorry about that, but I mentioned the hook number in the cover hub. Hubpages is very strict about duplicate content, that's why I have to put repetitive information in the cover hub.

      Well, it ain't easy at first. But once you get the hang of it and see its therapeutic effect on your mindset, you might just get hooked for life.

      Those look amazing. Both my Grandmothers did crochet. I tried I can't do it. I so wish I could.
