A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
Although my first drafts for this series are those of teardrop earrings, they were the last to come into reality. Shaping these earrings really gave me a lot of headache.
But they turned out so beautiful. All the hard work I put into it was worth it.
Cover Hub: 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet
- 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet - A Collection of Free Crochet Motif Patterns
To avoid having duplicate content, I placed all identical information, such as MATERIALS, TOOLS, ASSEMBLY and FINISHING, into this hub. It also houses the links to all the patterns in this series.
Each pair of earrings is crocheted using three strands of polyester thread using a 1.00 mm steel hook. The first pair is crocheted using various shades of flesh, while the second used black, gray and purple.
For a complete list of materials, see the COVER HUB.
