Crochet Teardrop Earring #2
Original Design by Moira Durano-Abesmo
A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
This pair of earrings is my personal favorite. I love how the milky white thread harmonizes with the gray thread making this earring very elegant. I can imagine wearing it with a wedding gown or I'll just wear it to one of my friend's weddings so the bride can beg me to remove it and give it to her as a wedding present. LOL!
It's also my first time to change colors for my earrings, yet this will look superb even with just one color.
I hope you feel the same way I do.

Since this pattern belongs to a series, some information are repeated. You can find the complete info on the MATERIALS, TOOLS, ASSEMBLY, and FINISHING for these earrings on this hub along with a list of all the patterns included in this series.
All the earrings in this series uses three strands of polyester sewing thread crocheted with #6 or 1.00mm steel hook. Since I used two colors (milky white and gray) for this pair, I needed six strands in all. But you can crochet this with just one color.
The complete list of materials can be seen on the cover hub.
