Original Design by Moira Durano-Abesmo

A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

This pair of earrings is the biggest and the roundest (a bit more rounded than what I would have wanted but I still love it) among the teardrop earrings in the series.

This pattern also allows color changes because there is somewhere you can hide the loose ends.

Nevertheless, it's okay if you use just a single color to crochet this beautiful earring.

SKILLS REQUIRED:

  • sc, dc, hdc, picots
  • working in rounds
  • optional: simple color change


The following video shows how to change colors without knots and how to hide loose ends once your done.

MATERIALS:

Like every earring in this series, this one also uses three strands of polyester sewing thread. Since used two colors for these, I needed 6 strands of thread - red-orange, dark flesh and light flesh for the orange-y part and 3 milky white strands for the white part.

Anyhow, you can use opt not to change color like I did.

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • ch - chain
  • dc - double crochet
  • sc - single crochet
  • hdc - half-double crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • sk - skip
  • sp - space

CROCHET PATTERN:

//Pattern Begins//

*The crochet chart here is from my notebook. I mostly keep crochet charts along with written patterns so I can remember a pattern in a glance. I know it's not at par with my previous crochet charts (see my Crocodile Stitch hub to understand what I mean). However, after our family computer got ravaged by the flood, we were not able to have our computer installed with Photoshop, which is what I use to draw my crochet patterns before. I'll just draw better next time.

Round 1: Ch 4, 19 dc in 1st ch, sl st to top of ch-4, TURN.

Optional: Change color here. Hide loose ends under dc's.

Round 2: (Ch 3, sk 1 dc, sl st in next dc) 9x, ch1, sk 1 dc, hdc in next st, TURN.

Round 3: (Ch 5, sl st in next ch-3 sp) 4x, ch 7, sl sst in next ch-3 sp, (ch 5, sl st in next ch-3 sp) 4x, ch 2, dc in hdc-ch-1 sp, ch 1, TURN.

Round 4: (Ch 3, sc in next ch-5 sp) 3x, ch 4, sc in next ch-5 sp, ch 5, hdc in ch-7 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 sp, ch 4, sc in next ch-5 sp, (ch 3, sc in next ch-5 sp) 3x, sl st to turning ch, TURN.

Optional: Change color here. Hide loose ends under dc's of Round 5.

Round 5: Ch 6, sl to 3rd ch, (4 dc in ch-3 sp, dc in sc, ch 3, sl st to last dc) 3x, 5 dc in ch-4 sp, dc in sc, ch 3, sl st to last dc, 6 dc in ch-5 sp, dc in hdc, ch 3, sl st to last dc, 6 dc in ch-5 sp, dc in sc, ch 3, sl st to last dc, 5 dc in ch-4 sp, dc in sc, ch 3, sl st to last dc, (4 dc in ch-3 sp, dc in sc, ch 3, sl st to last dc) 2x, 4 dc in ch-3 sp, sl st to 3rd ch of ch-6.

Fasten off.

      That's good to know about Excel and chart making. I'm an Excel "dummy" so I'd definitely need help :-). I'll look you up on Pinterest.

      Yes, I am on Pinterest! I am using my real name there, Moira Durano-Abesmo.

      I love charts, too. It's great because you can immediately see the pattern instead of creating a mental image of it from a written pattern. But it's better to have both.

      Good luck on your charting. I've learned from Ravelry that most of them use MS Excel to make charts. They use a special font that contains crochet symbols.

      Love your charts, Moira. I'm starting to get into working from charts instead of (or in addition to) written instructions. They are so clear and are often much easier to understand than written instructions. Thanks for sharing a photo of your hand-written chart. I can see doing them on graph paper.

      Btw, are you on Pinterest yet? It would be a great place to share your earrings. If you need an invite, message me.
