Original Design by Moira Durano-Abesmo

A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

If you have seen Teardrop Earrings #1, #2, #3, and #4, you'll surely notice that this one is constructed differently from them. This is the only one that adhered to my original sketches because of its simplicity.

It can't be denied that this one is very dainty, so I hope you'll like it.

SKILLS REQUIRED:

  • Dc, hdc, tr, dtr, trtr, hdtr*, htr*
  • Working in rounds

*special stitches defined in within Crochet Pattern

MATERIALS:

Every earring in this series uses three strands of polyester sewing thread crocheted together. For the first pair of earrings, I used 3 strands of pink sewing thread while the second uses a combination of purple, lavender and milky white sewing threads.

These are crocheted using a 1.00-mm hook.

Instead of using fish hooks, I attached the motifs to kidney wires. But you can use fish hooks too.

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • Y o – yarn over
  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • Hdc – half-double crochet
  • Tr – treble crochet
  • Htr* - half treble crochet
  • Dtr – double treble crochet
  • Hdtr* - half double-treble crochet
  • Sp – space
  • Sl st – slip stitch

*special stitches defined in within Crochet Pattern

      I'm not understanding the completion of round 1. It says slip stitch at the top of turning chain when it states for the foundation chain do not turn so where is the turning chain. It makes my pattern off when i make the chains.

      I tried one this morning, very easy to do, but i used a single strand of DMC floss and a size B hook. The crochet circle earring #1 ended up being a 2 inch diameter circle. . I also used the magic circle for this one. Very nice pattern, Thank You!

      You're welcome Bheng.

      It seems that as we mature, we lose our fondness for attention-grabbing accessories. LOL!

      Yes, Claire. It will. It's pretty difficult at first because of the size of the thread. But you'll get the hang of it soon.

      Lovely. I tried to follow your pattern and found it very easy to understand. Thank you so much for sharing your skills.

      My only trouble is getting the tension right, but hopefully this comes with practice (please tell me it does!).

      Thank you, agreenworld, dipsmi, Bldg an Architect, and Silwen. Your positive comments inspire me to create more. When I first conceptualized this series, I did not expect this warm welcome.

      Thank you very much.
