Free Crochet Pattern: Mama's DC Earrings
It's such a wonder how a simple crochet disc trimmed with a bit of color and a silver cross could look so lovely as a jewelry! This is a very simple crochet project that you can give as a gift to a fashionable loved one. Click here for all my FREE CROCHET PATTERNS.
(I named it after my mother because I made her cry the night I made this. I made it known to her the heartaches I had considering how differently she treated me and my other siblings, a case known as Middle Child Syndrome. I felt that it probably hit her hard because she never thought I felt that way about how she did things. Don't get me wrong, my mom is a good mother. She just wasn't as fair. It must be hard to be fair when you have 5 kids to attend to. It's so easy to have a favorite.)
This is the only crochet book I have and my crochet conventions are based on what I found here. Yeah, it features a lot of other needlework art, which is great for inspiration whenever I ran out of things to crochet.
