Gypsy Style Earrings

Gipsy Style Crochet Earrings

A caravan in the garden? Cheerful and colorful, the gypsy folklore brings the joy of life everywhere. Worthy of a true gypsy, these crochet earrings are really trendy. They can be worn with a sober in order to bring a touch of color, but also with a colorful dress for a total gypsy look!

What you need:

- a fine crochet hook;

- 24 glass beads;

- cotton thread;

- 2 stainless steel rings;

- 2 small size (2-3 mm) silver rings;

- 2 ear hoops.

Gypsy Style Earrings

These gypsy style crochet earrings are really easy to make. If you know only some basic crocheting techniques, you will be able to make yourself some nice accessories. So, here are the steps to follow:

1. First thing to do before actually starting crocheting is to attach the 12 beads to the thread.

2. Start by covering the stainless steel ring used as support with simple stitches. The number depends on the thread you are using. Just make sure the ring is covered entirely and the stitches are not too loose.

3. Once the ring is covered, continue with 36 Afghan crochet stitches. I made 2 rows of Afghan stitches, but if you want your earrings to be longer, you can make 3, 4 or even 5.

4. When crocheting the last row of Afghan stitches, release one bead on the 1st stitch, then on each 3rd stitch.
