✿ Flower Motif Crochet Earrings ✿ - Free pattern

 

Hi guys! Today I have a very easy tutorial for a free crochet earrings using a simple flower motif. 

For this project you will need:

- sport yarn and adequate hook
- jump rings and hook ear wires

 Pattern:
Chain 6. Join to make ring.

Round 1: sc 12 in ring. As you crochet, push the yarn back on the ring to make room for those 12 stitches.

  

Round 2: "chain 3, make a dc in the next st, chain 3 and sl st in the same stitch.

  

Make a sc in the next stitch. 

 

Chain 15 and sc in the next stitch".

  

Repeat pattern from "to". 

  

When you come to the end (there should be 6 big petals) end the round by making a sl st. 
 

Those petals can be unruly and twirl. If you like them like that, leave them as are. 


I wanted mine to be neat and ordered so I steam pressed them to get them into shape.  Please cover the motifs with a cotton napkin when pressing so that they are not ruined. 



 

You can use only one flower for an earring. I wanted to make some statement earrings so I made a dangling pair. 
To do this, add jump rings  to join two (you can by all means sew/crochet them together)...

 

 ... and a hook ear wire.



Your earrings are done! If you make them in the above colors you can also make a special 4th of July garland!
