Last minute gifts - Crochet earrings and ring

Today I have prepared the instructions for crochet earrings and a rose ring. I believe many of you will like this because the final result is quite appealing.

For today's earrings and ring I used ecru crochet thread simply because I like the feeling crochet jewelry in ecru conveys and it makes jewelry immensely rich and breathtaking. It also adds a vintage feel and is so romantic. The perfect ingredients for a gift.

{Crochet earrings and ring}

Supplies you need:

* Crochet thread of your choice
* For this project I used a 1.9 mm hook
* Metal parts for the earrings and ring base

Skill: Beginner
Time: Less than an hour for all three (including attachment)

1) ch 34
2) ch 3, "3 tr in 2nd st from hook, ch1, 3tr in every second st"; continue from " to" until the final stitch. Then, 2 dc, 1 sc and sl st to end it.

* Leave a long tail because you are going to use it to tie the earrings with the metal part and to stitch the rose itself and to the base of the ring.

The technical drawing:

As you work the pattern the crocheted piece will start to curl up. When you come to the end, leave a long tail which you'll use to tie the piece and attach the metal parts. Weave the ends.

As for the rose, when you get to the end, roll the piece around to bring it into the shape of a rose (flower). With the long tail, stitch trough the rose to fasten it and then sew it onto the disk of the ring. And your gift is ready to go :)

I really hope you like this and that you will make it for someone special in your life.

If you don't want to bother, you can find them here and here.

There is an interesting project coming tomorrow. Do come back!

These are very pretty. I've not crocheted with thread before though I did buy some last year with every intention of using it. These sound simple enough. I will try my hand at it when we have out winter break starting on the 23rd. :) Best wishes, Tammy
