Happy Friday guys!
I have the perfect weekend project if you could spare a little time. We are going to make flower crocheted earrings spiced up with beads.
1. Crochet earrings (pattern below)
2. Beads and jump rings (optional and depending on earrings' length)
3. Earring hooks
Crochet Earrings Pattern
Thread and hook: I used doubled ecru thread (40) and a 1.7 mm hook.
Crochet stitches: chaining and slip stitching only!
Length: optional (ours - 11 cm / 4.3").
Ch5 and sl st in the first st. First petal made. Ch 5 and sl st in the 1st st of the second petal. Repeat this 3 more times to get 5 petals.
When all 5 are made, sl st in the very first petal you made.
Next, chain 10. Five for the body and five for the petal of the next flower. Repeat pattern until you achieve desired length of earrings. Ours have 7 petals and are 11 cm / 4.3".
Tie knots, cut tails and weave ends. Get the hooks and beads ready.
Earrings type 1: Attach the hook. Take the bead and using a jump ring attach it on the "neck / body" in the stitch immediately below the flower. Attach the other beads.
Earrings type 2: Instead of attaching below the flower, attach the bead on the petal that comes center down of the length of earring. Choose type that suits you best. We chose the second.
And that is it! Needless to mention that besides easy and fast to make, they are also a perfect last minute gift.
