Easy Crochet Earrings     

Easy crochet earrings - make it with a little bit of yarn, crochet hook, earwires and basic crochet skills. These are quick and easy to make.

Yarn

You can use any yarn and appropriate hook. I used a hand dyed yarn from an indie designer that I had available. It's a lovely deep blue. If I remember correctly the yarn is made from bamboo. It has a sheen to it and it's soft. Lovely to touch but not easier to work with.

Hook

I used 1/B size hook. (US 1/B, UK 13, 2.25mm in metric) My earrings are 4cm in width. If you use a bigger hook you're going to get a larger earring and the other way round for a smaller hook and yarn.(You knew that, right!)

Earwires

You can use earwires that you have made yourself or you can buy ready made ones of your choice at a bead and findings store.

Crochet Skills

These easy crochet earrings are made with single crochet only. You also need to know how to make a magic circle and slip stitch.

Circle - Easy Crochet Earrings

Fold the circle over.

Now you have a half circle piece. The fringe edging will be added to the middle five outer stitches on the edge of both circle halves.  Start by cutting several lengths of yarn/thread and then fold them in half to give you a double piece of thread. Use your crochet hook to pull that double length of yarn through the stitch.
