A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet

This pair of earrings is my personal favorite. I love how the milky white thread harmonizes with the gray thread making this earring very elegant. I can imagine wearing it with a wedding gown or I'll just wear it to one of my friend's weddings so the bride can beg me to remove it and give it to her as a wedding present. LOL!

It's also my first time to change colors for my earrings, yet this will look superb even with just one color.

I hope you feel the same way I do.

MATERIALS:

All the earrings in this series uses three strands of polyester sewing thread crocheted with #6 or 1.00mm steel hook. Since I used two colors (milky white and gray) for this pair, I needed six strands in all. But you can crochet this with just one color.

The complete list of materials can be seen on the cover hub.

These are absolutely beautiful!! I can't wait to try them. I also want to try using size 30 with one strand of sewing thread and see how that looks. Thanks!!

craftcove from Australia on April 02, 2012:

I've never heard of turning at the end of each row when working in rounds. It was doing my head in! So I just did it without turning.

I love the charts! It would be great if you had them for each pattern.

Beautiful work! Thanks!
