A 30-Minute Earring to Crochet
If you have seen Teardrop Earrings #1, #2, #3, and #4, you'll surely notice that this one is constructed differently from them. This is the only one that adhered to my original sketches because of its simplicity.
It can't be denied that this one is very dainty, so I hope you'll like it.
Cover Hub: 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet
- 30-Minute Earrings to Crochet - A Collection of Free Crochet Motif Patterns
I wrote this hub to contain repeated information in the series such as MATERIALS, TOOLS, ASSEMBLY, and FINISHING. Aside from that, all the patterns included in the series is indexed here.
- Dc, hdc, tr, dtr, trtr, hdtr*, htr*
- Working in rounds
*special stitches defined in within Crochet Pattern
Every earring in this series uses three strands of polyester sewing thread crocheted together. For the first pair of earrings, I used 3 strands of pink sewing thread while the second uses a combination of purple, lavender and milky white sewing threads.
These are crocheted using a 1.00-mm hook.
Instead of using fish hooks, I attached the motifs to kidney wires. But you can use fish hooks too.

- Ch – chain
- Sc – single crochet

I'm not understanding the completion of round 1. It says slip stitch at the top of turning chain when it states for the foundation chain do not turn so where is the turning chain. It makes my pattern off when i make the chains.

I am very flattered Sal. Thank you for your kind words about my pattern.

I tried one this morning, very easy to do, but i used a single strand of DMC floss and a size B hook. The crochet circle earring #1 ended up being a 2 inch diameter circle. . I also used the magic circle for this one. Very nice pattern, Thank You!

You're welcome Bheng.
It seems that as we mature, we lose our fondness for attention-grabbing accessories. LOL!

Beautiful concept :) I like it.. it's so pretty... however, now that I saw your many crochet earrings.. I wonder where the Kikay-me used to be hahahahah I used to wear long kikay earrings with matching bracelets... and now, I don't even own a single earring... I'll try to make one.. :) Thanks for posting your patterns :)
Moira Durano-Abesmo (author) from Sagay, Camiguin, Philippines on April 01, 2012:
Yes, Claire. It will. It's pretty difficult at first because of the size of the thread. But you'll get the hang of it soon.
Claire B on March 30, 2012:
Lovely. I tried to follow your pattern and found it very easy to understand. Thank you so much for sharing your skills.
My only trouble is getting the tension right, but hopefully this comes with practice (please tell me it does!).

Thank you, agreenworld, dipsmi, Bldg an Architect, and Silwen. Your positive comments inspire me to create more. When I first conceptualized this series, I did not expect this warm welcome.
Thank you very much.
Silwen from Europe on March 01, 2012:
Another one great pattern, Moira. I am a great fan of your earring. I do not wear earring myself, but I love crocheting them. Thank you for great inspiration.
