Crochet Earrings For Beginners 2 >>> Hackovane Nausnice Pro Zacatecniky 2

I am not sure if any of you remember or perhaps saw in old photographs or movies belts made of metal circles that were crochet-ed around? I made one like that when I lived back in my old country. Today, per my daughter's request and her own idea, I created second set of earrings that resemble 60's fashion. They are quite easy to make. See below.

Material:
  • DMC cotton thread (made in France) - 3 different colors of your choice (or just one color if you wish - your choice)
  • Hook #10
  • 6 Twelve mm Split Rings
  • 2 Earrings Hooks
  • Needle
  • Scissors
Abreviations:

SC - single crochet
TO - thread over (instead of YO = yarn over) since we work with a thread
ch - chain
sl. st. - slip stitch

Step-by-step instructions:

Insert each earring hook into the each split ring. You will work on each earring one at a time. You have 4 more split rings - 2 extra rings for each earring.

1. Insert your crochet hook into the split ring (with the earring hook end pointing away from your body - to establish front of the earring), thread over (TO), pull through, TO, pull through the loop, ch1, [insert crochet hook through the opening in the split ring, TO, pull through, TO, pull through both loops - this is single crochet] - repeat many times until all your single crochet stitches are condensed and the metal of the ring doesn't show through. Finish with a sl. st. to connect the circle and weave the end into the crochet row so it doesn't come undone. Please, refer to this image  or this page on my blog, while crochet-ing single stitches in the first row.


 2. Do the same (= one row of single crochet stitches) on two other rings (use on each ring a different color if you wish) BUT this time leave the end about 5-7 inches long do not weave the end immediately to "clean it up". Instead use the end of a second circle to sew it onto the first circle then make a knot and weave it into the SC row of same color so the end is hidden (cleaned up) and does not untie. And at last sew the end of a third circle onto the second circle, and again make a knot and weave it into the SC row of same color so the end is hidden (cleaned up) and does not untie.

3. Repeat steps 1. and 2. for the second earring.
