Flower Power Crochet Earrings




Hey Divas! I've been debating on whether I should do an earring tutorial only because I sometimes I have a hard time verbally explaining things. But I really wanted to do this tutorial. So I made a video to along with the written pattern to help explain things a little better. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to ask any questions.

Materials


Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Thread Size 3
Size 0/3.25MM hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors
Iron-safe scrap fabric
Fabric stiffener
Iron

2 Fish hook earring findings
2 Jump rings

Flower

Start with magic ring

Rnd 1: ch 3, dc 11 in ring, tighten ring, slst to top of ch, fasten off

Rnd 2: Join 2nd color with slst to any dc, ch 1, sc 2 in each st around, slst to first sc, fasten off

Assembly

Use strings that are left out to attach ring and fish hook. Refer to the YouTube videos below for assistance. Use the scrap fabric to iron the earrings by placing the earring face down then the fabric on top of the earring. Hold the iron on top of the fabric for a few seconds. I use the highest temp on my iron, but you may choose to lower the temp to be on the safe side. Spray the earrings with the fabric stiffener on both sides of the earring and let them dry. Once dry you can spray the earrings again to make them stiffer.






Enjoy!!!
