Tutorial Tuesday

Motif Crochet Earrings


I always use a Steel hook 7, and crochet thread size 10.
but you could use whichever one you like to make bigger or smaller earrings.

Chain 4, sl st. in the 4th chain to form a ring.

Chain 1, sc in ring 12 times. slt st. in first sc.

Chain 4 (counts as dc and chain 1), (Dc, chain 1 ) in the 1st st. and in the next 11 stitches. slt st in 3rd chain.

chain 1, (hdc, dc, hdc) in all chain one spaces. slt st in first st. Finish off.

You can't really sell them if you teaching people how to do them. LOL :) Wish I could crochet.

Also, you could sell those magnets you make, they are really cute too!

It has become increasingly difficult for me to find free Crochet patters. I just persue it as a hobby in the oldfashioned way and don't want to spend money on buying patterns.
God bless you, Bridget! I made a pair for a friend on her b'day.

Happy Ginni, there are a bunch of free patterns online. I never pay for a pattern. Try crochetpatterncentral.com or I google a idea with the words "crochet pattern" in front of it. So for example yesterday I wanted a dino hat. So I googled "crochet pattern dinosaur hat" came up with some free and some to buy I only use free ones. Hope that helps.
