Tutorial Tuesday

Rose Crocheted Earrings

This is my favorite one! (do not use for anything other then personal use)

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.

Make a magic ring or Chain 10, sl st in 1st chain to form a ring.

Chain 1, 17 sc in ring, sl st in 1st chain.

Chain 4, skip 2 sc, 1 sc into next sc, *4 chain, skip 2sc, 1 sc into the next sc, rep from * 3 times. Chain 4, sl st in 1st of the 4ch.

Into each 4ch lp work (1sc, 1hdc, 3dc, 1hdc, 1sc), sl st in 1st sc.

Sl st in back of the sc on round 2, *5ch, keep yarn at back of work, 1sl st into back of next sc on 2nd round, rep from * 4 times, 5 chain, sl st in same sc as 1st.

Into each 5ch lp work (1sc, 1hdc, 5dc, 1hdc, 1sc), sl st in 1st sc.

sl st into the back of the sl st on rnd 4, *6ch, keeping yarn at back work, 1 sl st into next sc on rnd4, rep from * to end.

Into each 6ch lp work (1sc, 1hdc, 7dc, 1hdc, 1sc), sl st in 1st sc. Finish off.

HDC=half double
sl st= slit stitch

I almost followed those crochet istructions... alright,you lost me at "1hdc". They sure are pretty though!

I can make you some if you want. hdc means Half double crochet. Its kinda like a double where you yarn over first but like a single because you pull through all three loops on the hook.

The font color is white. When it copies its white on white. Select All and choose a different color.
