LACE HOOP EARRINGS
** a quick note about hoop earrings -- I picked up a giant package of nickel-free hoop earrings by Bead Landing (I got them from my local Michaels). I expected that there would only be one size of earrings in the package, but there were TWO different sizes. This pattern is for the RED earrings, and is designed to fit the larger size hoop.)**
One pair of plain hoop earrings - approximately 1.5" across
Embroidery floss in your favorite color - approximately 6 yards
Size B crochet hook
Tapestry needle (or other yarn needle of appropriate size)
Small jewelry pliers (only necessary if you purchase the bead landing hoop earrings)
To Make The Earrings:
Pull a loop up around the hoop earring and ch 1.
R1: (work all single crochet stitches around the hoop) 24 sc, turn (24 st)
R2: (ch 3, skip 3 st, sc) 6 times, turn (24 st)
R3: ch 1, 3 sc in first ch space, ([sc, 3 hdc, sc] in next ch space) 4 times, 3 sc in last ch space (26 st)Fasten off. Weave in ends.
If you purchased the Bead Landing Nickel-Free Hoop Earrings, please go HERE where I explain how to finish the earrings so that they don't fall off while you're wearing them (totes important, right?!).
Have a wonderful day, Dynamos!!!
Hey Dynamos! A quick request: If you Pin this project onto Pinterest, would you pin the picture of my mom? There is nothing funnier to me than the idea that my mom would be searching for DIY projects on Pinterest and find her own face... LOL!! xo Jaime
