Birthday Earrings!

This pattern is available for free.

A simple and quick earring pattern that is perfect if you are in sudden need of a birthday gift!

With the thread size indicated, the motifs come out to be about 1.25 inches. This can be made with size 10 thread and a 1.5 mm or smaller hook as well, though of course they will come out larger.

Birthday Earrings*


1.0 mm crochet hook

size 20 thread (I used Flora. It’s very stiff and perfect for earrings)

two earwires

needlenose pliers (tweezers work okay in a pinch)

starch or water/glue mixture for blocking

Chain 8 and join in a loop

Round 1: Ch 3 (count as first dc), 24 dc in loop, sl st to first dc

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, ch 5, skip 1 dc, sc in next dc around until 1 dc away from first st, ch 2, dc in first st.

Round 3: Ch 3 (count as first dc), 3 dc in same space, sc in next space, 4 dc in next space, ch 1, make 3-ch picot, ch 1, 4 dc in same space 5 times, sc in next space, 4 dc in next space, ch 1, make 6-ch picot, ch 1, sl st to first dc.

Cut thread and weave in ends.

Wash and block gently to even out the stitches. Spray with starch or soak in a glue and water solution. Let dry, or if you’re impatient like me, gently press with an iron under a handkerchief on medium heat.

Open the bottom loop on an earwire with the pliers and slip the 6-ch picot into the loop. Close the loop and repeat for the other earring. Admire.
