** From the 2005 Christmas Collection**
Pretty earrings to make for yourself or as a gift. Make them in different sized thread or yarn to make them bigger and use them to decorate cards or your Christmas Tree or cake.
They also make great tree decorations.
I used DMC Petra Size 5 to make these earrings. It comes in 100g balls and is ever so slightly thicker than a regular size 10, however, it is soft to the touch and has a sheen to it. Petra is interchangeable with DMC Perle which comes in smaller balls or skeins.
The colours I have used, along with the quantities and any additional materials needed for just that pair of earrings are listed with the individual patterns. These colours are just suggestions. Experiment with your own colours for different looks.
Materials: DMC Petra or Perle No.5 in a variety of colours to suit, kidney wires.
Equipment: 1.50mm hook, Needle for sewing in ends.
Tension (UK terms): Using Perle No.5 and 1.50mm hook, 18 dc and 19 rows to 5cm square.
