Iris Earrings - Free Crochet Pattern



Good morning all!
Today's post is another new thing for me. Crocheted earrings! I've seen some of these on my friends and they look so wonderful and dainty and pretty. I knew at some point I needed to design some. I love that they look WOW but are really easy to make, which means you can whip up a bunch of colours to suit all sorts of outfits in no time at all. I'll be making a bunch for Angels for the forgotten. 




1.5mm hook
Embroidery thread (2 strands, makes the larger earring) OR crochet cotton ( size 8 pearl cotton makes the smaller one)
2 earring hooks per set
2 jump-rings per set

Picot: ch3, slst into the first ch, picot made.
trc: Triple crochet


1. Ch4, join to form a loop.

2. Ch 6 (counts as first trc and ch2), *trc, ch2* into the loop 7 times, join to the 4th chain. (8 trc's total)

3. Sl st into the ch2 space, ch2 (first hdc), hdc 3 times in the ch2 space, ch2, *hdc 4 times in the next ch2 space, ch2* repeat around, join. (32hdc)

4. *Ch5, slst in the next ch2 space*, repeat around, ending with a slst in the last ch2. End off colour.

5. Join contrasting yarn with a slst to any ch5 space, (sc4, picot, sc4, sl st) in the same ch5 space, (sl st, sc4, picot, sc4, sl st) in each remaining ch5 space. Join with a slst to the start. (total of 8 picots)

To construct earrings: Connect the jump-ring to the earring hook, then connect the jump-ring to a picot on the earring.
