Remember when I said I was slightly obsessed with the fan stitch? Well I didn’t just stop there besides who doesn’t want a matching earring set to go along with everything else they made?
As a side note my husband and I went to Assateague Island to camp last night, its right along the ocean. Their are wild horses that run around the island, which is adorable during the day … But waking up to a horse head butting you because you fell asleep on a picnic table and it thinking you are food is slightly unnerving. He really liked someones watermellon though, they kinda have a bad habit of throwing your coolers on the ground to see what they can find. Still really enjoyable if you live near Maryland and like horses I highly recommend you go on a day visit at least!
Lets continue on with the earrings though.
Fine wire (tarnish resistant) – 28 or 30 gauge (the larger the gauge, the smaller the wire is, which makes it easier to work with your crochet hook) I used a 30 gauge.
Crochet hook – I used a 3/2 .10 mm hook
2 earring hooks– whichever designs that you like!
Beads – each ( 1 center bead and 11 seed beads)
Wire pliers– these are not needed but make your life a lot more easy while using the end beads
Scissors – to cut the wire of course (its very fine so normal scissors will work)
put 8 seed beads and the large bead on the wire.
Slipknot , chain 6, chain 1 with the center beads, then chain 6 again. wrap the tail from the start around the last chain you did forming a circle.
Turn your work single crochet into the next 4 stitches from the hook. Double crochet 9 times into the stitch with the bead (make sure the bead is facing upwards) in each double crochet after the first add a seed bead at the beginning of the double crochet (this will place it at the top and keep them on the same side). Skip 2 stitch and single crochet into the next 4, slip stitch at the top, fasten off.
Use both tails and add 3 seed beads to them, wrap around what ever earring hook you are using, wrap around the wire then bring the wire back through the seed beads wrap that around the piece, cut the wire shorter and put the end back into the wire.
your going to want to pinch the top together to form a more chain like circle (you can do this before adding it to the hook)
repeat for the other one!
you should now have a pair of earrings.
