Daisy Daisy earrings


PDF version
These dainty earrings are so easy to make and look really pretty, especially if the sun is shining. I suddenly felt inspired to make them and in less than an hour I was wearing them. I used Coats mercer crochet cotton #20 and a 1.5mm hook. Here’s how I made them:

Yarn – 2 colours of crochet cotton (white and yellow) – only small amounts needed.
Hook – 1.5 mm.
Notions – earring hooks.

Pattern (English terms used)

Finished size – 2.5cm in diameter

Base ring: using white make 6ch, sl st to join into a ring.

1st round: 7ch (counts as 1 tr and 4 ch), [1 tr into ring, 4 ch] 7 times, sl st into 3rd of 7 ch. (8 spaces)

2nd round: [1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 1 htr, 1 dc] into each space. Sl st into 1st dc. Fasten off white.

Centre: Attach yellow thread to foundation ring between any of the trebles. 3 ch (counts as 1 tr), 1 tr into same space, [2 tr into next space] 7 times, sl st into 3rd of 3 chain. Fasten off.

Attach earring hooks to one of the petals through the top of the treble.
All done, now you can wear your own daisy daisy earrings.

  8. They look really cute. Are you sure you used #20 crochet cotton? I can't find it anywhere.

  9. Yes, but it came from my grandmother's stash so it is very old.
