Pretty Poppy Earrings

PDF version
I recently bought a bag of crochet cottons in various colours including a rather vibrant red. As soon as I saw the colour I knew I was going to make some poppy earrings.
As with all my other earrings, they are so quick to make and use a very small amount of yarn. I used Coats crochet cotton #12 and a 1.5mm hook. Here’s how I made them:

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

Pattern (English terms used)

Finished size – 2 cm in diameter

2 chain.

1st round: 6 dc into 2nd chain from hook. Join with a slip st into 1st dc. Break off black and join in red.

2nd round: 1 ch, 1 dc into same stitch as chain, [2 ch, 1 dc into next dc] 5 times, 2 ch. Sl st into 1st dc. (6 spaces)

3rd round: 1 ch, [1 dc, 2 ch, 3 tr, 2 ch, 1 dc] into each 2 ch space, sl st into 1st dc. Fasten off.

Attach earring hooks to one of the petals through the top of the middle treble.



All done, now your pretty poppy earrings are ready to wear.

  3. I loved these earrings as soon as I saw them and thought that you could make them in other color combinations to coordinate with your clothing. I will make them some time. Thanks for sharing - all the way from the UK to Richmond, Virginia, where I live.
