Sweetheart Earrings

PDF version
These cute earrings are the easiest to make. They take less than half an hour to crochet and a tiny amount of yarn. They are a great idea for Valentine’s Day, or any day – so what are you waiting for – grab your hook and get started!

Here’s how I made them:

Yarn - red crochet cotton – only small amount needed.
Hook – 1.5 mm.
Notions – earring hooks.

Pattern (English terms used)

Finished size – 1.5mm wide

Make 4 ch.

1st round: 11 tr (US = dc) into 1st of the 4 ch. The other 3 ch count as first tr. Sl st into top of 3ch to join round.

2nd round: sl st into next tr, (1 dc {US = sc}, 2 tr) into next tr, (2 tr, 1 dc) into next tr, sl st into next tr, (1dc, 2 tr) into next tr, (2 tr, 1 dc) into next tr, sl st into next 3 tr, (1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc) into next tr, sl st into next 3 tr. Fasten off.

Tidy loose ends.
Attach earring hooks to the back loop only of the sl st at the centre of the top of the heart.

So easy, yet so effective.

  8. I thought it would be difficult to make, but they weren't! I have no idea what size of cotton thread I used, but the earrings came out about 1.7cm wide, using a 5 crochet steel hook. Thank you! Now I want to make a larger heart to use it like a medallion...maybe changing uk terms for us terms
