Every time I make a new pair of earrings, I say they are my favorite but seriously- these are my favorite! I can’t wait to wear them on the Fourth of July.
The pattern is so simple and there’s only one round to learn to make both pair. You only need to know how to make one star because, the earrings are a total of 6 stars. Attaching 3 per earring, and then attaching hooks. Quick and easy. The written pattern also has images to help if you are more of a visual learner!
I posted a few finished pair on my Etsy because a few people kept asking why I didn’t use my Etsy shop and the answer is because I prefer to keep my shop on my site and not under Etsy. However, for the rest of this month, I will keep these in my shop on Etsy and if you would like to purchase a finished pair from there, click here!
And as always, if you’d like to purchase this ad-free, printable pattern, with pictures, click here!
Without further ado, let’s get into it!
-Size 8 lace thread
-2.25 mm crochet hook
Optional: jump rings and jewelry pliers
– Chain (ch)
– Single crochet (sc)
– Double crochet (dc)
First color (white):
-Make a magic ring, ch 1
-**Inside the ring, make 1 sc, 1 dc, ch 2 and make another dc.
-Repeat ** 4 more times.
-Pull chain tight and fasten off. Weave in ends but leave one tail to attach to next star.
-Make 1 more white star, 2 red and 2 blue.
Using a yarn needle and small piece of thread, attach stars together with a small knot. Tie your top star to the earring hook OR use a jump ring and jewelry pliers to attach jump ring to star and then to hook.
Weave in any remaining ends.
Repeat all for the next earring.
Optional but recommended after making earrings to harden them:
Mix 1 part water with 1 part white glue and dip earrings in mixture, squeeze out excess glue and lay earrings flat on a piece of plastic wrap. Shape stars more by pinching the corners. Let dry overnight.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoy making these and I hope that you tag me in your photos on Instagram @ Homesweetsimpson. Make sure you’re following Home Sweet Simpson on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest! Until next time, happy crocheting!
