Crochet Pattern: Giselle EarringsBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
|Lovely and long, these earrings are perfect for a sun-dress, formal gown, or even just shorts and a tank. Adding a bead gives it a touch of glamour while the shimmer of the yarn speaks volumes of elegance. They are simple to make and pretty to look at so don’t be surprised if all your girlfriends want a pair! Tip: Make them shorter by only crocheting two circles per earring.|
