Crochet Pattern: Hanging Blossom EarringsBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 3 Comments
|It’s hard to ignore the outburst of beauty that comes with spring. One of my favorite flowers are gladiolus and every year I watch my flower bed closely to catch the first glimpse of their glory coming out of the ground. Flowers are the best way to celebrate the arrival of spring. Being spring-inspired, I found some of my lighter colored yarn and started with the intentions of creating something dainty, just like new blossoms. If you’d like a stiffer earring, try starching the flowers before attaching them to the earrings.|
