Crochet Pattern: Spring Flower Earrings

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 9 Comments
What could be better than a pair of bright-looking spring earrings to go with that new spring dress? In my opinion, jewelry needs to look delicate and I wondered if it was possible to make yarn earrings look delicate. Even though since then I have found yarn to be an excellent choice, switching to crochet thread will guarantee that delicacy. Spring Flower Earrings

  7. bindu says:

    If you make the earrings without hardening the flowers, will they stay like that? The yarn is so delicate, it will curl and lost the shape right?

    • So sorry Bindu for not getting back sooner. There was a problem with the message in my email.

      I find the flowers to be stiff enough despite the delicate yarn since they are worked with a small hook and therefore quite a tight stitch.

      But if you would like to harden them, I’ve heard you could brush Elmer’s glue all over them, rinse off the extra glue, and then hang them to dry. I’ve never tried it so I don’t know for sure if it will work, but the method sounds plausible.

      I hope this has been helpful for you.

      Amy
