    these earrings are super-cute…can’t wait to make them…thanks again for the most amazing patterns!!! u rock rachel!!!

  6. If you want a little sparkle on your earrings, add beads! Just figure out how many you are going to use and where, then string them on your yarn before you begin the earring. When you get to the spot where you want a bead, just push it up the yarn to your work, and crochet it in place! It is really simple. This also works with purses, glasses cases, etc. The hardest part is finding beads with holes that are big enough for your yarn!

    cute earrings the only problem I have is how to keep the circle flat? I am thinking of stiffening them

    • Rachel says:

      Hey Faith, you can stiffen them if desired. But the fun with crochet earrings is that they bend and still look neat. I’ve been wearing mine around the past few weeks and love them so far. I even fell asleep with them on a couple times. They didn’t bend as much as I thought they would. Let me know how your earrings turn out!

    You can also make them smaller or larger which is nice.

    Thank You Rachel

    Hi! I was hoping you could help me. In round 1, where is says crochet 12 dc; does that mean 3 dc in each chain? (3dc x 4 chain=12dc) Thanks in advance; I’m new at this! lol! 🙂

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Kristen, the “12 dc in forth ch from hook” means that you’re going to make all 12 double crochets into the forth chain from your hook (the forth chain from your hook is also the first chain you made). Since all the double crochets are being made into one chain, it’ll form a small circle. Let me know if you need more help!

    hello, ive have made several attempts to make these earrimgs but I cant seem to get the circle to even out. not sure what I am doing wrong. please help.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Brit, as you crochet try to double check to make sure you are making the correct number of stitches after you finish each row. If you accidentally add or miss a few stitches it can change the shape of the circle. You can also try blocking your earrings when you’re done so that it holds its shape better. Here’s a post about blocking if you’re interested: Blocking Crochet

    yeah, I got it to even out, I was doing too many, how to I make them bigger. thanks again for the help

    A bit confused, my work is coming out terrible. I have a crochet book and am trying to figure out working in rounds but I cant comprehend how your photo looks as if there are many more chains. double crochet in rounds is so confusing!

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Ashley, try to count the number of stitches you make after you finish each round. If your total number of stitches matches the stitch count (the number at the end of the round, after the colon) then you’re on the right track.

    I just made one earring. I’ve tried different hooks, but the center “hole” looks big. I’m wondering if the magic ring would work better. Please advise. Thanks!

  16. Caren says:

    Finished row one, slip stitched in top of beginning chain four. What then? What does the 12dc mean, or am I finished with row one and it is just telling me that row one is done and I can move on to row two. I have always done the same things and never ventured out, but this is something that I really want to do. I can’t figure out what i am doing incorrectly.

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Caren, the 12 dc at the end after the colon is just telling you the stitch count for the round so you can double check your work. You don’t have to make another 12 dc.
