The combination of jewellery and lace is a perfect and timeless duo. In this course, Emilia Lach will show you how to make crochet earrings. Thanks to this step-by-step course, learning how to crochet will be pure pleasure :). Crochet hook in hand and let's get to work!

I have been crochet for years, but the markings on the diagrams can make you dizzy, all because each country has a different symbol designation. For a beginner it is a real challenge. In this course, I made sure to show you as accurately as possible how to make one of the simplest crochet patterns. Welcome to the step-by-step crocheting tutorial! 

You will need;

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

I start my work from making a slip knot. Make a loop with your yarn, then bring the tail of the yarn over the working yarn.

Step 1

Step 2

Create a pretzel shape with the loop. Pass the working yarn under the tail, so that it passes through the loop.

Step 1

Step 3

Catch the yarn in the middle with the hook and pull. 

Step 1

Step 4

Press your finger where the yarn tail crosses the working yarn. Tighten the loop.

Step 1

Step 5

Here we have a slip knot.

Step 1

Step 6

Now, let’s start to make a rosette. In the first round: chain 7 and close them in a circle with a slip stitch.

To make a chain, yarn over and draw your hook through the slip knot. Continue the same (passing through the following chains) until you chain 7.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 7

As you have chained 7, close them in a circle with a slip stitch. Insert your hook through the very first chain. There are 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw the working yarn through the 2 loops.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 8

The first round is finished so it’s time to make another one. We will make 20 trebles in the centre ring. I will also hide the tail yarn.

Chain 3 instead of the first treble. Put the tail yarn along with the first round of your work. Yarn over (wrap the tail yarn too), insert your hook through the central ring (to wrap the foundation chain and the tail yarn), yarn over, and draw through the chain. There are 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over, draw through the two loops. Yarn over and draw through the two loops left on the hook.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 9

Make the following trebles the same way: yarn over, insert your hook through the centre ring (yarn over the foundation chain and the tail yarn), yarn over, draw the hook though the centre ring (there are 3 loops on the hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops.

Step 1

Step 10

There are 20 trebles in total in this round = 3 chains instead of the first treble, and 19 trebles.

Step 1

Step 11

Now we need to close the round to have a neat circle. Insert your hook through the 3 chains (the first treble in the round). Yarn over and draw through the two loops = a slip stitch.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 12

Now, to the next round. We will make trebles separated with chains. Insert your hook through the every other treble of the previous round (see the picture below). When you look at your work, you can see that the trebles make a herringbone. This is where you will insert your hook.

The first treble in this round is made with chains, so I chain 3.

Step 1

Step 13

Chain 4.

Step 1

Step 14

Make a treble. Yarn over, insert your hook through the 2nd treble of the previous round, yarn over and draw through the chain you inserted your hook. There are 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over, draw the hook through 2 loops, yarn over again and draw the hook through 2 loops.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 15

The first curve is done. Make the following curves the same way. Chain 4, treble, skip one chain (of the previous row) and make another treble in the next chain.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 16

As you have made all 10 trebles, it’s time to close the last curve. Chain 4. Insert your hook through the centre of the 1st curve and close the round with a slip stitch.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 17

The next round is made of trebles only. Chains – the curves of the previous rows – are the base for the trebles we are going to make now. Chain 3 for the 1st treble, insert your hook through the curve and make 4 trebles. Insert your hook through the next curve and make 5 trebles, and then make another 5 trebles in the next curve. Continue the same way.

To make it short: in each 4 chains = curves of the previous row, make 5 trebles.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 6

Step 18

As all the trebles are made, close the round with a slip stitch. Insert your hook through the very first treble, yarn over and draw through both loops on the hook.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 19

The next round is made of trebles and 5 treble clusters. Start with the 1st treble, that is 3 chains. Then, chain 3 and make a 5 treble cluster. To make the cluster you need to make 5 incomplete trebles. Yarn over and insert your hook through a treble of the previous row (in the picture below you can see the exact places where you should insert the hook) and make an incomplete treble. That means, yarn over, insert the hook through the chain of the previous round and draw. There are three loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw through the 2 loops (the rest is left on the hook), yarn over again, insert your hook through the next stitch of the previous row. Draw, yarn over and draw through 2 loops, yarn over and insert your hook through the next stitch of the previous row. Continue until you have made all 5 incomplete trebles.

There are 5 loops of the incomplete trebles on the hook. Yarn over and draw through all the loops that are on your hook.

Step 21

A 5 treble cluster is finished. Now, chain 3 and 1 treble in the chain of the previous row. The place where you should insert your hook is marked in the picture.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 22

Continue: chain 3, 5 treble cluster made of 5 incomplete trebles, chain 3, treble in the next stitch of the previous row. Repeat that until you have completed the whole round.

Step 23

To finish the round: chain 3, insert your hook through the space at the beginning of the round, yarn over, draw through the chain and the loop = a slip stitch.

Step 2

Step 3

Step 24

The round is closed and finished. Now, to the next, final round. We are going to work with double crochets, so, to begin this round, chain 1 for the first double crochet. Before you start making double crochets, prepare 1 rib from a memory wire, which will be a frame for your earring.

Step 1

Step 25

You almost know how to make crochet earrings.

Now it’s the time when you will need all the pliers or a one-step-looper. No matter what you will use, remember about your eyes, because a memory wire very often hits one’s eyes while being cut. Watch your fingers, too. A memory wire is a kind of a spring. We need to cut 1 rib of the wire plus some extra part of it to make loops – they will be used to attach the earwires.

Step 1

Step 26

An old Chinese proverb says: “before you cut it, measure it 10 times”. That’s why I made the 1st loop on the wire, then I measured where the 2nd one should be. A wire circle should be a bit bigger than the rosette, because the rosette should be a bit stretched.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 27

The wire loops should look as in the picture.

Step 1

Step 28

The picture below shows how you should hold your work. In this round, we are going to make double crochets placing the wire inside them.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 29

Make 3-4 double crochets in each curve (depending how many you need).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 30

As you have made all of the double crochets, close the round with a slip stitch. Insert your hook through the very first treble, yarn over and draw through both loops in the hook.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 31

Pull the loop that is on the hook, cut the yarn. Zigzagging, pass the yarn through several stitches to secure it.

Step 1

Step 32

Cut the unneeded yarns. Your earring is finished. Now you need to make another one.

Step 33

The rosettes are finished. Attach the earwires and you can wear your new earrings.
