Kaleidoscope Earrings Crochet Pattern
by: Keturah Ariel
- Beginner level
- US 10/6.0mm hook
- 1 skein of any kind of medium worsted rainbow or multi colored yarn.
- 1 pair of large thin bracelets or circle earrings
- matching thread and needle
- earring hooks
(TIP- do not join rounds, work in a spiral.)
Start with a magic loop/ring and chain 10 stitches in the loop. Close the loop and pull tight. Weave in end as you crochet the first row.
ROW 1: DC 2x in each of the 10 stitches to equal 20 stitches. Do not join the row and continue right into the next row, thus creating a rainbow spiral.
ROW 2: DC entire row. At the end, do not join row but continue in spiral.
ROW 3: Take the bracelet or earring and either SC or DC (depending on how much space you have left between crochet piece and the bracelet) the final row onto the earring. The way that I did it was to hold the yarn under the earring while the crochet piece sits inside of the bracelet, while holding the hook over it. This way it traps the bracelet and sandwiches it in-between, closing off and hiding the bracelet inside of the stitches.
When you get to the end of the row, fasten off and cut yarn. Weave the yarn in. This works on any size bracelet or earring, however you must adjust the rows to fit a bigger or smaller earring. As you can see from the picture, I only had enough room for 3 rows.
FINISHING THE EARRINGS:
With a needle and thread, thread the earring hooks into the top of the crocheted piece.
Repeat process for the other earring and now you have a fabulous pair of colorful giant hooped crochet earrings.
