Caribbean Wave Hoop Earrings, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Caribbean Wave Hoop Earrings are a fun and fast little project!  Gorgeous little scallops are crocheted right onto the earring hoop of your choice in just two rows.  A great project to upcycle a plain old pair of hoops too!  The satiny embroidery floss gives it a gorgeous glossy sheen as well.  Make one set just for you and one for a friend!

Materials:
  • D (3.25 mm) crochet hook 
  • 1 skein cotton embroidery floss (I used DMC floss in #3804 for the pink and #959 for the aqua)
  • Small, thin tapestry needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Earring hoops (you can upcycle earrings you already have or put them together yourself.  I assembled my earrings so I also used 2 french hooks and 2 jump rings)
  • Jewelry Pliers (only need these if assembling yourself, regular needle nose pliers work great too)


Instructions:

Tie floss right onto hoop and slide the knot over a bit to the right.

Row 1: Insert hook into the hoop and bring up a loop. Ch 1, then wok 12 sc into the center of the hoop along the edge.

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn.  *Work 3 dc into the first st.  Skip the next stitch, then slip stitch into the next stitch.  Repeat from * across until you have 4 scallops.  Work a slip stitch into the same stitch as that last scallop.  This will give the scallop a nice rounded look.

Fasten off and weave any ends that remain.  If assembling your earrings like I did, use pliers to carefully open up the jump ring and slide earring hoop bottom and earring hook on.  Close jump ring with pliers and you're finished!
