Dainty Hexagon Earrings

This earring design was one of my first when I first moved back to San Diego. When we moved back, I had just delivered my youngest daughter, and was recovering from pregnancy and delivery. Crocheting was one of my biggest outlets. I loved it. I started designing a few earrings and a few scarf designs for charity. I love crocheting and I hope you enjoy this pattern!

Size 7 crochet hook (This is the first set I ever owned!)
Crochet Thread size 10 (This is a great brand for cotton thread!)
Size 4 Crochet Hook (I highly recommend this set!)
Embroidery Floss (This is a great deal on bulk floss!)
Sewing needle (Blunt ended needles are a MUST HAVE!)
Earring findings (Here's a great starter kit!)
Round Nose Pliers (I highly recommend this kind of pliers when working with earring findings!)

Works out to be about 1.2 inches wide using the cotton thread, or 1.5" using the embroidery floss.

Round 1: Ch 6, sl st to form ring.
Round 2: Ch 6 (counts as dc + 3 ch), (dc + 3 ch) in each ch around. Sl st to 3rd ch of first ch-6.
Round 3: Ch 1, *(2 sc, ch 3, 2 sc) in the ch-3 sp, sc in the dc from previous row; repeat 5 more times. sl st and finish off.
