Round Earrings - Free Crochet Pattern

These simple round earrings are super stylish for the fashionista. They aren't obnoxiously huge, so these aren't statement earrings, but they add a soft touch to your outfit. It also helps that they're SO EASY to make!

  1. did you made it harden using something to make as earrings?

  2. Yes, I painted the back of the crochet motif with a watered down glue to help it keep it's shape (1/2 water, 1/2 glue). Be sure to pin it down so it dries flat!

  3. What kind of glue did you use? Was it like an Elmer's white glue.

    1. Elmer's glue would work. Be sure to water it down a bit so that the threads absorb it better. I use either Mod Podge or Tacky Glue (depending on what I have in stock at the moment)

  4. Thank you for the pattern! Enjoyed making myself a couple in different colours, and will make some for girlfriends as little gifts ;)
    I corrected the pattern in round 2, in stead of ch1 after dc2tog, I did ch3 to follow the rest of the pattern.

  5. I realize this is an older post, but I was wondering, when you say dc2tog/dc3tog is this a written variation to the cluster stitches? Thank you so much!
