Chandelier Earrings

This is probably my last crochet pattern for this month... the rest of the posts will be about the various other crafts I've been working on. I've seen a few different full fan crochet earrings, but I thought that the full 180 degree fan was too much, and I thought it would look cute to have a smaller fan, so I wrote one up! I think it turned out less like a fan and more like a chandelier, which is why I called it that! Enjoy!

Materials:
Size 7 crochet hook (This is the first set I ever owned!)
Crochet Thread size 10 (This is a great brand for cotton thread!)
Sewing needle (Blunt ended needles are a MUST HAVE!)
OR
Size 4 Crochet Hook (I highly recommend this set!)
Embroidery Floss (This is a great deal on bulk floss!)
Sewing needle

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


Pattern:
Row 1: Ch 6 (counts as dc + ch-3), dc in 1st ch (or 6th ch from hook). Turn.
Row 2: Ch 6 (counts as dc + ch-3), dc in the ch-sp, ch 3, dc on top of the turning ch (should be top of the ch-3 that counted as a dc from previous row). Turn.
Row 3: Ch 6 (counts as dc + ch-3), dc in the ch-sp, ch 3, dc in ch-sp, ch 3, dc on top of the turning ch (should be top of the ch-3 that counted as a dc from previous row). Turn.
Row 4: Ch 1, *(1 sc, ch 3, 2 sc, ch 3, 2 sc, ch 3, 1 sc) in the ch-3 sp, repeat from * two times, performing the last sc in the top of the ch-3 that counted as a dc from the previous row.


Be sure to block it well, as that is the best way for the earrings to keep their shape.

Here is a chart to help you out if you need it.
