As much as I love crochet, I have to admit that just thread doesn’t make for long-lasting earrings. And that’s one battle crochet earrings are set to lose against metal and plastic earrings.
But who said crochet’s just about threads? There are so many beads and metal findings available in the market that even crochet can be made sturdy. And the use of such accessories often reduces the workload. Consider the earring shown above – simply sc (for the uninitiated, that’s single crochet – one of the most basic stitches in crochet) around the ring. Add a bead and a hook, and you’re set.
