Owl Eye Earrings-FREE crochet pattern

Earrings have perhaps been the most popular item I have sold. I’ve probably given away more earrings than anything else, too! But one problem I’ve encountered with many crochet earring patterns is that for any sort of interest, they usually turn out pretty large. I personally adore large earrings. But not everyone does. For a smaller look, and without basically using sewing thread, you need at the most a 1-2 round earring. What can you do, then, besides a basic circle? In comes my first written pattern!

 hoo-hoo!

PATTERN (make 2)

Form a magic circle/loop.

Round 1: Chain 3 (counts as first DC); DC 23 times inside circle; join at top of beginning chain 3 with a slip stitch, pulling your circle tight.

Round 2: Chain 1; Slip stitch and ch 1 in first stitch and each remaining stitch around; join with a slip stitch at base of first chain.

Finish off and attach fish hooks at the top of each earring made.

Variation: When using worsted weight yarn, you can just DC 12 into the magic loop to make a smaller earring.

  1. Hi, my name is bejaye, love the pattern. I have already tried it out and have many a lot of different colors to give away as gifts. On some of them I chose to double up on the thread making them a little bigger. I wear a natural, for me I like the bigger earrings. I am planning to do a pair for myself in black and white. Love the pattern, really easy to make.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks so much for the feedback, Bejaye! I love how quick they are to do. With two kids (2 and 4), I don’t always plan far enough ahead. I’ve made these several times for last-minute gifts! Many blessings to you!

  2. Ashley, I wanted to ask your permission to sell what I make, giving you the credit of course. We do community sales in the neighborhood and wanted to make sure that it is ok with you. I will be attending an international convention 8/1-3/14 and plan to give some as gifts. Hope to hear from you soon…..P.S no internet sales just local….Bejaye

    • Yes, you are more than welcome to sell them! Internet sales are fine as well if you ever have the chance. Just link back to my site in your listing is all I ask. I hope you have successful sales!

      • Thank you so much. I was just on a sight and the crocheter did not want the necklace made for anyone else or sold. I don’t understand that. If you put it out there how can stop anyone from selling. If someone see you wearing something that you made,crocheted I mean, and they ask if you will make one for them and how much,how can you say no them…So glad you are allowing me to sell what I make. And yes I will refer back to your link so that you get the credit. Thanks again, have a great day.
