il_570xN.517755559_o2j6As I’ve mentioned before, I started my crochet journey by making jewelry, and I haven’t stopped yet. This Sol Necklace Set is one of the first designs I made. It’s fairly simple, though it looks far more intricate. I’ve found that since the motifs look so much like suns, they are best suited to bright, loud, and vibrant colors like orange, yellow, and lime green. You can do as I did here and mix colors or just make them solid.

Today, I’ll be sharing the pattern for the earrings. Next week we’ll work in the necklace motif.

  • size 3 cotton crochet thread
  • one skein of embroidery floss
  • Size (E) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • Jewelry findings: 2 jumprings, 2 split rings, 2 fish wires

Directions

Ch 20 and sl st in first ch to form a ring

Rnd 1: ch 1, 36 sc in ring, sl st in first sc to join

Rnd 2: *ch 7, skip next 2 sc, sl st in next sc; rep from * around, ending with sl st in first sl st. Fasten off.

Attach your jump ring to any of the 7 ch loops. Attach your fish wire to the split ring then attach the split ring to the jump ring. You could eliminate the split ring for simplicity’s sake, but I find that the fish wire can sometimes slip through that tiny gap in the jump ring. Seriously. I was walking around all day one time with half an earring on because my motif had fallen off somewhere. Not cool.

I starch all of my jewelry pieces because I tend to be rather rough on items and that helps them last a bit longer, but these earrings will certainly hold their shape without starching.

Next week, we work on the necklace motif. I have to tell you that it is slightly more complex than the earrings.
