Hello! How’s everyone this week? I’m so tired! I had to work on Sunday night and stayed out late after. I feel like I’m not young enough to do that, because it’s Tuesday and I’m still trying to make up the lost sleep. I’m just dragging and can’t wake up today either! But luckily I’ve got today’s post all ready to go, except with my lil’ blurb part at the beginning here.
This week I wanted to go with something fun and, really, who doesn’t think pizza is fun? I wanted to keep this design simple, while incorporating tapestry into the design. You can leave the color C portions off and draw them on later with puffy paint or something if you don’t want to do the tapestry work. In the places where the “pepperonis” are I just did the couple scs, dropped the yarn, and picked it back up when I got to it again, like if you were using bobbins, I hope that makes sense. Either way, I hope you like this new pattern combo! 😀

You can get an ad-free downloadable pdf in my Ravelry shop for $.50. or in my Craftsy shop for $.50.

Materials: 

Earrings:

Applique:

  • US G (4.00) mm crochet hook
  • Worsted weight/ size #4/ medium weight yarn
    •  .5 Oz/ 25 yards
    • I used Sugar and Cream cotton yarn for this (3 colors)
  • Yarn needleRavelry link

Gauge:

  • 2.25: 1″ x 1″ = 10 scs x 10 rows
  • G: 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows

Terms/ stitches used:

  • Ch: Chain
  • St: Stitch
  • Slip St: Slip Stitch
  • Sc: Single Crochet

Notes:

  • The ch 1, at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • Both patterns are worked back and forth,  with a turn at the beginning/ end of the row.
  • Color A is off white, color B is yellow ,and color C is red.
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parentheses means.
  • Color C is only worked where it’s at and then dropped, while color A is carried beneath it.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.
  • You can replace the chain row with a foundation single crochet row.
  • This is a good how-to on carrying yarn through the pizzas in the photos. Here’s a great tutorial on color changes.

  • Width: 1.75″ (not including findings)

Finishing:
Once you get all your ends woven in, lay the pizzas down and coat them in fabric stiffener. Once they’re nice and coated, lay ’em flat and let ’em air dry. Once they’re dry, secure your findings to them as you’d like (in corners or the center as I have made here).
I always use fabric stiffener when I make earrings because it helps ’em keep their shape, which is important when you’re making things, like pizza, that tend to be very recognizable.
