Holidays have this tendency to sneak up on me, well some do at least. Over the weekend I was hanging out, crocheting, and relaxing and I started seeing pattern round-ups on FB and Pinterest for Valentine’s Day patterns. It took me all of two seconds to realize, although I totally knew it, Valentine’s Day is very close. Like 3 Tuesday blog updates close. I like to post holiday appropriate patterns and I don’t know what happened! I just wasn’t paying attention or something, because I was caught off guard. So, first thing I decided was to write up my Kylie earrings pattern, for those who’d like a fun pair of earrings for the holiday. Only, the earrings weren’t as cute as I would like, kinda flat across the top, so I had to update them from the original design a touch. I do hope you like them, regardless. I also worked them up in WW cotton yarn and a G (4.00 mm) hook to see if the design still worked and it does. So you can use this as a applique or earrings, your choice! If you want another accessory to go with your new earrings, don’t forget to check out my Valentine’s Day ring pattern as well. Also, I’m starting a new way of doing pattern giveaways, check out my current one for my Luisa Asymmetrical Shawl. Don’t forget to sign up for my new weekly newsletter so you get notified about giveaways!

Terms/ stitches used:

  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Hdc: half double crochet
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Tr: treble crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st at the end of the row.
  • While I wrote ch 3 or ch 4 for the beginning of rows, you could use a replacement st.
  • If you’d like the earrings to be smaller, you could use a smaller hook and still get a cute effect.
  • If you’d like to make these slightly more festive, use the doily/ lacy idea I used on my heart ring. It’ll give it a little something more. 😀

Finished measurements:

  • Earrings (just the heart):
    • Height: about 1″
    • Width: just over 2″
  • Applique:
    • Height: about 3″
    • Width: just over 4″

Fasten off, weave in your ends.

For earrings: 
Use diluted fabric stiffener to make the earrings flat as possible. I put them on a plastic wrap or bag and then get them completely saturated, then leave them to dry over night. When they are completely dry, use your metal jump rings, this is where the pliers come into use, and attach one to the slip st from row 4, then attach another to that. When you’ve got both of your rings attached, attach your french hook and then you’re all set! Tada, super cute right?

In other news, I released my Luisa Asymmetrical Shawl design and it’s on sale for $1.99 until Jan 26th. I saw I design like this but it was knitted. Sadly, I cannot knit. Dunno why, I have tried, it just didn’t click. Perhaps one day I will return to it and try again. For now, I try to make some knitted things I see in crochet, like the Luisa. I just loved the way the asymmetrical design laid on the model and I knew I had to make one. And all the feedback from my testers on the Luisa make me so happy! They really liked the design, and I always love when that happens. I hope you like it too! Go here for a chance to win the Luisa!

    I found your pattern for Kylie Hearts this week on Pinterest. I made two, purchased the stuff to make them into earrings, and wore them to church today! Thank you for a lovely pattern and the instructions for making them into earrings.

    Just noticed an error in row 2. It should read:
    Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc twice into the ring, ch 2, *dc 3 times into the ring, ch 2,* repeat from * to * 3x more, slip st into the first st to secure – 12 dcs
    Otherwise you only get 9 stitches.

      Hi! No, the row is correct as written, the ch-3 counts as your first dc, then you dc twice more, *dc 3 times,* and then repeat from * to * 2 more times, which gives you a total of 4 sections of 3 dcs, which gives you a total of 12 dcs. Don’t forget to count the what’s in the *’s.
      I hope that makes sense.
