Sally Skulls Earrings: a free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

They might be a bit ugly but they’re the cute kind of ugly, right? This week I’m releasing another in my Sally Skulls line on Ravelry so I’m kinda glad that the delays in getting the Sally Skulls Earring pattern out. I’m like that, I like to match and stuff. 🙂
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this pattern and make some fun skull earrings for you or someone you love. I was also thinking that this pattern, worked up with worsted weight yarn and like a G or H hook would make a great garland to hang in a house. I may try that out and get back to you on it.

You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf for this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $.50.

After you’re done with the bows, wrap any color you’d like around the center of the rectangle a couple of times before weaving in your ends. You can use these ends to secure your bow to the skull or you can glue it (which is what I do)

Finishing:
You definitely need to use fabric stiffener for these. I wet them down and adjust the skulls so they look right and then let them dry. You can also use pins to keep them in place, so they keep their shape. Once they are dry, glue the bows onto the skulls (or you can use other thread). I also stiffened the bows (keeps them nice and bow shaped). Attach jump rings to your earrings (I do 3 jump rings so there’s some length but you can do as many as you’d like), and then your french hook.

Tada! I hope you like this pattern and make tons of fun skull earrings for yourself and others!

    Would I have permission to make and sell these? I’d be more than happy to put your name as the original designer.

      Yes, you can definitely sell the items you make from this pattern. And I would love a link back to the original design. 😀
