Earrings For Spring

Courtney Earrings free crochet pattern by DivineDebris.com

Happy April friends! Is it all Spring looking where you are? It’s definitely rainy April here. I keep hoping to see a change in weather but it hasn’t arrived yet. So, instead I’m going to ready myself for Spring with this week’s new pattern – the Courtney Earrings crochet pattern.

Ok, ok. I know that for a lot of people, this pattern is going to be an immediate “nope” because of that small crochet hook. But I’m telling you, these earrings are so easy that you could make them in a few minutes and then glare at the tiny hook for days after. Set it aside for however long you need, teach it who’s boss. Because you can make these earrings in under 30 minutes. When I was working on this pattern (after finding the photo in my FB album) I made 3 pairs of earrings in one day. Takes no time. I promise 🙂

Anyway… A week ago I asked on both Facebook and Instagram which people would rather see, the Emma or Courtney earrings – an overwhelming amount of people wanted the Courtney Earrings. They were the clear winner. Like, whoa! Winner. So I set out to make the earrings and see if there were ways to dress up this very simple design.

I added some beads, I did 2 colors, and I think later I’m going to add some fringe some of the other earrings. Basically I wanted to show you all the fun you could do with this design. Ooh! And I used DMC Floss for the yellow ones, because they have some lovely colors that I don’t have in cotton thread. Better still, you can make one pair a skein of Floss, so that’s handy right? So very many options to make each an every pair of the Courtney Earrings unique and special.

I hope that the options I’ve shown here have inspired you (and the small hook doesn’t dissuade you from trying this pattern). And if you’re like me and you’re stuck at home trying to think of new projects to try, I hope you give this design a shot. And if you find you like them, give some of my other earring patterns a try.

Stay healthy and safe friends <3

-Finishing-
Like I do with all my earrings, I stiffened these with fabric stiffener. Just wet them down with the stiffener (I dilute it with water some) and lay them flat to dry completely. When they’re dry, attach the findings and wear.

  1. It’s a nice pattern – I intend to use it to make Xmas decorations rather than earrings. BUT: I’ts too many pages to print. I don’t need all those pictures. It’s a waste of paper and ink. So I will have to retype the instructions instead of printing them. You should put the instructions all together instead of interspersed with all those pictures.

    1. I’m glad you’ll be able to find a use for this pattern. I do have a pdf available to purchase in my Raverly shop and it’s only 4 pages. If people are interested I would happily include an easy print pdf that would be only 2 pages on Raverly.

  2. How did you add the beads? I haven’t ever added beads to my crochet before but would like to know how. Is there a tutorial somewhere? Thank you in advance.

    1. I string the beads on before I start the earrings and then pick them up when I do the chains on the final row. There are some great tutorials on YouTube for adding beads to a project 🙂
