Earrings For Spring, the Courtney Earrings free crochet pattern
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

Courtney Earrings Pattern instructions
Rnd 1: Ch 5, slip st to form a ring *do not twist this ring*
Please note: this ch-5 is to create a very snug center of the earring. You’re going need to squish the 12 sc for the next rnd into the ring.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc 12 times into the ring, join – 12 sc
Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc into the next st, ch 3, *dc into the next 3 sts, ch 3,* repeat from * to * twice more, dc into the next st, join – 12 dc, 4 ch-3 spaces
Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc into the same st as join, sc into the next st, sc 5 times into the ch-3 space, *sc into the next 3 sts, sc 5 times into the ch-3 space,* repeat from * to * twice more, sc into the next st, join – 32 sc
Rnd 5: Ch 6, skip the next 3 sc, (slip st, ch 5, slip st) into the next sc, *ch 6, skip 3 sc, slip st into the next st, ch 6, skip 3 sc, (slip st, ch 5, slip st) into the next sc,* repeat from * to * twice more, ch 6, slip st into the same st as join – 8 ch-6 spaces, 4 ch-5 spaces
Fasten off, weave in your ends.
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.
Tada! There it is, the Courtney Earrings crochet pattern! I hope you love it and use the hashtag #DivineDebris on Instagram and I’ll share it in my stories!

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.
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.
Thank You for pattern! They are beautiful.
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.
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 🙂
Too bad this is so poorly written…
Hi! If you could tell me what exactly you’re struggling with I’d love to help you understand the pattern better. 🙂
I understood it just fine. I just didn’t like my finished project so I put leaves on the loops.
This is too cute, thank you for sharing!
Glad you like them <3 🙂
I thank you for kindly sharing this and I also thank you for adding the pictures! You don’t know how many times I’ve done a project and have no idea if I’m doing it right or not! These are cute, easy and I can now have matching earrings for any and all of my outfits! Again, I thank you for sharing! Blessings to you!
Thank you! I’m so glad you like them <3
I am so happy I wandered into your site! I have 3grandaughters and the all went together and got their ears pierced. Now I can make them some unique earrings. Thank you so much. I hope I can do them justice! 🤗💐
Thank you so much for offering this free pattern and for including the pictures!!
Really cute! Thank you for sharing this tutorial with us!
Can rnd 1 be done as a magic ring with 5 sc sts?
I’m sure you can use that. The ch-5 does give you more space in the center but I don’t think it will cause too much problem
Hi – don’t know if I’m being a bit dense but I can’t find the pattern on the site??
It’s a photo tutorial, if you have add block on that might be making it difficult to see.
I hope that helps.
Do you weave your ends in or just cut them off ?
I love this pattern! I found the directions, as a beginner, easy to follow. But there’s one part I’m unable to get right: how do you know where to join at the end of round 4? I’m hoping to get this right for a Xmas gift. Thank you!
Join into the first st of the round.
I hope that helps 🙂
