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!

- US 2.00 mm crochet hook
- Size 10 crochet thread
- Jump rings
- French hook
- Jewelry pliers
- Fabric stiffener
- I use Stiffy brand and dilute it with water
- A container for the stiffener and a brush to apply it
- US G (4.oo mm) crochet hook
- Worsted weight yarn
- I just used cotton scraps I have around the house
- G: 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows
(although it’s not entirely critical)
Terms/ stitches used:
- Rnd: round
- Ch: chain
- St: stitch
- Slip st: slip stitch
- Sc: single crochet
- Hdc: half double crochet
- Dc: double crochet
- Tr: treble crochet
- 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. 😀

- Height: about 1″
- Width: just over 2″
- Height: about 3″
- Width: just over 4″

Rnd 3: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), turn, slip st into the next ch 2 space, ch 4 (counts as a tr), [tr twice, ch 3, dc 3 times] into the same ch 2 space, ch 1, skip to the next ch 2 space, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] into that ch 2 space, ch 1, skip to the next ch 2 space, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 tr] into the next ch 2 space, ch 4, skip to the next ch 2 space, slip st into that ch 2 space, ch 4, slip st into the first st – 6 trs, 12 dcs

Fasten off, weave in your ends.
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.
Oh, I have to make these for family and friends so they can always carry some love with them.
😀 I hope you share photos!
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.
Hi can yoü please tell me what size jump rings yoü used as I looked online and was bombarded with loads of sizes. I want to get thìś right. Cannot wait to start x
Hi! This design is a little old so I’m not entirely sure what size I used, but it looks like it was 12mm for the big one and 6mm or smaller for the little one. You can definitely use any size you want, it just depends on how daingly you want them.
I hope that helps. <3
Thank you for the reply, yes that does help, I will order a few different sizes I think.
