Pretty much forever and a day ago I posted my Cup of Cocoa Coaster pattern and it was a huge hit. The original inspiration for it was a pair of earrings I made years ago and in the post for the coaster I even said eventually I would get around to writing up the earring pattern for you all. And that time has finally come! Took me long enough, right? 😀
You can get an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc twice into the first st, sc into the next 7 sts, sc twice into the last st – 11 scs

Rows 4 – 8: Ch 1, turn, sc into the next 13 sts – 13 scs
Rotate the piece so your working down the side edge, slip st into the next row down, ch 8, skip the next 4 row ends, slip st into the next row end.
Fasten off, weave in your ends.
Row 1: Create a slip knot on your hook, sc into the second st in on either side of row 8, sc into the next 10 sts – 11 scs
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc into the next 11 sts – 11 scs
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc 6 times into the first st, skip the next 4 sts, dc 8 times into the next st, skip the next 4 sts, sc 6 times into the last st – 12 scs, 8 dcs
Fasten off, weave in all your ends.
You definitely need to use fabric stiffener for these. I wet them down and adjust the cocoa mugs 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, 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.
Have a great week!
