Rainbow Season

Happy June friends! As you might know, June is Pride month and every year I take the opportunity to share some fun rainbow patterns for you to show off your handmade pride too. This week’s new release is for the Puff Rainbow Earrings pattern, so get your tiny hooks and thread ready.

As I’ve said before, I love earrings. I love making crochet earrings, wearing crochet earrings, and designing crochet earrings. It’s where I started my crochet journey many years ago, it makes me feel connected to my past self when I make them. I hope you can find the joy I do when I make them when you make these.

Don’t forget friends, the first Pride was a riot, a rebellion, led by Black and Brown trans women. I hope you join me in supporting their work and memory by donating to end police violence.

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) and lay them flat to dry completely. When they’re dry, add fringe (optional), attach the findings and wear.
