It’s June! And if you’ve been a fan of my blog for a while you know that in June, I post rainbow to celebrate another Pride Month. This year is no different and I’m bringing you a brand new earring pattern, like last year’s Rainbow Puff Earrings, this year’s are fun and easy crochet earrings using size 10 crochet thread – introducing the Rainbow Arrow Earrings Pattern.
I love a good chevron (like my chevron necklace) and that kind of inspired this design. I wanted to create a simple to follow arrow style but also make it chevron looking. And with it being June, I just had to make a pain in rainbows. I am a firm believer that you should be buying or making your own Pride merch. Corporate Pride swag is antithetical to the spirit of Pride if you ask me.
Anyway, I hope you give these earrings a try. Or use a 4.00 mm hook and some worsted weight yarn and make some bunting, I think that would be fantastic. It would be so cute for holidays. Ooh, or add some fringe to the bottoms! How cute would that be? Oh, wow, now I’m getting lots of ideas on how to customize these. I’ll have to see what beads I have…
Happy June and Pride month friends!
This month I will be donating all the proceeds for this pattern’s pdf and any of my other Pride pattern pdfs to the Trevor Project and Trans LifeLine.

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, attach the findings, such as jump rings, and wear. You could even add fringe to the end for a little more fun.
