Happy June everyone!
If you’ve been around here before you know that during the month of June I love to make and show off rainbow colored designs. This is because June is the month of Pride for the LGBTQIA community. And I like to donate the proceeds of patterns sold during this month to the Trevor Project and to Trans Lifeline. And this June we are kicking the festivities off with the Flora Rainbow Earrings crochet pattern.
Like many of my previous Pride designs, this one is a pair of earrings. I love simple accessories like this because they’re perfect for any Pride events you may be going to but also work up well in any number of colors you might have on had. And they’re also great anytime designs you can work up in a day and wear all year.

As I say in the notes below, be sure to fasten off between colors and weave in your ends. This makes adding the next row much easier when you’re changing colors. And I don’t know about you, thread can be hard on my hands. I have been making crochet jewelry for years and it still makes my hands a tad crampy each time I make a pair. Luckily they take no time and I can hope over to something requiring a larger hook at any time (many wip club, where are you??).

Overall, I hope you have a great time making these earrings and wear them all over. I am so very happy with how they turned out and just can’t wait to make another pair for my friend.
And even though this month is a celebration, it’s also a time to remember the first Pride was a riot and a fight against police brutality. We haven’t left that behind and we must keep being there for the most vulnerable of our community. And I’m done soapboxing, I swear.

Have a happy June and remember to no matter how hard it seems out there, you are loved and you are valuable. Hugs <3 <3 Take care of yourselves and your friends and family around you.

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), pose them (extend the ch-4 on Rnd 6 out) and lay them flat to dry completely. When they’re dry, attach the findings, such as jump rings, and wear them.

And don’t forget you can buy the Flora Rainbow Earrings crochet pattern on Ravelry.

  1. This is such a pretty pair of earrings! Thank you for sharing the pattern!

    However, I can not get mine to look like yours. I believe my error has something to do with “fphdc” stitches. My a multi-dimensional while yours look flat, which flat is what I want!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh, mine isn’t flat, it does have a big of height to it due to the fphdcs. You could probably replace the fphdc with sc in the pattern and it would lay flatter for you.
      I hope that helps.
      🙂
