The Coco Earrings are a free crochet pattern to compliment the Coco Top. Wear these earrings for many occasions to show your unique style.

Have you ever made a pair of crochet earrings? No? Well the Coco Earrings is a good place to start working with thread and simple color work!

This free crochet pattern uses four colors, and compliments the Coco Top to make the perfect outfit for dinner or respectfully celebrating Día de los Muertos/ Day of the Dead.

So I have to admit that I have not made crochet earrings in YEARS! And I thought about creating something with the left over yarn to attach to an earring hook, but worsted weight is great for many things, except for earrings.

I made a stop at my local craft store (which I shouldn’t do unsupervised ?) to look at the jewelry making supplies after looking through Pinterest and Youtube (again, I don’t know much about making jewelry). I learned that many crafters create a motif design or a circular motif/design working out from or towards the center of a hoop. Of course, I had to be me and think of a different shape and not find any supplies in that shape. So I grabbed the largest hoop earrings available (they’re so large that no measurement was provided on the package ?), and then wondered over to the embroidery floss section. Boy, there are a lot of colors in embroidery floss! I managed to find the same colors as the Coco Top, and then I wondered through the store some more because, you know, you can’t go and not look at everything.

Once I made it back home, I researched some more ideas, such as a flower motif since Marigolds are a big part of the celebration, but I didn’t like what I found. So I jumped right in to making the earrings to be mimic the top, once I found my steel hooks. Since there are multiple colors being used, the floss can become twisted, and it helps to untwist after every few rows. Also, each color will be carried along, rather than cutting multiple times.
