Introduction

Liven up an old pair of hoops with this simple pattern.

With a small amount of #10 crochet thread and a #7 crochet hook, and in a few minutes, you'll have a new look.

Materials List

#7 steel crochet hook
small amount of #10 cotton crochet thread

pair of hoop earrings

Finished Size

Completed size depends on hoops used and number of rounds completed.

Gauge

Gauge is not important with this pattern.

The Pattern

Rnd 1: Make a loop around the hoop and sc around to cover the hoop. Crocheting over the loose end for several stitches will eliminate sewing it in later. You can cover the hoop completely, or to your taste.

Rnd 2:. Turn, (do not ch 1) sk first ch, * sc in next ch, sk two ch, sc in next ch, repeat from *. You should do these sc's a little loose to reach the next st.

Rnd 3: Turn, sk first st, * sc in next st, sk 1 st, repeat from * around.

Rnd 4: Turn, sk first st, * sl st in next st, sk next st, repeat around.

At this point, you can fasten off and sew in the loose end, or add another round. The white hoops above were done with 3 rounds and the black hoops were done with 4 rounds. The more rounds you add, the lacier the look becomes.

Thank you for this pattern. I worked up three pairs of hoops I had not worn in months. I used the J & P Coats metallic knit-crosheen for the extra sparkle, and I love the way they turned out!

I'm glad you like the pattern. I would love to see any pictures you have of the earrings you've created. I've produced a free PDF download of the pattern on my Lulu.com store.
