Tear drop earrings *pattern*

I know its been FOREVER since I've posted anything  (crochet related lol)... But now that I've had my baby (who's 3 weeks old already, geez), I'm ready to get back into the swing of things! Being home these past few weeks, I've been trying to come up with some other interesting things to try besides purses and bags... Well my next best friend is jewelery, so I decided to try and start simple by crocheting some earrings... And I'm in love!! I've crocheted about 5 or 6 pairs already, which are all for sale in my etsy shop!

 These are all the one's I've done so far, and trust me there are going to be a lot more to come since they are super easy and quick to make. All u need is some scrap yarn and earring hooks which you can easily find at Michael's, or even Wal-Mart.

I'm gonna start off with the simplest of the bunch for my first earring patttern, and I'll work on writing some other patterns as I go for my next set.  We'll start off with these...

 Pink and Black Tear Drop Earring Pattern
Created by Brittany for CreativeMe!

Any type of yarn will do for this project and you only need about 8-10 inches of yarn for each earring, so its a great way to get rid of all the scrap yarn you may have lying around.

K hook

This pattern is done holding 2 strands of yarn at all times.

With 2 strands, chain 14 ( more or less if u want the earrings bigger or smaller.)
Sl st in the 1st chain and finish off. Get your earring post and slip it in at the top of the earring. Tighten it with some jewelery pliers... and you're done!!!

I'd love to see your finished work, so please feel free to email me pictures so I can feature your work on my blog!

Hope U Enjoy & Happy Crocheting!!
