Easy Crochet Drops Earrings

How do you like crochet jewelry? I am sure you are going to love the crochet Drops Earrings!

I made a few pairs in different colors and yarns, and now, I cannot wait to show them off!

What surprised me the most is how a different color can give these earrings such a variety of styles!

Crochet Earrings with Crochet Thread

For the first two pairs of Drops earrings, I used a 1.25-mm steel hook and crochet thread nr. 8 in yellow or Katia Yarns Syros in white.

The yellow ones are perhaps my favorite. Yellow has always been one of my favorite colors. It is bright, happy, and just perfect for the summer!

But look at those white ones! Don’t they just seem the perfect crochet earrings for a date or a fancy night out?

Crochet Earrings with Sport-Weight Cotton Yarn

I also made some more Drops Earrings using a 2.5-mm crochet hook and Sport-weight cotton yarn, like for example Lammy Yarns or Schachenmayr Catania.

I bet you can personalize the Drops Earrings in many more different ways and I’d love to see pics of what you make!

Yarn Alternatives

You can crochet these earrings with any yarn you like and the appropriate crochet hook.

To crochet the rainbow earrings you see in the pictures, I used Sport-weight cotton yarn, such as Schachenmayr Catania, and I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook.

How to Read the Pattern

  • The crochet Drops Earrings are worked in the round. This means that you do NOT join each round with a sl st. Instead, you directly work the next set of stitches. However, if you don’t feel comfortable with crocheting in the round, feel free to join your rounds with a sl st. The only difference is that you’ll have a more visible join, but that’s not bad at all.
  • (…) – Repeat the instructions within brackets for the indicated number of times.
  • If the pattern says “5 sc”, it means that you have to make one single crochet in each of the next 5 stitches.

Special Stitches

Increase (Inc)
To make one increase, simply crochet 2 sc into the same st.

Invisible Decrease (Inv Dec)
Grab the front loop of the first st, twist your hook downwards and insert it into the top of the next st, yo, pull yarn through all loops on your hook.

Magic Circle (MC)
