Simple Beaded Earrings


MATERIALS:
size 7 (1.65mm) crochet hook

MB (Move Bead) = move a bead up close to your work so that it will stay behind after the stitch is completed

PATTERN:
Thread 10 seed beads onto crochet thread. (It kind of goes without saying, but don't use any beads that don't fit.)

Start with a slip knot and ch 6. Sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch2 (counts as first hdc), hdc 4 sts into ring, ch3, hdc 5 sts into ring, ch3, hdc 4 sts into ring. Join with a sl st to first hdc.
Round 2: Ch 1 (do not turn), (MB, rev sc) 3 times into ch3 space, (MB, rev sc) in next 4 sts, (MB, rev sc) 3 times into ch3 space, rev sc next 5 sts, rev sc twice into ch3 space, rev sc next 4 sts, rev sl st to beginning rev sc.
Attach earring findings to the ch3 space that doesn't have beaded accents.
