Flower Earrings Tutorial – 2. Working in a round

Pattern BEG002Woof and Welcome to the second Flower Earring lesson. I’m Olive the dog, and today I’m going to show you how to make a foundation ring and crochet in a round. Sound good? Let’s go.

The first step in this pattern is to make 4 chain stitches. I’m making a pair of blue earrings here.Lesson 2 photo 1

To start you do your foundation chain. Then when you’ve done that you find the first chain you made, and you slip stitch (sl st) into it to form a ring.

Next we move onto Round 1, which just happens to be the only round in this pattern. We do 5 chain stitches to make a petal, and complete it with a single crochet (sc) stitch into the ring.

When doing the sc stitch we put the hook into the centre of the ring and draw the yarn around the whole edge of the ring instead of through a single stitch.

And then we do another 5 ch and a sc!

Once we’ve made 6 petals in this way we cut the yarn and make a knot in the last sc.

Then we use the needle to sew in the ends. (for further instruction on sewing in ends see Eyelet Scarf Tutorial – 6. Finishing off!)

Until next time…. Woof!
