Sometimes we all just need a quick project. There’s something so great about whipping up a project in a day, don’t you think? These quick and easy crochet earrings are so fun to make! I easily made a pair in one day.
I’ve provided 2 contrasting earring patterns: one in pastel colors, and one in bright colors. However, the possibilities are endless, so find a color combination that works for you!

The yarn I used for these is Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. This thread is so much fun. There are tons of beautiful colors that you can combine in so many different ways!
Now: don’t get scared off because these earrings are made from thread. I know it can be daunting for some people. And I’ll be honest—thread isn’t my favorite thing in the world either. However, thread is worst when you make a big project. These earrings are super quick and easy, so you will not have a problem using the thread to whip up the little motifs.

Finishing for both motifs:
- Block your finished motifs. I recommend using wet blocking. This will stiffen up the earrings so they hold their shape when you wear them! Find my tutorial on this here.
- Attach an ear-hook. Open the bottom with pliers, then slide it through the 3rd ch of the ch-5 loop, and close.
I hope you enjoyed this pattern! I had so much fun designing it! To view more of my free patterns, click here.
