Purple Fan Crochet Earrings

Updated: Nov 29, 2019

Hi Everyone!

I know I've been missing in action for quite some time, and my postings are quite irregular and this is all because I got pregnant; and have been struggling with Symphysis Pubic Disorder; which have resulted me being partially bed ridden. Being in constant pain takes away your mood to want to do anything; however, the end is near, and we're expecting our baby next week! So, with my mood being lifted again, I am once again able to craft and do what I like. I've also learned that having a newborn join your household, you'll probably not be able to complete big projects; so I've focused my attention on smaller projects! Such as baby wear, jewelry and amigurumi!

Without further ado, let's begin with today's free Purple Fan crochet earring! You can support me by purchasing the ad free pdf version here.

Materials & Info

Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn - Lace 100% Baby Merino Wool - Less than 10

12 x Size 6/0 "E" Bead

Pattern Notes:

This is my first written pattern for crochet jewelry. Some techniques used in this pattern consists of incorporating beading into crochet; and jewelry making. I hope you enjoy this pattern and I hope I can continue making more.

Add Bead: First, you must use the smaller size crochet hook to pick up the bead so make sure the size you use can pass through the hole inside the bead. To add beads to crochet work; remove your working hook from the current loop; pick up the bead with the smaller crochet hook (the bead should slide down your hook, revealing the end; if it doesn't, then your hook is too big). Insert your hook into the current loop that you've left off, and pull loop through the bead. The loop should be exposed on the other side of the bead; remove the smaller hook and insert your normal size hook back into the loop and continue work.

Moogly have a great youtube video for this:


Ch = Chain

Sc = Single Crochet

Dc = Double Crochet

Slst = Slip stitch

St = Stitch

F/O = Fasten off

[repeat everything within brackets]


First Round

Create a magic ring.

Ch 3 and Dc once into the middle of the ring. Place marker on the chain 3 gap. Dc 12 more times into the ring.

Ch 4 and Dc 4 times into the ring. Slst to join with the gap made with the Ch 3. Pull ring tight.

Second Round

[Ch 3 and add bead to last loop. Slst into the 3 ch from hook. Sc in next st] repeat this 5 more times. You should now have 6 beads in total. F/O. Weave and cut excess yarn.
