Wavy Shell-Stitch Hoops
◊Size 1.25 mm crochet hook
◊Hoop earring, with at least a 2″ diameter or 5mm diameter.
◊Floss thread, any color
Note: These rows are worked on the OUTSIDE of the hoop. It wouldn’t appear very wavy at first, but when you are done with the two rows, push the work to the inside of hoop and TADA you have wavy! I promise.
Note 2: If you are an experienced hooker, and know the difference between the “right side of work” and the “wrong side of work”, and are bothered when you see it and think ” the wrong side is showing!” If you have this problem like I do, start crocheting from the post part on one earring and start from the clasp part of the other earring . Then you will have them match so that the right side of the work is showing on each earring.
Row 1: Work 56 sc around the hoop.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, slst in first 2 stitches, *sc,hdc,dc,hdc,sc, (each in their own stitch) slst in the next 2 stiches repeat from * around.
Finish off. Sew in loose ends, and like I said before, push the work to the inside of hoop and TADA! Look at your cute earring, then repeat it again for the other earring!!!
I was just thinking of this pattern and came up with a new piece of info….. Depending on the hoop you are able to find, add multiples of 7 sc’s in row one if your hoop is bigger, if the hoop is smaller, take away multiples of 7 sc’s in row one.
