Marnie Earrings | Free Crochet Pattern
Have you ever considered crochet jewelry? Here’s a really easy set of earrings that will give you just the start you need! Crochet a pair of Marnie Earrings!
I’ve made a few crochet earrings in my crocheting career but I’ve always been a bit on the sidelines about crochet jewelry. I love the fact that I can make whatever I like, and I jump at a chance to crochet something different. But sometimes crocheted jewelry just doesn’t have the snap of chic you get with regular jewelry material.
My Theory of Crochet Jewelry
My first crocheted earrings were circles, similar to these, made from two colors of medium weight yarn. They were big and floppy, very bohemian, which is really how I like my jewelry. However, these days I can’t seem to like my take on dainty, crochet jewelry.
Jewelry needs to give your outfit a bit of a pop. They are an accent to complement your outfit and not blend in. So how do you make a crochet earring that isn’t just another bit of sweater material?
Choose small weight yarn, for one. These earrings use Super Fine weight yarn and a smaller hook. The gauge is tight so that the definition is well characterized. The simplicity of the shape defines these as casual, and with a little bit of beading, you could maybe stretch it for slightly more than casual.
For a very delicate, and formal earring I would recommend lace weight of a more novelty yarn, or better yet, crochet wire. My next experiment.
I collect out of the ordinary names, or names that just aren’t in very much use these days, and when my pattern doesn’t exactly have label friendly characteristics, out comes one of my collected names. Thus, Marnie Earrings!
Interested in making a pair?!
If you have never used beads in your crocheting before let me tell you there is nothing to it! I’ve written the instructions so that you will know just when to string them and when to use them. But if this seems a bit much, feel free to use jump rings and attach your beads afterward.

CIRCLE (make 2)
Thread 6 beads onto your working yarn and push on down and out of your way, you will pull them up when you need them in Round 2.
Round 1: make an adjustable ring by wrapping yarn around your smallest finger 4 times, ch 2, 20 hdc in ring, sl st in first hdc: 20 hdc
Round 2: ch 2, (2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in next hdc) 3 times, pull a bead up to the hook, ch 1 over the bead and push the bead up through the loops, * 2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in next hdc, ch 1 over next bead, repeat from * 4 times, (2 hdc in next hdc, hdc in next hdc) twice, sl st in first hdc: 30 hdc
Attach a fish hook to the top of each circle with jewelry pliers. And there you go, there’s nothing to it!
