Craft Knitting

Beautiful earrings.we knit crochet flowers

Summer is a wonderful time when we put on the most bright and bold clothes, beautiful ornaments and accessories. Today I suggest you to tie openwork and very feminine earrings – an African flower, which will be the best decoration for your summer clothes!

We need:

  •  thread cotton 3 colors;
  • connecting rings – 2 pcs;
  • швензы – 2 pieces;
  • hook;
  • round pliers.

So, let’s begin. As you can see, one earring consists of two parts: a small one on top and a large one from below. First we will connect the main part of the earring – a large African flower. Below is a diagram of knitting with notation

I took blue, red and white threads for work. You can use any set of colors that will be more versatile for your wardrobe.
Knitting begins with a blue thread.
1 row: dial 6 air loops (VP in the future) and close the ring;
2 row: we  knit 3 VP lift loops + 1 column with a crochet (CH later) + 1 VP. * [2 CH + 1 VP]. Repeat 6 more times from the 

Now go to the red thread.
3 row: In each of the 8 spaces (place VP in the previous row), knit [2 CH + 1 VP + 2 CH]. Instead of the very first column with a crochet, connect 3 air lifting loops.

4 row: In each of the 8 spaces (place VP in the previous row), knit 8 CH. Instead of the very first column with a crochet, connect 3 air lifting loops.

We return to the blue thread.
5 row: 8 lobes tie a column without a crochet (RLS in the future) one row. Between each lobe, connect 1 RLS, inserting the hook into the appropriate place through the row (see the diagram). The last row is knitted with a white thread.
6 row: tie the entire flower next to the RLS. That’s all, the flower is ready.

Knitting begins with a blue thread.
1 row: dial 4 VP and circle in the ring;
2nd row: 6 sc. We pass to the thread of red color.
3 ranks: 12 scs (2 scs per each loop of the previous row) Add a white thread.
4th row: 18 sc (2 sc in each second loop of the previous row) Everything, the second part of the earring is also ready

Let’s proceed to assembly.
First, carefully hide all the strings. Make the mixture: glue PVA and water in a ratio of approximately 2: 1. Soak the top and bottom parts of the earring in this mixture. Now boldly stretch, shape and dry on a flat surface.

When the parts dry, take the pliers and connect the two parts of the earring with a ring. Then, from above, secure the schwenzy.

That’s all! Look at what beauty it turned out! And most importantly very quickly!
