Is anyone else jumping straight into Christmas crochet now that Halloween is over? I’ve been sitting on this wreath earring crochet pattern since last year and I’m so excited to finally share it.
These little earrings are such a quick and satisfying make. You will need some jewellery making supplies (though if you’re a bit of a craft hoarder like me then you’ll likely have everything you need on hand) but once you have those, you’ll be able to whip up a bunch in no time.
How sweet would these be for end of year teacher gifts, stocking stuffers and Christmas markets.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 1.25″ x 1.25″ (3cm x 3cm) when using the materials listed.
Gauge is not important in this pattern. However, using different materials will yield different results.
You will be crocheting around a metal ring. I have included my st count as a guide but stitch count is not important, just make sure that your stitches are close together and that the metal ring is completely covered.
HOW TO CROCHET AROUND A RING
Place a slip knot on your hook. Insert hook into the center of the ring from the front. Yarn over and pull back through the center (2 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through both loops, first single crochet made. Continue working single crochets around the ring.
WREATH (green, make 2)
R1: With slip knot on hook, sc around the metal ring, sl st to first sc to join (20 sc)
R2: Ch 1, sl st in same st. Ch 1, [sl st in next st, ch 1] x19
Fasten off invisibly to first sc and weave in ends.
Thread a piece of red yarn through a single stitch at the bottom of the wreath. Tie in a bow and trim ends.
Using jewellery pliers, attach the 8mm jump ring through a st at the top of the wreath as close to directly opposite the bow as possible. Before closing the ring, add the 5mm jump ring. Attach the earring hook to the 5mm ring making sure that the earring hangs the right way before closing.
