Christmas Wreath Earring Crochet Pattern

This wreath earring crochet pattern is the perfect finishing touch to any Christmas outfit.

A pair of Christmas wreath earrings lying on a wood round.

These 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?

How to Make Crochet Earrings

Crochet earrings vary in complexity.

This wreath earring crochet pattern requires a few extra materials but the actual crochet process is very simple.

The earrings are made up of 2 rounds. We’ll be crocheting around a metal ring to give our wreath structure before adding a second round with some fun texture.

What Kind of Yarn Should You Use For Crochet Earrings?

There are three main factors to consider when choosing yarn for earrings:

  • Weight
  • Fiber
  • Colour

Yarn weight is probably the most important as this will dictate the size of the earrings as well as wearability.

You want to choose a lightweight yarn so that your earrings will be comfortable and easy to wear.

Cotton and acrylic are both good choices when it comes to fiber as they’re easy to work with and generally come in a wide range of colours.

Finished Size

The finished earrings measure approximately 1.25″ x 1.25″ (3cm x 3cm). Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. However, using a different yarn and hook size will change the size of the finished item.


  • 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.

Pattern Instructions

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 sl st and weave in ends.


  • Using jewellery pliers, attach the 8mm jump ring through a st at the top of the wreath. 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.
  • Thread a piece of red yarn through a single stitch at the bottom of the wreath. Tie in a bow and trim ends.
  • Optional: Add some Fray Stopper to the bow ends.

  1. Hi Fay, thanks for a lovely pattern. Seeing as you are a fellow NZer, I wonder if you have a suggestion for where to buy the 12 mm rings?



        1. They’re 12mm. It does sound small so I double checked. The pattern is easily adjustable though so if you want larger earrings, you can use larger rings.
