I’ve been working on some new items for my shop, & there earrings are the first thing.  I don’t have enough of the floss I used for these left to make another pair, so they may show up in other colors.  I wanted to be able to use these pics anyways, so when I typed up the pattern for my own reference, I thought, “Hey, why don’t I post this on my blog?”

So here you go.

Watermelon Earrings

Hook (Use an appropriate size for your thread.  Somebody forgot to put her hooks up after working on these earrings & now she can’t find them to see what size she used. oops)
Black seed beads (5)
Sewing thread & needle
Jump rings (2)
French ear wires (2)
Optional: fabric glue

With pink/red thread:
Ch 6, join circle
Ch 1, SC x 11 inside circle, join to first ch = 12 SC
Ch 2, DC in the same st as the starter chains, 2 DC in each st around, join = 24 DC

Ch 1, {2 SC in next stitch, SC in the next} repeat {*} around & join, for a total of 36 stitches

Switch to dark green:
