HANGING CIRCLES EAR RING

HANGING CIRCLES EAR RING

I guess you’re as fascinated with the jewellery craze as I am.. but this was yet one that I just could not resist.. A set of tiny little motifs that all join up to make this dangly hanging ear ring.. how smart is this? Right?!
So welcome back as we work on this new challenge together.

I was inspired by this photograph and have used the charts (well, part of anyway) to make my project.



Materials used : Today I’ve used the lovely Indian light polyester viscose yarn for the ear ring and some Indian cotton yarn for the bracelet with a 1.75 mm crochet hook.
Skill level: Intermediate

Abbreviations used :
fdc : Foundation double crochet                             dc : Double crochet
ch(s) : chain(s                                                             ch-sp : chain space
sp(s) : space(s)                                                           rep : Repeat
hk : hook                                                                      yo : Yarn over
sk : Skip                                                                         lp(s) : Loop(s)
st(s) : Stitch(es)


Stitches used :  (Using U.S terminology)
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

This ear ring will hang straight off an ear ring hook.  The chart here shows three sets of hanging circles.  I’ve opted to use two out of these three patterns.

Hanging Circle 1

We will make the first few rounds of the circle, and on the very last round, we will join it to the loop of your ear ring hook.  (Chart right on top, in case you want to follow that as well)

Start with a magic circle and 10 sc in that circle. 
Join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

Round 1 : dc in the 1st sc ;
*ch 1, dc in the next sc* ;
rep *to* all around till the end.
Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 2 : sc in the 1st dc ;
*2 sc in the next ch-1 sp ; sc in the next dc* ;
rep *to* all around and join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

Round 3 : sc in the 1st sc ;
*ch 4, sk next 2 sc, sc in the next sc* ;
rep *to* all around and join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

In our following last round, we will work a decorative picot. 
We will use a ch-3 picot, which is (ch 3, sl-st into the 3rd ch from hk).
In this round, we will also join our first little hanging circle to the ear ring hook.

Round 4 : sl-st in the 1st sc ;
*(2 sc + picot + 2 sc) all in the next ch-4 sp ; sl-st in the next sc* ;
rep *to* till the last ch-4 sp ;
[2 sc ; ch 1, join to the ear ring loop ; ch 1 , sl-st in the last sc ; 2 sc] all in the last ch-4 sp ; and join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

Fasten off and weave in ends .. glue in ends as well.

Congratulations.  You have one tiny little hanging circle ear ring ready.  If you decide to hang the second circle off this one, carry on with the instructions – else slip on your ear ring and take a selfie now.  Remember to tag me on Facebook :)


Hanging Circle 2

We will make the first few rounds of the circle, and on the very last round, we will join it to the picot of the earlier circle.   (Chart right on top, in case you want to follow that as well)

Start with a magic circle and 12 sc in that circle.  
Join with a sl-st to the 1st sc.

Round 1 : dc in the 1st sc ; *ch 1, dc in the next sc* ;
rep *to* all around till the end.
Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 2 : sc in the 1st dc ;
*ch 5, sk next dc, sc in the next dc* ;
rep *to* all around till the end. Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Round 3 : sl-st into the 1st ch-5 sp ; 5 sc in the same ch-5 sp ;
*sk next sc, 5 sc in the next ch-5 sp* ;
rep *to* all around till the end. Join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

In our following last round, we will work a decorative picot. 
We will use a ch-3 picot, which is (ch 3, sl-st into the 3rd ch from hk).
In this round, we will also join our first little hanging circle to the earlier hanging circle.

Round 4 : sl-st in the 1st sc ;
*sc + picot in the next sc ;  
[dc + picot + dc] all in the next sc ; sc + picot in the next sc ; sl-st in the next 2 sc* ; rep *to* all around till the 5 sc ;
sl-st in the next sc ; *sc + picot in the next sc ;  
[dc + ch 1 , join to the picot of the earlier hanging circle ; ch 1 + dc] all in the next sc ; sc + picot in the next sc ;
sl-st in the next 2 sc and join with a sl-st to the 1st st.

Fasten off and weave in ends… and glue in ends as well again.
