A PAIR OF OWL EAR RINGS
Yes, the mad spree of jewellery continues.. but I don’t see you complaining.. as you’re back to join me yet again in my journey of creativity and discovery.
There are so many ideas out there in the wonderful world wide web, that I wish for more time in a day, and maybe one more right hand to work with.. hmmm, what say?
Materials used : Today I’ve used Indian polyester viscose silky lace weight, with a 1.3 mm crochet hook.
Abbreviations used : (Using U.S terminology)
fsc : Foundation single crochet dc : Double crochet
ch : chain ch-sp : chain space
sp : space rep : Repeat
hdc : Half Double crochet sc-blo : Single Crochet Back Loop Only
Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg
Sc-blo : Single Crochet Back Loop Only : For this stitch, we work the regular sc, but instead of going through both loops, you only go through the back loop of each sc. For a visual, check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phf7Nj0_LJg
Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps. One hdc made.
For the cute pair of owl ear rings, I used the inspiration from this pattern write up. Do visit this blog for the owl ear rings http://divinedebris.com/olgaowls/
I’ve used this really fine (lace weight, almost like embroidery thread) polyester silk (purse) yarn also known as Kamal Kadai thread in India. I used a 1.3 mm crochet hook for this project. I have used two really small black beads for the tiny eyes. I love my cute fat owl and the brilliant colours just make it stand out so well, methinks. What say?
Blocking ideas :
I would suggest that you block your project, especially if you’ve used a cotton yarn. I generally use a white glue (Mod Podge or Indian Fevicol) as a stiffner.
I use 1 part glue to 2 parts water and make a light paste, and then I lightly apply this over the back of my work using a paint brush. Allow to flat dry before gifting or using.
Note : Kamal kadai / polyester viscose yarn does not specially need to be blocked and may not even accept blocking techniques.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
