These nice earrings are very fast to make and I am sure that you will be able to make them even if you are a beginner at crocheting!

I believe that there is something extremely cute about miniatures, the smaller they are, the more special.
I thought that one of the most perfect ways to show miniatures is wearing them as earrings and since Halloween is coming, what is the first symbol that comes to my mind about it? Pumpkins of course!
So here are my pumpkin earrings, I hope you like them and have fun making them! :)

Step 1: What you need

  • orange and green cotton thread
  • crochet hook - I used a n° 4 - 1.75
  • a little bit of wadding
  • needle and thread
  • 2 earwires
List of stitches:
  • chain stitch
  • slip stitch
  • single crochet - sc

Step 2: The Pumpkin - Part 1

Start making a slipknot with the orange thread, then make 4 chain stitches.
Close the circle with a slip stitch.
Now make 5 sc all around the circle.

Second row: you have to make 8 sc on the 5 stitches of the previous row. So, distribute 3 increases, making 2 sc in the same stitch.

Third row: keep increasing in all the stitches to obtain 16 sc (redouble).

Rows 4 and 5: stop increasing and make 1 sc on every stitch.

Step 3: The Pumpkin - Part 2

Take a little bit of wadding and insert it in your "half" pumpkin.
We are going to start closing it now.

Sixth row: distribute 4 decreases now to obtain 12 sc. This is very simple, you just have to make a sc every 2 stitches.

Seventh row: keep decreasing to obtain 6 sc.

Keep doing this until your pumpkin is closed, secure and cut the thread.
