I made these for my oldest daughter.  They're made from two strands of sewing thread, and a #10 steel hook.   I do have the pattern (somewhere in my stack of spiral notebooks with patterns I've written out over the years)  I can find it if anyone is interested.



After I make the earring, I starch it to shape and then I usually take them outside and spray them with a few light coats of non-yellowing varnish to keep them from going limp in humid weather. 

Ok found that pattern.  I went over it about a dozen times, to make sure it was right, but if you have any trouble, please let me know I'll fix it asap. 

Star Earrings

Sewing thread (2 spools of any color or colors you like)
Size 10 steel crochet hook
Fabric Stiffener
(optional) can of non-yellowing clear spray varnish
Your choice of earring findings. (I used simple style of ear hooks for this pair)

Stitches: 

DC beginning cluster (beg cl) :  ch2, retaining last loop of each dc on hook,  dc in each of next two dc, yo and draw through all loops on hook.

DC Cluster (dc cl)  Retaining last loop of each dc on hook, dc in each of next 3 dc, yo and draw through all loops on hook

Using two strands of the sewing thread together:

Rnd 1:  ch 4, join to make a ring  Ch 3, 2 dc in ring, * ch1, 3 dc in ring.  repeat from * 4 times around, join with sl st  in third ch of beginning ch 3   (5 groups of 3 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2,  beg cl over the next two dc.  *ch 10,  sl st in 6th ch from hook, ch4, dc cl over next 3 dc.  repeat from * around, joint with sl st to top of beginning cluster.

Rnd 3:  Ch6, dc in same st as join, ch3.  * sk 4 ch, in ch6 loop work the following (dc, ch3, dc, ch5, dc ch3 dc)  ch3.  Dc, ch3, dc in next cluster. ch3 .  repeat from * around sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch 6 to join.

F/O

Block piece with fabric stiffener and allow to dry thoroughly.  (I recommend at least 24 hours).  If desired,  apply several light coats of a non-yellowing spray varnish on both sides, allowing to dry well in between coats.  The varnish will help to prevent the earrings from losing shape in very humid or rainy weather.

Attach chosen earring findings to one of the points of the star as shown.

This pattern is an original pattern by Linda Potts.  You may keep a copy for your personal use. Please do not reprint or sell this pattern.  If you wish to share it, you may link to this pattern.
