I created these hoop earrings with a pair of hoop earrings from WalMart and some #10 crochet thread:

This is the exact pattern that got me interested in trying earrings!
50 some-odd pairs later, it also the only pattern I have not been able to actually do.
Have you considered doing a you-tube tutorial for those of us that just can't get it?
I get as far as the sc to cover, then lose it and end up with a tangled mess that keeps wanting to turn to the outside of the hoop.
I just can't figure out how to do anything worked INSIDE the hoop.

Thanks for the reply.

The "secret" is to crochet with a bit of tension.  That will allow the stitches to pull the fabric to the inside.

I hope this helps.
