Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a cool, new product called DMC Memory Thread Cones (find the review HERE) and since it was originally meant to be used for embroidery and I’m not a big embroidery person, I started looking for ways that I could use the Memory Thread with crochet. I got to work and tried quite a few things before I decided that I could create a pair of crochet earrings. And thus, this free crochet earrings pattern was created.
The Anabelle free crochet earring pattern is accessible for beginners and doesn’t require knowledge of any special stitches. We will be crocheting with wire and beads in this project but only one bead is utilized for each earring and I’ll show you how to do this in the video tutorial for this pattern below. If you can do single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet and slip stitch, you can make the Anabelle earrings. If you don’t know how to do these stitches,I have tutorials on these stitches available. Check them out below:
DMC Memory Thread is essentially a thin gauge wire that is wrapped in thread/fibre. This fibre makes the wire easier to crochet with than regular wire because it glides nicer and I had the added bonus of it being easier on my crochet hooks. I’ve crocheted with regular wire before and ended up with a crochet hook that all scratched up and gnarly looking at the end. Not fun. Anyways, the reason I decided to try to make crochet earrings with the memory thread is that you don’t need to block or stiffen them like ordinary earrings crocheted with thread or yarn. I know some designers who make gorgeous earrings crocheted with thread and yarn and many of them complain about having to stiffen their earrings. When you crochet with wire, this is no longer an issue.
The DMC Memory Thread Cones are currently only available from the DMC site HERE and only come in the larger cones. However, if you’re after a smaller package of memory thread, then do a quick google or search Etsy HERE for memory thread and there are some places that still have smaller packages of the memory thread available.
Gauge isn’t critical for this project, but keep in mind that not matching gauge will affect the size of your project and how much wire that you will use. Yardage given for this project is approximate and based on the gauge given.
