This months crochet tatting earring pattern is Snowflakes! Hopefully, you aren’t tired of snowflakes after last weeks Snowflake Pattern Roundup
I like these cute little earrings for many reasons. They are fast and make great gifts and they can be worn throughout winter, not just for the holidays. Most tatting patterns can be used with any tatting method but this one is more specific to crochet tatting because of the special crochet stitches used for the points. Unless you completely modified and changed the EFCH to tatted chains which an experienced tatter could certainly do. It’s really a simple pattern. Just maybe made a little more special because of the EFCH.
What skills and materials you will need
You will need a tatting hook and a thread crochet hook. I used a 1.4 mm from Lacis on one set and the Takashima size 0 on another. They came out about the same. If you don’t know where to get a tatting hook to check out my Resource Library here.
I used size 8 silver seed beads and nickel free earring post.
