I can’t ever have enough of Bluebells, I love them so much it’s a borderline obsession! I wanted the bluebells to be dinky, dangly and adorable so designed this Bluebell earrings crochet pattern to be just that and easy so that you can make them too.
I love my beautiful bunch made with my Bonnie Bluebells pattern and started with that as my base. I did a little experimenting to get them small enough for my liking. I altered the flower pattern just a little and used thread to size down and achieved a slightly smaller flower with a more delicate look, perfect for earrings.

Not important for this pattern. To match stated measurements:
1st Round = approx. 0.4”/1cm diameter
Flower (Make 2)
Round 1: Start with a tail of 3-4” (7.5-10cm), make a magic ring and ch 1, make 6 sc in the magic ring, join with slst to first sc, pull closed. – 6 sc
Leave starting tail on outside (right side).
Rounds 2-5: Ch 1, sc in each st around, place st marker in 1st st, join with slst to first sc. Remove st marker. – 6 sc (4 rounds)
Round 6: *Ch 3, slst in 2nd ch from hook, sc in 3rd ch, slst in next st, repeat from * around, finishing last slst in same st as starting ch-3. – 6 petals
Fasten off and weave in the finishing tail, but NOT the starting tail. Pull the starting tail firmly to ensure magic ring is tightly closed. Thread starting tail onto needle, bring through 2-3 stitches to secure and finish by threading the tail out through the top of the bluebell via the centre of the magic ring.
How to Attach to Earring
1. Open jump ring 1-2mm, thread it onto the earring, using long nose jewelry pliers, close it, ensuring no gap.
2. If not using beads skip to step 3. If using a bead, thread end onto a fine needle or beading needle and thread on bead, position flush to flower.
3. Thread yarn end through jump ring and back through bead if using, thread onto normal sewing needle and through centre of flower to inside of flower, tighten until you have your desired dangle, secure thread onto inside of flower and weave in end.
That’s you all done, easy peasy beautiful bluebell earrings, put them on and admire!
