Guest Post from Praew Channel - Crochet Butterflies Earrings

Hello Kitty & Buck readers! I am Praew from Praew Channel. I am so excited that I have a great opportunity to do a guest post here. I love to crochet very much so I would like to do a simple and fun crochet project for you to try!

I have lots of cute pastel colors of mercerized cotton yarn that I bought from the yarn shop in my neighborhood a month ago. Since I am honored to do a guest post for Kitty & Buck, I think it is a great opportunity to use my cute new yarn. So I started playing around with stitches and this is what I came up with.


Surprisingly, I used more than 1 hour just to decide which color I will start with. Finally, I picked this orange and teal green to make a pair of earrings. Yes...my earrings will be one orange and one teal green. I just love both colors.

If you would like to try to crochet these cute earrings, you are welcome to try. I’ve attempted to write out the pattern as shown below. Have fun!

What you will need:
  •     crochet hook 1.3mm ( 1mm is ok as well)
  •     mercerized cotton yarn size 20
  •     2 earring hooks
