Jasmine earrings

Going from summer to fall might be less shocking if you have some accessories to help you say goodbye to hot and bright days and welcome to cooler temperatures and more ‘undressed’ landscapes. Within this spirit, these jasmine earrings are born, and for them I choose these beautiful red and mustard colors which blend so good with all the leeves now standing at the bottom of the trees and the general atmosphere this season of the year creates.

I followed one of Oana step by step tutorial on youtube . She is a very talented crocheter and in this video she explains perfectly how to work the stitch in round, and how to achieve the final look of the earrings as well. It really couldn’t be easier!

It was so funny because for each pair of earrings I had at least three pieces and just tried to pick the two that looked more similar in size. Let me know if you too have the same issue with twin crocheted items  !!!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know if you are going to try the jasmine stitch and the earrings as well. I would like to know also if you are going to make them for yourself or to gift your friends. I will probably give them to my cousin and my sister in law, because we know, the most beautiful part of our art is to share them with others. I wish you a wonderful crocheting time my friends and see you to the next post. Bye!!!!
