About this pattern
The pattern for these Crochet Christmas Tree Earrings is based off of my 15-Minute Christmas Tree pattern. I have been on a mission to use up my stash for my designs and projects this year. That has included everything from my regular yarn to the likes of polyester cord!
This time, I chose to use gradient size 10 thread similar to the one I used for my crochet bookmark pattern. You can use solid colours too but the gradient yarn adds a unique touch and a nice pop of colour.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.
From this point forward, ribbon refers to the hdc strip you just made above.
- Getting hold of the end of your ribbon, make a 1” fold.
- You will then continue making folds. Each time you fold over the ribbon, make it shorter as you go up, creating your tree shape. You should have 6 folds.
- Take your larger sewing needle and pierce it through your tree from the bottom up to hold the folds in place.
- Cut a piece of yarn approximately 6” long, fold it in half and tie a knot as close to the end as you can.
- Thread the smaller needle on the other end and insert a pearl bead.
- After the bead, thread on your ribbon twice, followed another pearl bead.
- For more pronounced beads at the end, insert your needle through the front and back loops.
- The remainder of the threading will be ribbon, ribbon, pearl, ribbon, ribbon.
- Thread 3 pearls at the base of the tree.
- Tie a knot to secure the beads and snip off the excess yarn leaving a small tail.
- Add your ear wires to the top of the tree.
