- Size 10 crochet thread. For the earrings in this tutorial I used Redheart Cotton Thread in Coral but any size 10 crochet thread will do.
- Size 4 crochet hook (2.00mm)
- Tapestry needle to weave in ends and add a stitch to hold the folded ribbon in place
- Spray Starch (optional)
- Jump Ring 7mm
- 1" Brass Silver Plated Fishook Earring by Darice (You can use your favorite earring finding)
- Pliers (optional: will depend on the thickness of your jump ring)
- Begin by making a slip knot and loosely chaining 30
- Dc into the third ch from your hook. Dc in each ch across until you reach the end of the row. (28 stitches total including the beginning chains you skipped)
- Ch 1 and turn, you will now sc around your entire crochet work placing 3 sc sts in each corner.
- Tie off yarn and weave in the loose ends using a tapestry needle.
- Fold your crochet awareness ribbon over until you are happy with the shape of the ribbon. Using the tapestry needle and a small piece of yarn, place two stitches through the overlapping sections of the ribbon to secure the ribbons shape. When you are finished with the stitches, tie off the yarn and weave in the loose ends with the tapestry needle.
- This step is optional. Lay your ribbon flat on top of a towel. Using your spray starch, lightly spray your ribbon. Smooth out the ribbon until you are happy with it's shape. Then, allow the ribbon to completely dry.
- Attach the jump ring and fish hook earring. If your jump ring is thick, you may need a pair of pliers to close the opening.
