Hello everyone! New week, new month… what about one more easy new idea? For those who love knitting or those who love been creative, I have one fresh jewelry idea! Mini knitting earrings!!! I had a lot of google search before making them, because everything I found was made with wool yarn, making a “strange” knot with it and I admit I´m not good at making macrame knots at all!! So I had to figure out a new technique.

But then I had to solve one big problem.. How can I make it circular??? Mmmm how? Well, at first i tried to make multiple knots, one over the other, with the wool, but the result was a complete disaster. The truth is that I needed something as a base to yarn the wool over it and make it look like a ball. So, I remembered I had somewhere some beads with holes from an old bracelet I owned years ago. But noooo! A new problem came out. The bead is just perfect and looks like a ball, as I wanted, but the wool barely passes through the hole. So, I  changed the wool with a regular thread and YES YES YES  I finally made it!!!

Here is the easy procedure you have to follow to make those cute mini knitting earrings! Let´s start!

Supplies:

  1. needle
  2. thread
  3. a pair of earring blank bases
  4. 4 mini needles (I used those we find when we buy a new men´s shirt.) Ofcourse you can find them also at craft stores, ebay, amazon etc.
  5. stronge glue or hot glue
  6. a pair of medium size beads with holes

Procedure:

Step 1: Cut a long thread and pull it through a needle and make a knot at the end of it.. The thread has to be double.

Step 3: You will feel at the end that it will be more difficult to pass the needle through the bead. Well, to finish it just cut the access thread.
