It’s Sunday, a day of rest for some, a day to post for me <giggle>. How’s about my just poppin’ in to drop a new ‘Pumpkin’ Pattern on ya! How’s about that?
As you can see, I’m in a silly mode which happens when I actually get a good night’s sleep, which is quite rare for me given my son’s health challenges. However, I do seem to get a lot done regardless of sleep capacity. Not sure how. Ihope yinz in readerland are getting your necessary 💤 sleep
So, these lil’ pumpkin patch macrame earrings are a quick work up. You will need to know how to do the macrame rose knot which you can find on my youtube 📺 channel and it is linked below.
The pattern is basically just 6 rose knots in a upside down pyramid shape. You use 6 pieces of halved cotton yarn. Let me tell you what you’ll need:
Macrame or Foam Board
Fine toothed comb or brush
Needlenose pliers (optional)
Any Cotton yarn 4 ply weight. I used Lily Sugar n Cream in Oatmeal and Tangerine
Small 1/2 inch hoop with fish hook
Cuts: measure out 4 yarn strands measuring 16 inches each and 2 measuring 24 inches.
Pattern: this is a triangle pattern. You will stabilize your hoop onto macrame or foam board with a t pin through the tiny hole in the top.
Next, mount two of your 16 inch pieces and make 4 alternating square knots. After you make these, do a button or rose knot. Video is here (use the back of your t pin to push the middle filler cords thru as video uses a crochet hook)
Next, mount your two 24 inch strands and repeat the above. These should be to the right of the initial two rose knotted strands. Repeat this step with next two 16 inch strands as well.
Row 1 is done. 😀 Yay!
Row 2: skip first two strands, make rose knot with next 4, then, make another rose knot with the next 4 strands as well, then skip last two.
Row 3: skip 4 strands, make a rose knot with middle 4, Skip last 4.
You are done with knotting 👍🏾
Now, measure down 1.5-2 inches and cut across. Throw away scraps. Get out comb or brush and separate the fringed part. You can watch the short video here that shows how to comb out the yarn.
Finally, add fish hook finding and wear!
Quick huh?! I would love to see your creations. Just dm me on IG or shoot me an email.
Hope you sell a bunch or make your own!
