Crocheted Leather Earrings

A Departure…Slightly

I’m still working on a couple of dear knitting projects and I’ve also got more knitting ideas rolling around, too.  Earlier today, my mind drifted to some leather cord I had lying around and I immediately thought, crochet!

I am sure this is obvious to those of you that check out my blog, regularly.  I don’t normally crochet.  I know how to crochet.  I add crochet edgings to knitting projects on occasion but knitting is really where my creative heart is.

I really love how they turned out.  I really like how the earrings look like molten metal links.  The difficult thing was working with the leather because it tends to be quite stiff and it takes some time to get it to relax but overall this was a quick enjoyable project and I needed some near instant gratification.   Who knows maybe I’ll crochet all of the leather cord in my stash!
