spiky points on your ears

do you like the idea to hang spiky points on your ears or around your neck?

this is what i used:

  • dmc petra yellow and dark grey cotton yarn
  • hook size 1.75 mm
  • needle, scissors
  • glue and water (basic glue for children, just make a mixture of 50/50)
  • paper towel
  • square glass dish
  • earrings, necklace

_

see my tutorial:

how to crochet the spiky points.

when you’ve finished them soak the points in a mixture of 50/50 glue and water. remove them from the mixture and squeeze out as much liquid as possible as you smooth them between your fingers. then pat dry in tissue paper or paper towel and lay them flat in a square glass dish. let them dry and ready they are. attach them to earrings or on a necklace.

tip 

the glue you use is water soluble which means that it gets sticky or liquid again when you walk or cycle in the rain, for example. a textile hardener like paverol is a safer option.

UPDATE!

a small addition

if you’ve crocheted the points then make two rows of single crochet and only then fasten off.
so after the last treble of the pattern make 1 ch, turn, *1 sc into the first stitch and in the next 5*, 1 ch, turn, repeat between * and * once more.
fasten off.
