I had my eye on crocheted boho hoop earrings in forever. They were the first item saved on my DIY jewelry projects Pinterest board.
So when I bought the Handmade With Love Ultimate Bundle, a collection of 200+ handcrafting projects, patterns and courses for a mind blowing 95 % discount and realized that it included an ebook with 4 different patterns for crocheted earrings by My Handmade Passion, I knew it was time to try my hand on something new.
I love everything handmade, and I love to extend my skills step by step. I do know how to crochet (I tought myself 4 years ago), but I usually lack the patience to crochet with those super thin hooks and delicate yarn.

Step-by-step Tutorial for Crocheted Boho Hoop Earrings
I won’t be sharing the crocheting pattern in this tutorial as it’s not mine to share.
But I will tell you where you can get it for a bargain
Buy the Handmade With Love Ultimate Bundle HERE. It includes the Set of 4 Crochet Earring Patterns e-book by My Handmade Passion.
Why you should consider buying the bundle, too!
By now I’ve followed along one pattern (app. $8) and took two courses about stenciling fabric ($69) and Shibori & natural deying ($20) out of the Handmade With Love bundle and I only paid as little as $47 for the entire collection of more than 200 tutorials. Sorry, the offer ended 11-30-2018 – but if you’ll sign up through the link above, you’ll get notified when it’s back on the market!
Plus I’ll teach you how to DIY the round hoops that are the base for your crocheted boho hoop earrings.
I don’t know about you, but when I decide on my next creative project, I want to start. right. now. As you can’t have all craft supplies that the world has to offer in your small space craft room (trust me, I’ve tried, lol), sometimes you simply need to get creative.

Supplies & Directions
- Crocheting pattern eBook by My Handmade Passion (As part of the Handmade With Love Bundle – sorry, expired 11-30-2018! But you can buy the ebook on Etsy.com)
- Yarn (I used a 100 % cotton mercerized crochet thread like this one)
- 1,5 Crocheting Hook (I only had a 2,0 mm at home – it came in my set – and it worked, too)
- Darning Needle
- 2 nickel free sterling silver plated hook earwires
If you’d rather buy the hoop, than make it yourself:
- 2 nickel free silver plated round hoops
To DIY the earring base you’ll need:
- Memory wire for jewelry making
- Pliers for cutting the wire
- Round nose pliers for bending the wire
How to DIY the base for crocheted boho hoop earrings
Cut a little more than one round (see image above) of your memory wire with your cutting pliers.
Using your round nose pliers you’ll bend both ends backward into a loop.
This way your crocheted stitches won’t slip off the hoop while you’re working on your project and you’ve created the connection to the hook ear wires for later.
How to crochet boho hoop earrings
You’ll find an e-book by My Handmade Passion with 4 different patterns (this one included!) as a part of the 95 % off Handmade With Love bundle HERE (offer ends 11-30-2018!).
Of course, you can search the web for free patterns, too. Maybe you find one you like over at allfreecrochet.com?
Once you’re done crocheting, add a hook ear wire to each hoop and try them on!
I am super excited that I now have a matching pair of earrings for my new dress.
The story behind the dress:
I bought it from this wonderful lady from Ukraine. As I don’t speak any Russian, this other wonderful woman called Judith (whom I ‘ve met on a blogging conference in Munich) helped me out. I think it’s simply amazing what kind of friendships we can develop online nowadays, don’t you think? #technologyrules
Those tassel earrings aren’t too bad either, right?

So cute! I have that bundle & forgot all about the earrings! These will be going on my list of makes for Christmas presents. 🙂
They are very quick to be made, Kristie. Excellent idea!!! What else have you already made from the bundle?
I love these earrings – so fun! Pinned them to my Fashion Accessories Board 🙂
Thank you, Marie for all the support.
Oh, my goodness! Those are the cutest earrings! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
They are, right? Thanks for stopping by, Marci.
Wow!! So creative and I love the color. They turned out so cute.
I thought the orange very appropriate for fall, too. Awesome you like them.
Those earrings are so cute! They look great with the dress!
Thank you Jenny. And the best part, they are so lightweight you don’t even know you’re wearing any.
They match your dress perfectly! There are so many inspiring jewelry projects made with thread crochet. I also bought the bundle last year and did a knit project, then moved on to something else. (With Good Intentions to return to some of the other projects, of course!)
Haha, this happens to me all the time. The good thing about the bundles is that mostly you’ll have your money’s worth if you only use two (sometimes even just one) item from it. And you get to keep all the tutorials and courses for ever.
Those are so cute! Pinned.
Thank you, Love.
Wow! I never would have thought to crochet earrings, amazing!
They are great, right? With more patience than me you can make them pretty delicate. I’ve seen them on Pinterest, too, but can’t bring myself to crochet with yarn that is as thin as strands of hair, lol
The earrings are so pretty. I love how they match your pretty new dress. Now you can make earrings for each outfit. That is so fun.
Knowing me, I would get bored making the same thing over and over again. But there are so many other possibilities to diy earrings out there.
I have zero talent in jewelry making, and admire yours!
I’m convinced you could make these, too. Your creations are always so impressive!
Such fun earrings! Pinning!
Thanks for your support!!
These are so pretty. what a lovely idea.
Thank you, Julie. I’m happy you like them.
Wow, these are just gorgeous, they look so amazing!! Love that color so much!
Thank you Katrin. Nothing screams Fall more than pumpkin orange, lol.
These earings are so pretty, I can’t wait to show my “yarn friends” as we call ourselves. 🙂
Wow! You have yarn friends? I’d love to have friends to sit down with and crochet. Have fun together!
The earrings look great, and I love the color you used. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.
Teresa, I am happy you like my craft. Thank you very much for your support! I love joining in on your party fun every once in a while.
I love earrings and crochet and/or tassels are so trending right now! Love these and I am featuring them on this weeks OVER THE MOON LINK PARTY which goes live tonight, Sunday, at 5 pm central. Please stop by to see your feature and link up again!
Thank you so much! I’m super excited to be featured ?
These earrings are really cute! I may have to give this a try!
Hi T’onna, I thought so, too.
So pretty and delicate. I love boho stuff, so this is right up my alley.
Hey, Erlene. I live boho stuff, too. I am dreaming of getting into Makramé, too.
