Free Pattern: Crochet Hoop Earrings

I love free crochet patterns, as my Pinterest boards, Evernote files and Ravelry account can attest.  Some of the free patterns work up to make beautiful items, while others leave me with a lukewarm Oye.  It is my hope that my first pattern is easy to follow and allows you to make a pair of lightweight, crocheted earrings that look great.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
