Jolly Roger Earring Patterns


September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, an unofficial holiday that's just for fun. Swash your buckles and pull out your favorite Errol or Johnny pirate movie, brush up on talking like a pirate, or at least drawing out your Arrrs!
I know people who wear costumes and go all the way with it, if you aren't ready for that, you can bead yourself a pair of Jolly Roger earrings.

Example stitched with Delica beads and the hooks are handmade, you can find instructions for the hooks here.

All of these were graphed for cylinder beads like Delicas. For clarity, the gray beads are actually meant to be black.


Patterns are brick stitch, and they work up fairly quickly.
For more information about pirates, check out the following links.
Our English Culture Site has information about Mary Read, a female pirate who fooled men for most her life that she was a man and also an article on English pirates
Our Creativity Site has a great article on how to put together a pirate costume, and our Crafts for Kids Site has some ideas about Pirate crafts.
Still haven't had enough? I've been doing articles for Talk Like a Pirate Day almost as long as I've been an editor here.
A pirate amulet bag pattern,pirate themed bracelets and bead hair clips simple enough most children can do them. I did them with my daughter.

The International Talk Like a Pirate site has patterns for knitting, and there is even Knit Like a Pirate, some of you might recognize the knitter/beader wearing the tricorn hat in the second picture on the page.

If you want to do a bit more, you can check out this pattern for a felt eye patch.On my personal site, I also have a printable treasure chest box.
