Make ’em or Buy ’em: Crochet Roses
Hi there friends, so many of you asked for the pattern for the crochet roses. Don’t crochet? I’ve done you one better, if you don’t crochet, I have a couple of links for you, where you can get these relatively inexpensively. I think they are such a sweet addition to a card, but just as sweet as a brooch, on a package or on a head band!! I think I’m dreaming of these in chenille, fine crochet thread, mohair and maybe even wool to be felted. By the way, this is a beginners crochet project, so if you don’t know how and want to learn, this is a perfect project to consider :-)
Leaving a 10″ length for sewing, chain 57.
Row 1: Dc in sixth ch from hook , *ch 2, skip next 2 chs, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch; repeat from * across: 36 sps.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn; 5 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp, (6 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 5 times, (9 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-2 sp) 5 times, (12 dc in next ch-2 sp, sc in next sp) 7 times;
Finish off leaving a 10″ length for sewing.
Roll beginning with the first cluster of 6 dc. As you roll, take a securing stitch on the bottom to keep the rose in place and place a stitch about every half inch to inch as you roll. Once you reach the end, tie off burying knot.
Here are some I found on Etsy:
