I’m starting to think ahead for some Valentine’s projects and I thought a rose would make a perfect embellishment. I played around and finally came up with a sweet little rose I love. I am thinking of using it to accent a wreath … or maybe even make a whole wreath out of them. We’ll have to see what I come up with. But for now, I am just enjoying making up these roses. I also worked up some pretty little rosebuds and leaves which you can find the pattern for here.
- Small amounts of yarn, I used worsted weight yarn for mine
- H hook or an appropriate size hook for the yarn weight you chose
- tapestry needle

Two double crochet cluster (2dc-cl): Yarn over, insert hook into specified stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, repeat once more (3 loops will be on hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.
That’s it! Now just give a little tug here or there to shape your petals as you like and you are all set to decorate anything your heart desires …
How about a whole wreath full?! Click here to see how I did it …
