Rose Pattern

Crochet Rose Pattern

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.

Here’s what you need:
  • 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

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.

Special Stitch:

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.

Rose Pattern

Ch 28.

Row 1: Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, *1 dc in next, 2 dc in next, rep from * across, turn — 40 sts.
 
Row 2: *Sl st in first st, ch 1 (does not count as st), 2dc-cl in next, ch 1  (does not count as st), Sl st in next, rep from * across, do not turn — 40 sts.
 
Fasten off, leaving a tail of about 6 inches. Now, keeping the stitches from Row 2 facing outward, and beginning from the side that the beginning tail is on, roll the strip into a flower shape (see photo below of how the bottom of the flower should look).
 
Next, using a tapestry needle, weave your 6-in. tail through the bottom of your flower, making sure to go through all layers of the flower.

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 …

    P.S. In your abbreviations chart, do you mean that dc = single crochet?

    Although I’ve mastered the standard scarf and even a blanket or two, my lack of practice leaves me a crochet novice. Still, I think I can tackle these little beauties! While perusing the blogosphere, I came across your lovely corner of the net. So happy to be following along.

    I started crocheting a pineapple cross that has four roses on it, about a month ago. I share with family and when they saw it, I ended up promising to make 9 crosses as gifts. When I started crocheting the roses I found they were a real pain and no matter what I tried, they just wouldn’t lay flat. I tried different size hooks and different size thread but it ended up the same. So now you have shared this (these) roses and honestly, they are just perfect to use on the crosses.
    I just want to thank you for sharing with us.
    I have been crocheting for sixty years and there’s not much I haven’t tried but once in awhile I come up against it. LOL
    Again, thank you so much for sharing. You do beautiful work.

      Thank you so much, Dorothy! It is absolutely my pleasure and I am happy to hear you like them :)

    Hello,
    Could you tell me whether I would be allowed to sell the finished product I would make from this pattern, please? I would love to use it to embellish my baby blankets on Etsy. If yes, could I ask what name you would like me to list full credit to?
    Thank you!

    • Kara September 27, 2013 at 8:20 am #

      Yes, you can absolutely sell any of your finished items made from my patterns, including these flowers. I would love if you could give credit for the pattern to Petals to Picots, http://www.petalstopicots.com. If you forward me a link to your listing, I would be happy to promote it on my Facebook page. Good luck!

      • Felicity September 28, 2013 at 4:37 am #

        Thank you so much, that is very kind of you!

        I’m still in the process of setting up my Etsy shop (making lots of things so it’s well-stocked from the get-go), but I hope to have it up and running by the end of the year in time for Christmas. My Etsy shop will be called ‘Happy Cats Crafts’. Thank you very much – any help I can get in promoting it would be vastly appreciated!

    Great! I will make this beautifull wreath for friends who will marry at 14th of february! Thank you very much!

  25. Nichole February 24, 2014 at 6:23 am #

    Lovely flower and wreath! I have a hat that needs an embellishment and I think this will be perfect. :)

    • Kara February 27, 2014 at 9:47 am #

      That sounds pretty, Nichole!

  26. Melinda March 3, 2014 at 6:30 pm #

    I tried making these, but they seem very small, and don’t look like the picture. What could I be doing wrong?

    • Kara March 4, 2014 at 9:55 am #

      First, I would make sure you are using the same hook size and yarn weight that I did and also that you are following the US stitch terms. Those kind of things can definitely throw you off :)
