Rosebud and Leaf Pattern to Embellish a Burlap Wreath

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

burlap wreath with felted crochet roses

I guess you can say I am on a wreath kick since the heart shaped rose wreath that I shared last week. I have been loving all the burlap wreaths I have been seeing in blogland and have been longing to make one for awhile. I used a wire wreath frame for this and used a combination of the techniques from Sarah’s tutorial on Becoming Martha and Laura’s tutorial on Top This Top That.

I thought felted flowers would be the perfect embellishment for this. The texture goes so perfectly with the burlap and I also don’t have to worry about them getting ruined by the moisture outside. I worked the flowers up with Cascade 220 wool yarn. The large rose is from this pattern that a shared a couple weeks ago. But the buds and leaf patterns are below.

Rosebud and Leaf Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • worsted weight yarn (wool if you want to felt them)
  • H hook
  • tapestry needle

Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.


For the large rose pattern, see here.


Large Bud

Ch 15.

Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across — 14 sts.

Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next, 2 sc in next, 1 sc in next, 2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in next, 2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in next, 2 hdc in next, 1 hdc in next, 2 dc in next, 1 dc in next, 2 dc in next, 1 dc in last, turn — 21 sts

Row 3:  Ch 1 (does not count as st), work *1 sc in first st, 1 dc in next, 2 tr in next, 1 dc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * across, work 1 sc in last st — 25 sts.

Fasten off leaving a tail of about 6 inches. Now, roll the strip so that it resembles a bud and use a tapestry needle to weave your 6-in. tail through the bottom of your flower, making sure to go through all layers of the flower.


Small Bud

To make the small bud, follow through Row 2 of the Large Bud pattern.

Follow same instructions for fastening off.



Ch 8.

Round 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 hdc in next, 1 dc in next, 1 tr in next, 1 dc next, 1 hdc in next, 1 sc in last ch, ch 4; working back along ch 4 just made, work 1 Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each of the next 3 ch; working along opposite side of foundation ch, work 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc in last ch, ch 2, Sl st into 1st ch made to join.

    This is so gorgeous! I just cannot envision a burlap wreath coming out that pretty if I attempt it, though… I HATE working with that stuff! Haha. But seriously, I LOVE this!

    Beautiful contrast between the fine flowers and rough fabric, lovely idea! Honestly, I would never get that fabric so perfectly equal folded ;-). Thanks for sharing!

        I have been looking for a rose bud pattern like this. The roses I have been doing kind-of look like other kind of flowers, even though they are pretty just not as pretty as these are.

        • Kara June 30, 2013 at 10:10 pm #

          Thank you, Terry 🙂

  22. Treasa July 1, 2013 at 10:07 am #

    • Kara July 1, 2013 at 10:28 am #

      • Sidney July 5, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

        What are the instructions for after fasten off? I have a flat piece.

        • Kara July 6, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

          Hi Sidney 🙂 Here are the instructions after Row 3: Fasten off leaving a tail of about 6 inches. Now, roll the strip so that it resembles a bud and use a tapestry needle to weave your 6-in. tail through the bottom of your flower, making sure to go through all layers of the flower.

            I can’t get to the pattern for the rose. It said to click ‘here’ but it didn’t work. I want to do the whole pattern with the buds and rose. It is just beautiful. I love the BL wreath. Thought this would be cute on hats too.

          • Kara October 18, 2014 at 5:49 pm #

            Hi Betty 🙂 So glad you like it! You can find the rose pattern here:
