I was inspired by this very beautiful (and very late blooming – it’s now mid winter here) apricot rose and decided to crochet a few of my own…
Only much, much smaller than the original!
Sometimes I love to crochet something tiny.
But big and blousy or tiny and perfect, the pattern is the same… This is the rose pattern I use most often, it’s so easy you can make them in front of the TV – they require very little attention 🙂
Easy Crochet Rose
Use any corresponding hook and yarn – the above rose was made using a 1.5mm hook and crochet thread. For DK weight yarn use a 3 or 3.5mm, for worsted weight yarn use a 4mm…
Row 1: Leaving a long end, chain 40.
Row 2: Dc into the sixth chain from the hook, *ch2, skip one stitch, dc into the next stitch*. Repeat between * and * to the end of the row.
Row 3: Create petals: chain 2, turn, *6dc into the ch2 gap of the previous row, sc into the top of the dc of the previous row*. Repeat between * and * to the end of the row.
Finishing: Twirl up and sew together, weave in ends.
I think I’ll make another the same and attach them to bobby pins for Maia. What’s inspiring you right now? J – xo
