Crochet roses

I stumbled over this great piece by a etsy seller called Trendyknitting, and wanted to learn how to make these great crocheted roses myself. You can find the recipe for it below.


Recipe for a large rose:
Leaving a 10" length for sewing, chain 57.

Row 1 (Wrong side): (Dc, ch 2, dc) in sixth ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2),*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) 5times, (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.

Thread yarn needle with yarn end from beginning chain. With right side facing and beginning with firstpetal made, refer to photo to roll Rose; sew to secure as you roll. Then thread needle with ending yarnand sew to secure.

A great way to finish off your knitting or crochet pieces, right? :)

These are lovely! A small project to try and you can use up odd balls of wool, they tick all the boxes

these are so beautiful !
I'm trying to make them but I'm a begginer and I'm having difficulties following the instructions... Do you have a diagram or pattern I could look at?

No Sorry, Neighbour.. :)

I haven't made them myself yet.
But the general idea is to make a long strip, and sew it in layers afterwards.. If you know how to make a crochet "shell", you've really have everything you need.
(Shell: Making several double chains in one chain, forming a half-circle..)

You can check out this guide.. :)

Good luck

Thank you so much for making the recipe available. It took me awhile to figure out what ch2-sp meant...just had to google it and make a false tries! Once I counted the spaces from the first row and thought about how many petals I'd be making in the second row, it began to make sense. I also think it was easier to use thinner yarn. I love my rose!

The roses are really look so natural.In which material it has made?I need it's preparation.can u give me some suggestion?

The Dark Knit said...

Cheap Cosmetics: They are probably a thick cotton yarn. I would perhaps suggest bying ordinary cotton skins, and using 2 threads in the pattern to achieve the same effect as in these pictures..

Good Luck! :)

Thank you for sharing the pattern. I have searched the web for different rose patterns but this one I like the most because the rose petals are so distinguished. So, after many attempts, last night I finally produced a rose that was worth sharing, so I put it on my blog. For the written instructions on how to make it, I inserted a link to you blog, I hope that is ok.
Thank you!!!

I wonder if I could ask permission to use this pattern to embellish my baby blankets on my Etsy Shop, please? If yes, could you tell me what name you would like me to give full credit to in the listing?
Thank you for your help!

Beautiful rose! Am trying t9 make it but don't understand the instructions - ch2-sp?

Thanks for sharing the pattern of your beautiful roses. Though I am a beginner and get confuse with the 1st row.
" Row 1:(Wrong side): (Dc, ch 2, dc) in sixth ch from hook (5 skipped chs count as first dc plus ch 2)"
What do you mean by "wrong side"? Does the first row begin with the V and end with the V? I have only 35 sps which are 18 V and 17 space in between V.
Hope someone can help me. Thanks
