Crochet Rose…

 

For a fresh start  😀 😀 😀

Pattern courtesy: Megan

Only change I have made to Megan’s pattern is that I finished off with a row of single crochet in contrasting colour.

Directions

Note: Leave a long tail at the start so that you can use it to roll-and-stitch the rose together.

Row 1: 55ch. Into 4th ch from hook work 1dc. *1ch, miss 2ch, (1dc, 2ch, 1dc) in next st. Repeat from * to the end. Turn.

Row 2: 3ch, (1dc, 2ch, 2dc) into first 2-ch sp. *(2ch, 2dc, 2ch, 2dc) in next 2-ch sp. Repeat from * to the end. Turn.

Row 3: 6dc into first 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp. (7dc into next 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp) 12 times. (9dc into next 2-ch sp, 1sc into next 2-ch sp) five times. Fasten off.

Row 4: Attach a contrasting thread of your choice. Single crochet in each stitch. Fasten off

Thread the long tail onto a needle and as you roll the rose up stitch the base together.

 

Megan calls this pattern “Strip Method Crochet Rose””. It means that this rose is worked as a strip, which is then rolled and stitched. Viola!!…what was just a bit of crocheted strip until a moment ago is instantly transformed into a delightful rose 

THIS transformation is what I call CRAFTING DELIGHT 😀 😀

Happy crocheting 😀

  2. These look like fun to make. I’m just learning how to crochet, can you explain how the strips were made?

    Thanks,

    This is back in fashion?
    I remember my mother making this when I was a kid.

      I don’t know about that!! Frankly, to me, stuff like this has more to do with “passion” than with fashion. As far as I am concerned, this NEVER went out of fashion….and hopefully, never will!! 😀
