This rose is super easy to crochet and ready quickly. You only have to crochet 2 rows, then roll up the rose and sew it down. Your rose is ready. You can make the rose as big as you want by using a thicker or thinner crochet hook with matching yarn. I crocheted it with a 3 mm crochet hook and cotton yarn and it became 5.5 cm. This rose is very nice to e.g. to decorate a present, boring clothes, a hair clip or bag.
Needed: a crochet hook of your choice with matching yarn.
Cast on 32 chains + 3 chains. Leave a long piece of yarn hanging at the beginning to sew the rose.
1st row: 2 double crochets in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, * 1 chain stitch, skip 1 chain stitch, 3 double crochets in the next chain stitch *. Repeat between ** until the end of the row. End with 3 double crochets in the last chain stitch, 2 chain stitches. Turn.
In the 2nd row you work a group of (1 double crochet, 3 double treble crochets, 1 double crochet) on each group of double crochets from the previous row. For clarity I have crocheted the beginning of the 2nd row in a different color, see the pictures below.
2nd row: 1 double crochet in the 1st double crochet. (see photo 1).
3 double treble crochets in the 2nd double crochet. (See photo 2).
1 double crochet on the 3rd double crochet. (See photo 3).
2 chain stitches, 1 single crochet in the 1-chain space of the previous row, 2 chain stitches. (See photo 4).
This is how you continue to crochet to the end of the row. (See photo 5).
When the 2nd row is finished, fasten off, roll up the rose and sew it with the long thread at the beginning.
Happy crocheting, Catherine.
