What You Will Need:
- Crochet hook (Size G is recommended)
- Yarn in the color of your choice (Red, pink, and white are popular choices for rose motifs)
- Tapestry needle
Begin by chaining 51 stitches. This will serve as the base for your rose.Step 2:
Work a single crochet
into the second chain from your hook. Then, single crochet
in each chain stitch across the row.Step 3:
Chain one and turn your work. Work one single crochet in each stitch across the row.Step 4:
Repeat step 3 until your work measures approximately 12 inches in length. This will be the stem of your rose.Step 5:
Once your stem is complete, it’s time to work on the rose itself. To create the petals, chain three and then work two double crochet stitches into the first stitch of your row. Chain three and slip stitch into the same stitch. Repeat this pattern
across the row, chaining three between each petal.Step 6:
Once you’ve completed your first row of petals, chain one and turn your work. Work one single crochet stitch in each chain space and slip stitch from the previous row. This will create a ridge between your rows of petals.Step 7:
Repeat step 5 and step 6 until your rose has reached the desired size. For a full and fluffy rose, aim for 4-5 rows of petals.Step 8:
When you’ve finished your final row of petals, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends with a tapestry needle. You can then attach your rose to any project you’d like using a tapestry needle and some matching yarn.
Experiment with different yarn weights and hook sizes to create roses of varying sizes.Tip 2:
Use green yarn to create leaves for your rose.
